These both look fantastic thank you. You can't get away from the drinking, tilting man! England is full of them too!

Yakitori suggestions

Thanks so much for your detailed reply, a very interesting and insightful read. I will be staying at the Park Hyatt on the 2nd leg of my trip and I think Fuku is much closer to the PH. I will ask my hotel make reservations for me.

Yakitori suggestions

I saw a review for Fuku on the Japan Times website and had it in my list. Do you know if they take reservations please? I may get my hotel to book.

Yakitori suggestions

Thanks so much for your suggestion, it sounds like just what I was looking for. I will make sure I get there early as I hate queuing, more and more so the older I get!

Yakitori suggestions

I'm staying at the Conrad Tokyo for one night and would ideally like a yakitori restaurant within a 15-20 minute walk, so maybe Ginza or Yarakucho? Not too bothered if it's high end or hole in the wall, what's most important is good food. Any suggestions greatly appreciated!

Shinjuku restaurants

Thanks Silverjay, i had come across Uoshin in Roppongi that i was going to check out. I didn't realise they were a chain so having one near my hotel is a real bonus. I have done a google search for Fu'unji and it does indeed look amazing. I had no idea there were so many different types of ramen, I can't wait to try them!

Shinjuku restaurants

I'll be staying at the Park Hyatt for a few nights, followed by the Shinjuku Astina just behind Golden Gai. Thanks.

Shinjuku restaurants

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.

New Years Day Lunch

I will be in Paris over new year, will restaurants be open on new years day for lunch? I imagine a fair few will be shut but I particularly wanted to go to either Chez l'ami Jean or La Ferrandaise. Also, I would like to go to Angelinas for a hot chocolate, is this likely to be open? Any other new years day suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
