A question for those living in Tokyo

This is a question for people who live and know Tokyo pretty well. I figured this is somewhat food-related.

I am looking to sell my parents' very gently used Villeroy and Boch silverware and flatware (plates of all different sizes and cups and saucers). I have about eight or ten dinner and salad plates and cups and saucers. I think the silverware comes in a 40-piece set, and some of them are unopened in their original packaging. Everything is in great condition. I also have tea sets and random other porcelain, bone china and silver tableware I'm trying to get rid of.

I'm trying to avoid shipping these because it'll cost me an arm and a leg. I have a car to deliver the items to the buyer if they're in the Tokyo area, but I don't even know how I would go about posting these items for sale. I can post in both Japanese and English, but does anyone know a brick-and-mortar store which specializes in selling these kinds of things, or an online shop where I can post these for sale?

Best Japanese-Style Breakfast in Tokyo?

thank you for all of your suggestions. i wish i could try them all. haha.

i'll look into the hotels in the shinjuku area because the thought of traveling far on an empty stomach is unappealing and will definitely be unpleasant for my breakfast companions (i get cranky when i'm hungry).

Best Japanese-Style Breakfast in Tokyo?

thanks, robb. i'll do some research into shinjuku hotels. i had a japanese breakfast at the century hyatt in shinjuku a few years ago and it was a small piece of grilled fish with pickles and rice. nothing fancy. i'm looking for an awesome breakfast with all kinds of little dishes, sort of like the kind of breakfasts they serve you in ryokans. i don't know if they exist outside of ryokans...

Best Japanese-Style Breakfast in Tokyo?

I'm visiting my family in Tokyo this winter and I'm looking for a great Japanese-style breakfast spot to go to. I'm looking for the traditional grilled fish, rice, pickles, onsen tamago type of meal, and I'd pay up to 3000 yen/person. I'll be staying with my parents, who are about five minutes by train to Shinjuku, and I'm willing to travel about 30 to 40 minutes for this.

Anyone have any recommendations?
