I’m going to be in Tokyo for 4 days, Osaka 4 days, and Seoul for 3 days in Nov. I know it might be a little late to secure reservations in Tokyo this late, but this was a last minute planned trip. I’m staying at the Hyatt Regency in Shinjuku and just asked the hotel concierge to try to book Den for 1 night. Based on what I’ve read here, Sushi Sawada seems to be highly regarded; however, they longer accept reservations from my hotel due to past experiences (not sure what happened). I’m looking for a a sushi experience maybe around $250 max per person (can do lunch or dinner). Is there anything else comparable to Sawada? Based on what I’ve read so far there are:
Sukiyabashi Jiro (may not be able to get reservations)
Also looking for a recommendation for Yakiniku as well.
For Osaka, we planned on doing a day trip to Kyoto and Nara and will try to make a reservation at Wa Yamamura and Miyoshi. Are there any restaurants I should try to book for Osaka?
I don’t have anything planned for Seoul thus far, it will be our first time going. Likely staying in the Gangnam area.
