Tokyo for four days, help me fill in the blanks?

JulesTei | Sep 24, 2013 09:27 AM

Hi all,

I'm going to be in Tokyo for four nights in mid-January. I've been combing this board for specifics for weeks now, it's been very helpful, so thank you to everyone! On to my questions:

- We'll have four dinners. We're already doing yakitori (Birdland hopefully), omakase, and kaiseki, but I'm having trouble deciding on what our fourth meal should be. FYI, We'll be doing ramen, okonomiyaki, tempura, and depachika eating during the day, so those are covered.

Is it worth doing a second omakase? What other type of cuisine would you recommend we try? For reference, we live in Manhattan and are avid eaters, so we get to try a lot of fun things in the city.

- Our last night is a Sunday and I understand certain restaurants are closed, so what are our best bets?

- Secondly, are there any ramen/tempura/etc places that we would need to make a reservation for for lunch? My plan right now is to have a solid list to choose from and then see what makes sense depending on where we are in the city.

- Is it worth it to wait in line for Rokurinsha?

Thanks, all!
