Tokyo: 3-Hour Food Tour of Shinbashi at Night

1. Tokyo: 3-Hour Food Tour of Shinbashi at Night

Explore the alleys of Tokyo's Shinbashi area, known for its rustic izakayas (pubs) and food stalls. Grab some of the most satisfying food on the planet as you discover the vibrant district after dark! Start by entering the chasm of eateries overrun on a nightly basis by the working class of Japan. Join the thousands of businessmen who go to their favorite izakaya bar for a quick bite and cold beer before going home. Stop for some sashimi (raw fish), large gyoza (dumplings) and tamagoyaki (omelet), and then continue to a yakitori stall serving skewered meat and veggies cooked over an open fire. Wind your way through the maze of izakayas to find one of the most hidden okonomiyaki (pancake) shops, where only the locals go. Savor an authentic okonomiyaki with a drink before heading back to Shinbashi Station for the end of the tour.

Tokyo Food Tour: 3-Hour Culinary Adventure

2. Tokyo Food Tour: 3-Hour Culinary Adventure

Tokyo’s vibrant food culture is legendary, and is one of the many reasons why people flock to the Japanese capital. On this 3-hour Tokyo tour you’ll join a local guide to dive into the city’s food scene, tasting some of the city’s best dishes. Get a truly local perspective as your local guide explains the history of the food you’re tasting and the places you visit, sharing personal experiences and food related family traditions and customs during the tour. Begin 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. Enjoy a drink of sake or a local beer, then sample yakitori at one of the many local restaurants, each with their own “tare” (sauce) mixed with their secret ingredients. Travel to Tsukishima to visit “Monja” Street, where “Monja-Yaki” is said to have originated, a type of Japanese pan-fried batter with various ingredients. You’ll have the chance to watch your food being cooked, chat with the cook, and devour your Monja-yaki fresh from the hot plate.  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! Usually made of rice and red beans, these sweets change based on the ingredients available at each time of year, and even their shapes are inspired by what you can find in nature during that season. Your tour ends here but don’t forget to ask for tips on what else to see do and eat during your stay. Fancy a cool local bar or a karaoke place? Your guide is happy to recommend  favourite spots so that your night can continue. Equally, your guide can help with directions back to your accommodation, or you can return to the start point with them.

Kiri showed us the real Tokyo, bustling as city and with food !!

The nice thing about a tour like this is the company of people that enjoy the same universal thing around the world : good food. Kirir as a guide was enthusiastic, answered all questions and introduced us to yakitori, japanese sweets, okonomiyaki and more, including an extra melon bread at the end. Also the stop at Tsukiyima is a place that for most tourists will not be on the map for a few days in this great city. So : well worth doing this !!!

Fantastic Japanese food and delicious sake

Joko and Norma have made for a very pleasant evening. The price was double and worth it. Delicious eaten in excellent cozy Japanese restaurants. Now I know that warm sake is actually not the best sake. This tour is highly recommended if you want to learn more about Tokyo
