Always enjoy dining at Kyubey. Almost always can get a seat without booking in advance. Oribe set we had on last visit was just enough for lunch and super tasty.

Ginza / Tokyo Nihonbashi
Ginza is famous for being a trendy hotspot, but it's
also a downtown area with shops that were founded over
a hundred years ago. Department stores and luxury
boutiques line the route from Nihonbashi to Ginza.
It's a long established tradition to shop and stroll
while the road is closed to traffic. Luxury hotels,
world class cuisine from talented chefs, and a
collection of glitzy clubs will make this area popular

I don't recall many non-sushi items but this was truly the best sushi meal I've ever had. My wife doesn't like sushi either so I went without her and it was worth it. This might be a meal for you guys to do your own thing.

Yes, there is an upstairs with a couple tables if sitting at the counter will be difficult for your children.

You can make a reservation over the phone. We made one for lunch as we were staying in an airbnb and didn't have a hotel concierge.
