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

Good Sparkling Apple Cider in Japan?

This year I have a hankering for a good sparkling apple cider, like Martinelli's, which I usually had around the holidays with my family stateside. I've seen their apple juice at Kaldi Coffee Farm, and it might be sold at Costco, but is there something similar from Japan? I keep seeing grape or melon champagne style sodas for kids to drink around the new year or Christmas, but not apple. Any suggestions / brand names of locally made sparkling apple cider are appreciated!

coffee makers

So, I really want to invest in a good quality coffee maker. Until now I've used a french press, but my husband does instant coffee because it is the quickest thing to a cup of coffee. All of the coffee makers I've seen at K's denki and such are flimsy plasticy and feel like they will fall apart in 5 mins, but still cost ichi man. I'm afraid to purchase one online and have the same feeling. Anyone have a brand recommendation on amazon? I'm looking for one with a programmable timer for my mendokusagari husband.

Effective cold medicine

Always nice to be handed a cold as you enter a 3-day weekend. I've been using the medicine (off the counter) in the image but it doesn't seem to have much clout. Does anyone have an cold medicine that they turn to in Japan that gets to work quickly?

Looking for a good Fat Bike

Hi all, I'm looking for a decent, budget-priced Fat Bike (basically, a mountain bike with fat, 4-inch tires). Anyone know of any good, reliable online dealers for fat bikes (used or new) in Japan? Any Japanese brands you recommend? Thanks!
