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. Just in case http://www.kappofukutomi.jp/

    @Saitama - Thanks for the suggestion. Duly noted (although, yea, could be a bit far to go on this occasion). To be honest, I'm really out of my "zone" on this one. If I want to spend good money on a slap up meal I tend not to go Japanese for some reason.

    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

Your fave autumn leaf spots

I know it's still hot right now in much of the country, but I'm already dreaming of the changing leaves (and cooler temps!) of autumn. What are your favorite autumn leaf spots across Japan? Here in Niigata I really like the scenery and colors around Lake Daigenta which is about a 30 minute drive from home!

Recommendation please for Effective JLPT study resources

Good day and happy summer to everyone! Please spare a moment to share your recommendations for effective JLPT preparation resources. I have been invited to work part time as an Assistant English Teacher even they knew I am not fluent in their language both written and verbal, but it was fun and I made it through. Since then, I came to appreciate teaching here but I was advised that I will be more effective and well compensated if I have an JLPT Certification. Please, would appreciate your recommendation as to where and how to map a successful study and preparation path. Also, I have a plan to volunteer and start up a reading and practice your everyday English in my community which is going to be once or twice a month program. Thank you in advance.

Therapy Cats

Hello! I heard it was hard to find apartments that accept pets in Japan. I have a therapy cat who will absolutely have to come with me on my journey. Does anyone know if Japan apartments recognize therapy cats or how hard would it be to get my baby accepted? Thank you for the help!
