How many months in advance for Michelin reservations?

OliverB | Mar 22, 2014 10:14 AM

Just wondering how many months in advance are necessary to secure tables at Saito, RyuGin, Ginza Okuda, Sushi Yoshitake, Aronia de Takazawa, Nagazumi, Ishikawa, Tempura Kondo, etc?

I will be in Tokyo on October 29th but will be very disappointed if I'm unable to get reservations at the above restaurants. How far in advance should I plan to book? I've used JTB for my trip, so I'm hoping they will assist with dining reservations too.

Thanks so much!

PS - What about Kyoto's tables; Arashiyama Kitcho, Hyotei, etc? And for non-Michelin rated like Nishiki and Shoraian? When should we plan to make reservations in order to be assured a table?
