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 favorite summer getaway spots?

Any favorite places you all have to get away to during the stinking hot summer months? I would love a long weekend away somewhere (ideally cooler!) We did Hakodate/Aomori one summer and really enjoyed it. Would love to hear your suggestions.

Hot water into cold water

I heard or read somewhere that pouring hot water into cold water was not a good thing to do. (I like my water luke warm sometimes) Something to do with religion or dead association with dead people (and Japan does not like that) Have you heard of this? Any sources I could see so I don’t mess up in a critical moment?

Annoying morning futon slapping noise. What time is OK?

There's a middle-aged guy, living in one of the apartments in the building across the street from me, who hangs out his futon between 7 - 8 am and then bangs the sh@*t out of them with one of those stupid plastic slapping devices. Honestly, I want to take it from him and slap him with it instead. Of course, I'll end up doing nothing of the sort, but I find this futon-slapping at that time so annoying and noisy and am astonished that he continues to do it despite his noise echoing down the whole street and him being the only person on the street to do so (at least at that sort of time). If he was in my building I might stick a note through his door or something, but I'm not sure about the protocol of doing that when the culprit is in a different building. I'm also wondering if the 7 - 8 am slot for futon-slapping is a perfectly acceptable one and actually it's me that needs the attitude adjustment. Thoughts?
