Good "traditional-feeling" Japanese restaurants where a couple of gaijin won't embarrass themselves too badly?

My two colleagues and I are in Tokyo for a conference next week and are looking for good places to have dinner. We'd love to try some great Japanese food in a traditional setting, but we're not very sophisticated about Japanese dining traditions so we're a little worried we could get in over our heads if we try to go "too" authentic. (We can't read Japanese, for instance, so we could get lost in a menu, for instance.) But we'd like to try something that's not so Western if we can; we'd love to get a great traditional experience.

Any recommendations? We're on expense account, which is helpful. I'd be grateful for the guidance!

We're in downtown Tokyo but should be easy to get anywhere in downtown area.
