Restaurant and rail questions for Oct Tokyo/Kyoto trip

Jump to last reply

We will be arriving in Tokyo (Haneda) on a late flight Oct 10 (arr 10:15pm). We plan on spending the first night near the train station - Toyoko Inn Tokyo Shinagawa-eki Takanawa-guchi, so we can get up the next morning and catch the bullet to Kyoto. We will most likely take a taxi from the airport to this hotel. Do taxis take credit cards? About how much will this ride be so we can have some yen on hand upon arrival?

I plan on purchasing my JR Rail voucher for 7 day pass in advance. Will I need to reserve seats or is unreserved adequate? From what I can tell (from hyperdia website) the train runs fairly frequently.

We plan on some days trips so figure the 7 day pass will make the most sense.

We will be spending 3 nights in Kyoto at Ryokan Shimizu, then will return to Tokyo (Century Southern) for 5 nights. Our 6th night in Tokyo will be near Haneda because we have a very early flight home.

I was in Tokyo about 25 years ago for business and remember eating at Curry, Yakitori and Shabu Shabu restaurants. I am looking for some recs for these and other types as well. Could be anywhere from very casual for a quick lunch, to places for a nice dinner (nothing too high end, but a little upscale would be nice for a meal or 2). 'Local', off-the-beaten path places are also welcome, and any "must eats". I need recs for both Tokyo and Kyoto.

I am not much of a sushi eater, but my husband is, and I'm willing to try if really good (and no radiation issues), so recs there as well.

Any other recommendations or advice in general is also welcome.

Thanks.
