You can consider going to a local supermarket and pick up some fresh fruits, for example, peaches and grapes. They may cost more than you are used to pay for the same types of fruits in your own country but you will not be disappointed (I hope) with the quality.

If you're in Tokyo, I definitely reccomend "天すけ" (Tensuke) in Koenji where you get to see the Tempura fried and served right infront of you. Go for the Tamago Lunch, you won't regret it :). However be ...

Do you like Japanese buckwheat noodle? Please try the real buckwheat noodle if you like. The real ones have completely different taste and scent. "Juuwari Soba" is the name for 100% pure buckwheat noodle. It is delicious. Tohoku area is particularly famous for buckwheat noodles.

I recommend Yakitori! It’s a Japanese style grilled chicken. You can find yakitori in most Izakaya. It goes with both beer and sake.  There are many kinds, made by different parts of chicken body, so try variety of Yakitori yourself!

If you like sweets, I'd recommend trying ningyoyaki.  You'll find ningyoyaki easily at Nakamise-dori, a street you will encounter when you visit Sensoji in Asakusa. It's a doll shaped pancake with red bean fillings.
