Ginza has some of Tokyo’s finest restaurants, where reservations are pretty much mandatory. It can be challenging to find a modestly priced meal in the evenings, but the resutoran-gai (restaurant floors) of department stores can turn up good deals. Tsukiji offers some of the city's freshest sushi and seafood, not to mention delicious street food during the day.

Yakitori under the Tracks

Unpretentious bars and eateries, many specialising in yakitori (chicken, and other meats or vegetables, grilled on skewers) can be found clustered under the arches of the swathe of railway tracks and the raised expressway running from Yūrakuchō to Shimbashi. They are among some of Tokyo's most atmospheric places to grab a quick meal and frothy beer.
