Gyukaku is cheap and nice but I have heard that there are branches of Gyukaku worldwide now. Gyushige (牛繁), Anrakutei (安楽亭) are other Yakiniku chain restaurants that are easy to discover in central Tokyo. Branches are in Shibuya, Shinjuku, etc. Look for the signs :)

Mari Takahashi Mari Takahashi, Living in Japan

I guess Japan Rail Pass was valid only for JR trains. In Tokyo and Osaka, there are other train lines and busses to get around the city easily such as Metro. If you are planning to move around a lot in Osaka and Tokyo, maybe just purchasing normal Shinkansen ticket might be easier. It will depend...
