I really love Lotteria for their burgers and shaker fires (Soy Salt). Never underestimate the 7/11 Sandwiches on the go (they are of a far higher standard than Australia as many Japanese will eat them). From the train stations if your catching the train the bento boxes are excellent. Tokyo has one of the best French Restaurants we ever tried (we were taken by a local who took us to several places). It is really hard to make any recommendations as we were spoilt (has local friends) and Tokyo is a massive city which is far more complex and diverse than any city we have in Australia also I haven't been there in 4 years so many places may have changed in that time. As far as things to do in Kyoto review the guide (including video) I had pasted previously covering the different zones and suggestions: http://forums.overclockers.com.au/showpost.php?p=17649747&postcount=4070 It depends on where you are headed (and where you are from if your from Tassie everywhere will be warm, Cairns and it will all be spanner weather) - north will be bloody cold and you'll want thermals whereas south you may still wear shorts.
