Full description
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.

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

What a great experience - so much fun!

We had the best time with Ryan, our guide, who was both pleasant company and knew so much about Japan, the food and the culture. We tasted so much interesting and delicious food and had a great time. I would definitely recommend this tour.
