I'm planning a trip to Japan for my husband and me, and I could use some help! We are starting in Tokyo, and possibly traveling after that to Hakone, Miyajima Island and Kyoto--although we're still open to other destinations. (It will be a winter trip.)
I have so many notes for places to eat, and specialty dishes I'd like to try, but I could use the help of someone who lives (of has traveled extensively) in the country, and has opinions on favorite spots, or must visit establishments.
For us, delicious food and great experiences are more important than "fancy" restaurants, although we are open to anything that will be a wonderful and memorable. experience. We're interested in experiencing the food of Japan as unobtrusively as possible.
Thanks so much!
