One week trip to Japan - Page 21

post #301 of 306
If one can swing data roaming, all the better. The maps and internet access will save your life. I need the maps and the instant webpage access like everyone else just to get around, and I live in Tokyo.

If you have a lot of time but little spending money, simply doing long walks around the city, including residential neighborhoods, can be fulfilling. There is tons of interesting residential design and occasional gems in the various neighborhoods that satelleite outwards from Shibuya.

If you can swing a little spending money on souvenirs, do so. But I'd rather prioritize food in Tokyo over sacrificing a range of food and eating only lowbrow stuff in order to cop goods. Tokyo is about food these days. Not everything is great, but there are a lot of amazing restaurants and dining experiences. Not all are expensive, and there is tons of quality to be had.

Thank god, I found this thread!!!

Gonna be there at the end of April.

2 nights in tokyo the 1 night in Hakoke at a Royuken and the back to Tokyo for 4 nights.

Bumping this thread because it's been really useful for me.

 

I'll be in Tokyo for a few days starting this weekend and I'd appreciate some Tokyo restaurant recs, mostly these "good value" Michellin star (or equivalent) places for lunch. Mostly looking for Japanese or neo-French. I've been in Kansai region for a bit now, so I've tried a lot of street/fast Japanese food - not a big fan of tonkatsu. Haven't had ramen that I found better than NYC ramen yet though.

 

Also want to try A5 Wagyu beef somewhere, but don't know what's the best form to try it in / where -- A511 seems to have a lot of buzz, so that'd be backup for dinner if there isn't a [cheaper] lunch option. Found this cheap wagyu place for lunch, duno how it is: http://tokyopigout.blogspot.jp/2012/02/matsurokuya-in-roppongi-japanese.html

Some sites also mention Satou House which is a bit further west, but near AL select which might be worth a visit. 

 

Any good Yakiniku places? How much does meat quality matter for yakiniku?

 

Planning to go to Tsukiji for sushi for sure, but more sushi can never hurt. 

 

Cheers guys.

do you know how their lunch compares with dinner? lunch seems good value but duno what they skip. I also feel like some kaisekis emphasize presentation at the expense of taste, which id like to avoid

do you know about lunch at Edition Koji Shimomura? base lunch menu is only around 5000 but I saw a menu and it looked like the good meats cost a lot extra
