Shinjuku restaurants

nippy | Jul 16, 2012 06:13 AM

Hi, I am headed to Tokyo in a couple of months and will be staying in Shinjuku. I have planned very busy full days and we will be having lunch at some of the popular/michelin starred establishments. In the evening, after a full days sighseeing I would like to stay near the hotel and eat at casual places. I would like suggestions for good ramen,izakaya, sushi, yakitori and tempura. The yakitori alley looks fascinating, is this a place for tourists who speak no Japenese at all? Is it just a case of wondering and finding a stand that takes yor fancy or can anyone reccommend one in particular? Also, is Golden Gai drinking only? I think I read somewhere that there is a good ramen restaurant there but I could be wrong! Thanks in advance for any help/advice you can give me.
