I am in the midst of planning a trip to Tokyo for our family of four (children ages 7 and 9) in early June. We will be staying at the Hilton Tokyo in Shinjuku, but are excited to explore. The four of us all enjoy food and the kids are fairly adventurous. They love sushi, but I understand there are many places that do not welcome children. I want our experience to be about enjoying our time and our meals, so want to make sure we choose appropriately. I did my study abroad in Tokyo, so do speak some Japanese, but it is rather ugly as this point as I rarely use it!
I'd love to find some great choices for sushi, tempura, ramen and/or soba, etc. and am very open to direction from fellow chow hounds. We are eager for input for lunches and dinners.
Any favorite places near Tsukiji? I know we will do that one morning.
FYI. We are doing a short trip to Kyoto for two nights, so plan to do kaiseki during that portion of our trip...
Thank your for helping us plan a great trip!
