We are ESL teachers in Seoul and will be in Tokyo for five days. All of us love sushi, ramen, BBQ. Any reccommendations for high quality but frugal fare would be appreciated.

Thanks to ALL

      thank you

    2. Near the Nippori Train Station, east exit, across the street on the corner is a noodle shop. There is a guy pulling noodles in the window. They speak NO English there and we speak NO Japanese, but they welcomed us anyway. It is a little dive with the waitress yelling the orders to the cook. Without a shadow of a doubt, the best plate of noodles I have ever had. It was a mix of veg, a couple of shrimp, bit of ham in a light soy and stock base. Just wait until you see it and point.
