Meet your guide and group in the early evening at a central meeting point. Then eat and drink your way through some of the city’s top eateries for locals, an aspect of Tokyo few tourists ever get to experience.

Stop by Gado Shita, a busy restaurant area located directly under the city’s elevated train tracks. Wander amidst the narrow streets, blazing neon sights, and enticing smells of this culinary hot spot, an area which hearkens back to Japan in the 1970s. Stop by a selection of local ‘izakayas’ (pubs) frequented by residents, where you try out different varieties of ‘yakitori’ and drinks.

Head next to Tokyo’s upscale Ginza neighborhood, an area that provides the perfect contrast to the labyrinths of Gado Shita. Marvel at the upscale food shops selling $500 designer melons and let your mouth water as you pass by meticulously-decorated pastries in the display cases of local retailers.

Finish your food exploration by visiting Shimbashi, where you get a chance to take a deeper dive into some of Tokyo’s many rustic eateries and charming ‘izakayas.’ Finish your excursion in Shimbashi.

excellent experience of local food and culture

ME and my wife met Hirotake Watanabe (our guide) and couple of other people that were in the same tour at the prespecified time and place. Already from the introduction it was clear that this would be a great tour with our guide that was open, fun, extremely knowledgeable and with a mission to have us enjoying the experience. We experienced the local food culture, got a lot of information for the areas we were walking through and tasted amazing Japanese food. We were getting answers to all our questions and all our needs were addressed in best possible way. One of the top experiences we had in Tokyo/Japan.

We had a really nice time during this tour with our guide Bryan. The total experience was really fun. Even though not everyone loved ALL the dishes that were in the tour, it didn't matter, because every dish had its own story and each location that we visited was special. There were vegan and vegetartian and pescatarian options. I can highly recommend this tour.

The food tour of 3 neighborhoods sounded so fun! 18-20 tastings is what was listed and we got around 12-15 if you include the miso paste and sauces to add on the food. For the price, around $300/couple, the amount nor quality of food was not commensurate. If it would have been in the $50/pp price range would have made more sense. The tour guide was fantastic, though not as knowledgeable when it came to recommendations on things to do and places to eat in Tokyo. After the tour we were still very hungry and had to find a real dinner.

Fantastic tour! Highly recommend taking this. We enjoyed walking through the various areas, learning about the history of the city and of course the food. The size of the tour was just right. And we enjoyed the food so much we went to a few of the places on the days after our tour.
