Just back from a 10days drive trip in Jap. The best things there were the spray toilet seat with warmer! A lifesaver everytime in morning of -1C to -4C outside temp...
Just Tokyo only? Heard that the last few days is quite warm for December.

Don't need to know Japanese.

Some have English menu. They may figure you're not Japanese and give that to you.

Don't have that bring waiting staff to display window and point.

Don't have point at what other customers are eating.

Ramen and some budget eating places use vending machine. Some have photos. For ramen shops with no photos take the top left option. Usually is the signature dish of the place.

For vending machines, you can safely choose the top left option. This is their standard dish. The others would be variations of it like extra spring onions, meat, combo, etc.

normally there will be a photo of sorts and a big one nearby to take reference. I find restaurant these days cater more to foreigners too, not including those who doesn't serve tourist, you will get more pictorial menu

Prices are always indicated on the menu. Staff are always helpful if you approach them.

If you walk into say maybe 10 restaurants...a number of them will have lesser items in their English menu compared to the Japanese one.....that's just the way that the country works....

Most restaurants got English menu. They usually have staff that can speak some English (or Mandarin) actually.

There was a small restaurant that I went to that doesn't have any English instructions on their vending machine. Their "best sellers" were listed on the top row with photos, so that's easy to see. The rest of the dishes are all in Japanese only, though sometimes if you know some chinese words, you can roughly guess what the dish is/has. The only staff there (apart from the chef) did not came out to help us out even though we lingered at the vending machine for quite some time, and the restaurant was almost empty. Turns out that the staff was from mainland and can speak perfect Mandarin. That explains why her service standards so low.

It is wine but it doesn't matter. Can only bring maximum 2 bottles per person.

One way is using Google Translate. Got the camera function just take the photo and then can translate already.
