Help! One day/night in Tokyo
I am feeling very overwhelmed with how to choose restaurants in my limited 1 day in Tokyo.....for lunch we will probably be in ginza or near imperial palace open to any suggestions. I don't like touristy places though and for my one dinner I would like to do sushi....we are very big on amazing sushi but are on a budget this time around so I would like a moderately priced sushi restaurant we are staying in Shinjuku but are willing to travel for dinner. Any help would be great!
In Shinjuku, more precisely in Shinjuku Gyouenmae, there is sushi-sho Tatsuhiro Takumi (was one star in previous edition), that sushi-sho style is alternance of nigiri/tsumami(appetizer)/sashimi(not my preference), or ask for the sashimi at first then the series of Nigiri(better in my opinion)..The menu was at around 13,000.-yens for diner….
In Ginza, you can find sushi at all prices.. yes, in fact, under 10,000.-yens for diner, you can have some good sushi, typically nigiri only, but nicely done, with assistant to the master as old as him and speaking English. I am thinking in particualr about sushi Kozasa, in a rather dark alley bordering famous Namiki street… if you want beauty, I rather recommend sushi Taichi, set for diner is at 14000yens..
Marunouchi is crowded, the Tokyo Station just had an open renewal.. so walk 5-10mn, and cross the Nihonbashi Bridge, on the right side there is the Tempura Tenmatsu, lunch set are very affordable, on the counter, .. not more than 2500yens..
