Tokyo is the city of the world with the most Michelin star restaurants and that is not by accident. The Japanese are very critical when comes to where to dine and they place very high stanards when it comes to quality of the food and the price.
Basically, it is always best to eat at restaurants where the locals come and it is also true when it comes to Japan. Typically the quality of the restaurants where the Japanese eat in Tokyo is higher than where tourists eat.
In some of the very touristy areas in Tokyo and Kyoto the price is higher than elsewhere while the quality of the food is slightly lower.
You must keep that in mind if you are going to visit Japan.
