Tokyo’s vibrant food culture is legendary, and is one of the many reasons why people flock to the Japanese capital. On this Tokyo tour enjoy the food culture of Tokyo from an ordinary businessman’s perspective, as well as the tradition of foods in everyday life of Tokyo.
Begin the tour in Yakitori Alley, near Yurakucho, an area with many casual bar-style restaurants and the birthplace of yakitori, one of many Japanese people’s favourite appetizers.
After having a drink to go with the yakitori, you’ll travel to Tsukishima to visit “Monja” Street, where “Monja-Yaki” is said to have originated. In true local style, you’ll use a small metal spatula for cutting it to pieces then chopsticks to eat with right from the grill.
Take a quick stroll through Ginza, where you can find great confectionery shops and learn about the rich variety of traditional Japanese sweets — and, best of all, choose one to try!
End the tour by checking out a local pub for some more drinks, where you’re welcome to stay longer or return to the start point with your guide. Your guide can also recommend other cool local bars in small alleys, or a karaoke place for more fun into the night.
