Yelp-like resource in Japan? Can be in Japanese.

Hi hounders!

Leaving for Japan tomorrow morning. Super psyched but also overwhelmed - there is so much I want to try! I did a bunch of research on this board, but I also only have a vague idea of where I'll be staying (my O'Bahchan made all the hotel reservations). Is there a Yelp-like resource in Japan? It can be in Japanese, since my O'B *is* Japanese and still reads/speaks it. Does anyone know if Googlemaps would be a good food resource vis-a-vis location? Thanks!!

P.S. - Here are a few spots I've written down. We're doing the touristy Tokyo-Kyoto-Hiroshima route.

in/around Tokyo: Omae XeX, Sushi Dai, Unasho, Mentsu-dan, Tsunahachi, Sarashina-Horii, AYCE at Carne Station, Ramen museum.
in/around Kyoto: Nishiki market, Katsukara, En.
Hiroshima: Okonomi village.

      Thanks Silverjay! These look like exactly what I was looking for. I'll try and report back my eating adventures.

      1. re: middyboo is the best! i wish Yelp was just as detailed as they were. Having different sections of pictures for exterior, interior, view, and ofcourse food.

        Are these only in Japanese, or am I missing something?
        Is there something comparable in English?
