High quality Japanese restaurants in Tokyo
Looking for a classy Japanese restaurant that does set courses. The options seem so overwhelming and I usually don't go out for expensive Japanese food that I though I'd try and get some direct recommendations. Shinjuku, Shibuya, Daikanyama (south, southwest Tokyo station areas preferred). It's a bit of an occasion requiring of something traditional and sedate. Budget around 6000 yen a head. Cheers.
Unfortunately, nowhere comes to mind in Tokyo (I will think about it more), but I know a place in Kawagoe if that's any help!? Private rooms (tatami), stone and bamboo along the side of the corridor, about 11 courses, kimono clad servers... can't remember how much it costs exactly but in and around your budget with drink included; cheaper if no alcholol.

One of my favourite restaurants to go to when I feel baller (or celebrating) is Bakuro Ichidai 馬喰一代. It is a yakiniku/shabushabu place where they use top quality beef from Gifu Hida. The atmosphere is great, the food is awesome (especially their bakuro salad), and I often leave satisfied and feeling that every yen was worth it. Here is the address to their Ginza branch: 〒104-0061 Tokyo, Chuo, Ginza, 2 Chome−6−5, 銀座トレシャス 11F
