Unfortunately for the Tokyo government, the majority of foreign tourists are independent minded enough that they don't require their trip to Japan to be scheduled to the point of what they are going to eat every day.

Other areas struggle to keep even locals from being sucked in by the omnipotent black hole known as Tokyo, so it stands to reason they'd struggle hard with tourists too. It's a shame because there's so many beautiful places to visit here across the whole country.
