Kani Doraku in Tokyo - which location?

A friend has recommended Kani Doraku to me as they know I love crab. I would like to try the lunch sets as they look interesting and good value. I could go to the Ginza branch the day I arrive but the location in ginza looks tricky to get to across main roads. Alternatively I could go to the one near Uneo Park on my last day but as that is on the 8th floor I might miss the building!

The easiest to find seem to be by Shinjuku near the train station but I would have to make a large detour to go there at lunchtime.

The maps on their website won't let me copy them so not very helpful when on the move.

I know eating is a very social thing in Japan so I am generally planning on casuel dining rather than restaurants would anyone think it strange that a women was eating alone? Is all the seating low tables with a footwell? In the pictures it seems some branches have chairs and tables? Does that mean you don't have to take your shoes off as you do with the low tables and footwells?

Any advice or help with directions much appreciated.

I think the Ueno store would be easiest to find. I checked all of the Tokyo locations.

The building says "Nagafuji" in romaji and can be easily spotted from the street. It is about 150 meters from the Chuo Dori entrance to Keisei Ueno Station.

It's in the same building as TGI Fridays (American burgers chain), 8th floor.
