hello, am trying to see what to suggest for my love who is touring japan with his band for next two weeks. the main thing is that it's difficult to get out of downtown areas (where their hotel/concert hall is) because of the time restriction...
first leg: hiroshima, stay at crown plaza hotel, 3 nights
ive been told the things to try are: okonomiyaki and fugu. any suggestion?
then: osaka, stay at hanshin osaka: suppose takoyaki may fit the bill as well? may be also some hakozushi? i think may be some kisune udon may be in order... but... any place particular?
and it's only a night over... boo...
then: nagoya, stay at tokyu hotel, 3 nights
miso katsu and hitsumabushi eels may be??
tokyo: 6 nights, tokyo dome hotel,
they do concerts in tokyo, yokohama, kawasaki, kofu and niigata
they will be returning to the same hotel every night,
would there be any english speaking izakaya around the hotel?
niigata- i would love to have him try wappa han and sasadango.
really open to suggestions,
thanks in advance. i wish i could be there. boo.
