Japanese cuisine is pretty modular and offers all sorts of "withs" and "withouts" for most of the dishes.
There are a lot of plain, but nice dishes available for little money, like Gyuudon (beef on rice) or Japanese curry (in basic form beef in a curry sauce plus rice). If you don't need a full meal you can always buy Onigiri (rice balls that come in all sorts of flavors, just avoid the seafood ones) or nikuman (dough on the outside, meat on the inside). You can get spaghetti with tomato or meat sauce without any veggies, or grilled meat with potatoes/fries at most "family restaurants", like Gusto, Coco's, Saizeriya, etc.
You also have many western fast food chains available, such as McD, BK or KFC.

Probably try things that aren't western, without limiting myself only to those things. Honestly I haven't done my research in order to speculate precisely what yet but when that day ever approaches I'll look into it more. I'd probably try a lot of new things.

Do you like spicy food? Spicy pork with rice is deliciouuuus. You may or may not like it. It's vegetables are usually limited to carrots and onions (sometimes sprouts) but the meat is the dominant part of the dish so you can pick your way around the veggies easily (my friend does it every time we get it from the local farmer's market).

There is a Japanese man that I follow on Youtube, Taro, who teaches his viewers about Japanese food, and how to cook them. He should greatly help inform you of typical foods you would encounter in Japan. He goes by runnyrunny999.

A woman, going by Ochikeron on Youtube, should also prove helpful. Like runnyrunny999, she makes cooking videos.

Namiko Chen is another good one.

Thanks for your support everyone, i believe your response are the sparks that are making this real.

There are a lot of accessible, cheap noodle shops that sell udon, ramen, and soba noodles. Then, there's also curry with rice and other rice dishes.

If you ever stop by the Tokyo train station or Kyoto station, they have a giant underground mall at both and myriads of restaurants to choose from. I remember there was like a whole floor of ramen shops at one of them. I can't remember which one though.

Oh, I remember passing by one restaurant that had different dishes of fried pork cutlet. Something like this. I just looked it up and it's called tonkatsu.

I was a picky eater when I went to Japan in high school. Ended up eating a LOT of white rice pretty predominately.

I have no issues like gagging from veggies or anything. Was just leery of foreign food and had no palate to speak of.

Saizeriya, Japanese-Italian.

Really good food, drinks, service and atmosphere from my experience. This includes excellent pasta, pizza, salads and you can get sides of rice and such. They also serve more adventurous food if you are daring. The fact it's not expensive is just the icing on the cake.

Depending on where you are you may find hotels offer very good western styles of food. Tokyo would not be a problem with many good, large hotels for example.

Hope that helps.
