Experience Tokyo’s culinary hidden gems on this 3-hour Tokyo food tour through three very famous and must-see places in Tokyo. Starting off in Yurakucho, exploring Ginza and ending in Shimbashi, your guide will show you the sights, sounds, and most importantly, the tastes of Tokyo most tourists do not get to experience. Visit Gado Shita, a lively restaurant district built up under the brick arches beneath the elevated train tracks. Step into the narrow streets of the red lanterns and neon signs, so-called Yokocho Alleys, where you can find yourself back in the 70s of Japan. In such exotic and retro ambiance of the Showa period times, you’ll see local izakaya mostly frequented by locals. You’ll enjoy 2 food stops in this area that serve typical snacks/ starters enjoyed by local Japanese office workers and friends out for a night on the town. Enjoy traditional starter- bar snacks in one spot, and discover the regional tastes of Ise in Mie Prefecture at another quaint and interesting location.
Continuing in Ginza, explore some very interesting food spots where you can find a $400 melon, and a famous Sembei (rice cracker) shop dating back from the early 1800s. Taste for yourself the tradition and pride behind this Tokyo historic spot– their secret recipes have been guarded carefully for over 200 years. See the famous landmarks of Tokyo’s most expensive real estate area. Soon after we will go to a special restaurant where we will sample 6 or more regional foods from the south of Japan, in Miyazaki Prefecture. You will also have a chance to experience some amazing seasonal dishes at this place.
Finishing up with our last food stop for dessert and then wandering over to Shimbasi you can see how the glamorous Ginza clashes with the rustic old Tokyo. Shimbashi is home to some of the most authentic local eateries and izakayas in Tokyo. Have the chance to dine with locals for an evening you’ll surely never forget.
