Sharing my meal Itinerary :) Other recommendations?

Hi Everyone,

I'm going to Japan next week, i'm going to share my meal itinerary here. I mainly got the restaurants from articles, blogs, and recommendations here. If there's something you think I should stay away, please tell. :)

DAY 1: Asakusa - Okachimachi - Ginza - Yurakucho
RAMEN Lunch: Ippudo Ramen, Okachimachi
YAKITORI Dinner: Yurakucho Tokyo, Yakitory Alley, Yurakucho

DAY 2: Nihombashi - Akibahara - Shimbashi
Lunch: Bento (c/o Tokyo Great Cycling Tour) :) Anyone here joined this?
YAKINIKU Dinner: Maruni, Shimbashi

DAY 3: Shinjuku - Shibuya - Meguro
UNAGI Lunch: Noboritei, Shinjuku
TONKATSU Dinner: Tonki, Meguro

DAY 4: Tsukiji - Akasaka - Harajuku - Shibuya
SUSHI Breakfast: Sushi Dai, Tsukiji
KOBE BEEF Lunch: 511 Kobe Beef Kaiseki, Akasaka
TEMPURA Dinner: Tempura Tendon Tenya, Shibuya

DAY 5: Mt. Fuji - Roponggi
Lunch: Bento (c/o Mt. Fuji, Lake Ashi Tour)
TSUKEMEN Dinner: Tetsu Tsukemen, Roponggi
Snack: Gonpanchi, Roponggi (to try the Camembert Cheese & Avocado Tempura)

I'm open for suggestions but preferably within the same price range. :)

1. I would like to try good beef but only have a limited budget, ¥3800 would probably be the max, so I chose 511. Is this a good choice?
2. Do you think I should go ahead and break my budget for unagi and go with either Izuei Honten/Nodaiwa/Obana?
3. I read that Maruni serves Wagyu steak, has anyone tried this? :)
4. I chose Tonki just because of the open kitchen.

Any other suggestions for a better lunch/dinner? Thank you! :)
