I'm going on my first trip to Tokyo at the end of this month. It's a solo trip, for pleasure, and I speak and read no Japanese.
I'll be staying at Sadachiyo ryokan in Asakusa. I've got a long list of must-trys narrowed down for once I'm settled, but wondered what everyone thought about that first, jet-lagged 24 hrs.
Assuming that once I finally find the ryokan I won't want to venture out too far my first night in Tokyo. Are there any restaurants in Asakusa that are favorites of fellow hounds? I jotted down Namiki Yabusoba, which appears to be in Asakusa somewhere...I'm open to anything (teppanyaki, yakitori, ramen, soba, etc) except for the insanely expensive. I'm sure I won't be feeling lucid enough to really appreciate a wildly expensive meal.
And then, the following morning...do you think that would be a good time to do sushi at the fish market? I mean, I assume I'll be up at 3 or 4AM anyway.
Many, many thanks...
