Dear fellow food lovers,

Please help! I need some recommendations for good food in Tokyo. This will be my first trip to Japan but I've had my share of good Japanese cuisine outside of Japan. I only have about 4-5 days in Japan and will only be staying in Tokyo. I've made a list of some of the foods that I want to have while I'm there so if you guys help me with those that'll be GREAT!! but if you guys can recommend me anything else not on the list that are really good, and unique, and famous in that area, i'll greatly appreciate it too! Please provide names and address of the eateries, and hopefully some simple directions cuz I've heard the addresses in Japan are pretty crazy and things are pretty hard to find if you don't know where you're going. Thanks a million!

List of types of food I want to have in Tokyo:

-traditional sushi
-edo mae cuisine
-okonomiyaki
-tako yaki
-ramen
-japanese style italian pasta
-soba, udon
-shabu shabu (famous beef that melts in your mouth)
-mochi
-japanese style deserts
