I will be traveling to Tokyo early 2010, and I've been very excited reading through the posts here, as we make our plans.
We'd love to have a kaiseki dinner. However, I have allergies to some shellfish, and am concerned about ordering. It sounds as if kaiseki menus are set? Is it very difficult to change items if 1-2 items might be problematic for me?
I'm traveling w/ my husband who has no allergies, and I want him to be able to enjoy all the food I can't! Any advice is appreciated for this scenario. Also, if anyone has any recommendations of restaurants where they were accommodating to changing a menu set for allergies, I'd love to hear about it.
