Visiting Tokyo during New Year 2019/12/18 20:36
Hi All,
We will be in Tokyo on 30th Dec - 2nd Jan. On the 30th we will be in Asakusa for kimono hire. I look around websites and many said that lots of stores & restaurants are closed.
Anyone can suggest places to visit that are open? We also want to eat Kobe beef if any restaurant open?
Thank you.

Did you read the New Year's section on this website? It's very informative and even has a sample list of places open/closed over the holiday period in Tokyo.

As a general rule of thumb, religious sites and some big shopping centres will be open, most other stuff closed.

Went to Meiji Shrine on New Years day once. It was an experience: "Traffic" lights are installed on the shrine paths to control the flow of people, not cars. The air at the shrine was filled with flying coins so thick they looked like a one way insect swarm. But once was enough. A hot spring reservation in the mountains somewhere makes for a good 1 January as you're there to soak and relax and that's all you expect.
