Looking for Foodie Wisdom ! - Tokyo 19 Dec - 2 Jan

Looking for a bit of wisdom from the readers of this board....

Bit of a late plan to head to Tokyo for a Epicurus adventure from 19 Dec to 2 Jan

Normally I love doing the deep research of where to go, but I've left this trip somewhat late to plan properly

Hence I would greatly appreciate you assistance .... and I will post my thoughts after of the places you reccomend if you like :)

To give you some more info to thin down the never ending choices ..

-Will be staying somewhere around Ginza
-Want to see the Tsujiki Fish Market (useful to get a guide?)
-Happy to pay up for food that is worth it, but also keen to try the small local 'wonders' that aren't usually on most peoples travels
-Preference for experiencing more Japanese food rather than Western in Japan
-Will also be my 40 th in this trip, so aiming to have one ultimate' or perhaps a few', splurges in a place I wouldn't normally get in other countries
-Fairly open to all trying more exotic local delicaicies

For a bit of background, I have been on a trip to Kytoo and Osaka a few years ago. Found the best foodie bit was actually just wandering around our suburban hotel neighbourhood, and wandering into a local Yakitori place - proceeding with a fantastic series of grills and skewers that we cooked over our own coals..... Was an eye opener having them change the grills and wander through the people :) Also had an amazing 'salaryman'? breakfast under the a place in the maze of tunnels under one of the Osaka train Stations

Please let me know of all your suggestions
