Before I saw your post, I've started narrowing down my choices (which I'll amend based on your suggestions!)
Forgot to add Tsunahachi for tempura. Which branch should I be visiting?
Could use some advice from the experts. Have a trip to Tokyo early Nov for 4 days before heading to Osaka for three days.
I'm a bit lost in terms of how to approach looking for dining in Tokyo as there seems to be just SO MUCH of it.
I'd like to try a bunch of different budgeted places, extending up to about $30/pp for lunch and probably no more than $75/pp for dinner as only one or two of the meals. While I'd love to spend $300 for sushi, I will need to dream for now.
Tonkatsu: Maisen (lunch or dinner? is one better?)
I know this is vague, but I genuinely love Japanese cuisine and would just like to cover my bases with a bunch of choices.
Staying in Shinjuku area. Don't speak any Japanese.
