Overview

'Umm.' 'Yummy.' 'Tastes so good!' 'Really, this is the best.' Japan and food. It’s the very essence of their culture. And wow, do they have some tasty treats. No visit to Tokyo should be without sampling the best cuisine from across the country. Eat like a local they say. Well ok then, for this tour will take you to the local spots. Sample the food, the culture. What more could you ask for? It’s not called an all-star tour for nothing. You’ll visit three of Tokyo’s most important districts, trying out different food from across the island and embracing the unique city atmosphere. With seasonal dishes, this is about as current and tasty a tour as you can get. Welcome to the culinary capital of the world.

Itinerary

  • Ready to try the best of Japanese cuisine? Got the legs to explore three of Tokyo’s most famous districts? Prepared to get in among the locals, eat and drink beer, and get to know this metropolis? For that is precisely what you will do on this tour. It’s the perfect way to understanding how Tokyo works.

    You’ll meet your local guide, don't worry they are experts and know the best places to visit, and then head into the Yurakucho area. You’ll be stepping into narrow alleyways with swinging lanterns and neon signs (totes traditional!) Visit a local Izakaya (a Japanese style pub) and sample the food. It’ll be like stepping back into 70’s Japan. Then it’s onto Ginza (a modern district), to explore the exciting food spots. Again sampling is the name of the game. So, sample the food you will. Including the famous Sembei (rice cracker).

    The tour moves onto the third and final destination, the Shimbasi area. Famous for its eateries and Izakayas (more pubs, yay!), don't worry you'll be visiting them. Dine with the locals, eat like the locals and feel like you know Tokyo. It’s a winning combination.
