Help! Leaving in 4 Days for Tokyo!

Hey all,
I've just been invited on my first trip to Tokyo (first trip to Asia entirely), and I leave in 4 days. I would like to experience as much of the true Japanese cuisine that I can find, even though I will only be there for two and a half days. Here's what I'm hoping for:

At least two meals of truly incredible sushi (one dinner, one lunch, price not an issue)

1 meal of the best Soba or Udon noodles to be found

Any other recommendations you might have! Your help is appreciated!!

  1. Hi. Been out of Japan too long to give you specific restaurant recommendations but I can give you some suggestions of things to try, etc. Granted, you do not have a lot of time

    If you are willing to wake up early, go to the Tsukijii Fish Market to have a look and then eat some very fresh sushi.

    Cusines and foods to consider. Also, it depends on how experimental you are - You can find out what they are on the web (I don't have much time myself). - Okonomiyaki, Monjayaki, Oden, Chiwan-mushi, Takoyaki, simple grilled fish, Horse Meat Sashimi, Whale sashimi, Kaiten (Conveyer Belt) Sushi, Yakiniku (Japanese BBQ), really good Ramen (check this board for suggestions), Japanese Curry....
