Tokyo / Osaka / Kyoto restaurants?

mdiwan | Oct 16, 201607:09 PM     11

Hello! We are planning a trip to Japan in late March & are huge foodies, would love recommendations for Tokyo / Osaka / Kyoto. I had researched below - any thoughts / suggestions / places missed would be much appreciated!

Tokyo: we were lucky enough to get lunch reservations at KyoAji. For the other two nights, would love one "modern" kaiseki & one sushi:

- Narisawa or Ryugin or Takazawa? (we are leaning towards Takazawa?)

- Ginza Harutaka or Sawada or ? We are of course trying for Saito, but as hotel nor Amex concierge can help with it, guessing unlikely :/

Also on the list: Birdland, Fuunji, Sadaharu Aoki

Osaka: was thinking dinners at Mizuno & Yotaro. Also Yamachan for takoyaki.

Kyoto: Gonbei, Yamamoto Menzou and/or Honke Owariya. Lunch at Otsuka.

Thank you!
