A one-month pass from Warabi to Suidobashi is 9050 yen, or 300 yen/day. You can get off anywhere in the middle (Akihabara, Ueno) for free and if you ride farther (Ginza/Shinbashi) the remaining fare is calculated as if you entered at the nearest station (to your destination). A bonus hint: getting to Big Site by train is expensive. There is some bus ...

Is there such a thing as a one month railpass for Tokyo, and is it worth the price if I take the train an average 5 times a day? No, as far as I know there are only commuter tickets, which are valid only for a specific route. Note also that there are multiple companies that operate public transportation in Tokyo, and each has their own tickets; there ...

Curry is an option (my favorite being 'Go Go Curry!'), they will have different meats available that isn't seafood. I won't repeat all of the other options listed, but don't knock eating western food. When I visited Kyoto, I went to McDonald's just to try another culture's take on something that was familiar. I happened to be there around Halloween, so ...

A really easy way to find casual food in Tokyo is to check out the plastic replica food in the windows of restaurants. You can easily recognize Donburi, Soba, Ramen etc. and the price is usually stated on the description. You might get a surprise such as chilled noodles rather than hot if you don't know a few characters. Personally one of my favorites is ...

I was in Tokyo last month, and I am also not a fan of seafood. I assure you, you will be fine even without doing any research beforehand. You should be able to walk into almost literally any restaurant and find something you will enjoy. There are Japanese people who don't like seafood, too, so even the sushi restaurant we visited served Udon noodles and ...

Asking if you'll be able to find non-seafood options in Tokyo, Japan is like asking if you'll be able to find non-seafood options in Rome, Italy. Yes, it's a capital city in a country with a lot of sea boarders, and yes, you will find a lot of dishes with seafood in it, but no moreso than you'd find in any other sea-boardered area. Tokyo is a large (very ...

Gyoza: little wonton-style deep fried or steamed "dumplings". Sukiyaki consists of meat (usually thinly sliced beef) which is slowly cooked or simmered at the table, alongside vegetables and other ingredients. Katsu means cutlet, and is usually pork or chicken. Yummy. Katsudon: Katsu soup. Tonkatsu: Breaded katsu. Yakisoba: prepared by frying ...

I reckon that individual restaurant recommendations are not the best way to go in most cases, but telling you to have ramen in Tokyo without pointing you to the right places is like telling you to have texmex in the Bay Area without telling where to go: you may end up eating at Taco Bell and having a bad experience. The thing about ramen is that, besides ...

There is a review here of Fukuro no Mise, which mentions an English set of instructions and an English speaker who works on Fridays. The review is from January 2015, so it's likely to be the same still. The shop's page (in Japanese) is here

Okonomiyaki and Ramen are both dishes with great variety, available with meat as well as seafood. Then there's Sukiyaki and Shabu-Shabu, various donburi, yakitori, vegetarian sushi variants, omurice... that's all the most common ones, I think.

While Japanese cuisine uses a lot of seafood, there are plenty of dishes based on beef, poultry, etc. as well as vegetable-based dishes. The problems usually arise when people have allergies or religious/moral objections to fish or shellfish, which might appear "invisibly" in sauces and seasonings. As a vegetarian who is willing to tolerate some "invisible" ...

Yes, it is usual, at least in Japan. Note that even in Europe you can't book too early. Although regular airlines such as JAL and ANA operate on a similar schedule than other international airlines (i.e., tickets go on sale about a year in advance) for international routes, low-cost airlines operate on a tighter schedule. For example, Summer 2015 tickets at ...
