I apologize in advance for what I recognize is an annoying request.
In less than 24 hours, my wife and I will be arriving in Tokyo for a week long trip in Japan - our first. We have 4 days in Tokyo and 3 days in Kyoto.
Due to very unforgiving work schedules for both of us, we haven't done an ounce of research or planning for places to eat. I know how hard reservations are for foreigners.
So, two questions:
1) are we completely out of luck?
2) if you were in our shoes, what would you do?
Any specific non-reservation-requiring suggestions would also be most welcome. We eat anything and are quite familiar with Japanese cuisine.
Sorry again and thanks for any help you can provide.
