Itinerary

Tokyo's vibrant nightlife and food culture is legendary and is one of the leading reasons why people flock to the Japanese capital every year. On this Tokyo tour enjoy the food culture of Tokyo with a small group of a maximum of twelve people, as well as the tradition of foods in everyday life of Tokyo.

Your tour will commence in the evening at 5:00 PM from JR Yurakucho station, Ginza exit and throughout your tour your local guide will explain the history of food and places you visit, sharing with you their own personal experiences and food-related family traditions and customs during the tour. The first stop will be in Yakitori Alley, near Yurakucho, an area with many casual bar-style restaurants and the birthplace of yakitori, one of Japan’s favorite appetizers. Savor a drink of traditional sake or beer and move on to sample the iconic yakitori at one of the many local restaurants, each with their own unique sauce or tare with some secret ingredients.

After relishing a drink along with some yakitori, the tour will head on to Tsukishima to visit “Monja” Street, where “Monja-Yaki” is said to have originated. Often compared with Okonomi-yaki in Osaka, Monja-yaki is a type of Japanese pan-fried batter with various ingredients. The ingredients are finely chopped and mixed into the batter before grilling. Here you will get to experience a live kitchen, chat with the cook to understand the cooking process of the food being served to you and relish your Monja-yaki fresh from the hot plate. In true local style, you’ll use a small metal spatula for cutting it to pieces then chopsticks to eat with. Stroll through Ginza, the main shopping district of Tokyo, where you can find the best confectionery shops and learn about the rich variety of traditional Japanese sweets. You can also try some of these sweets to get a better idea of the flavors that make up Japanese cuisine. After these tastings, your tour will end with the guide giving you information about how to get to your hotel, or if you want to try out some restaurants and pubs, you can get some tips too.
