Great food tour with a very helpful and attentive guide Silvia. Strongly recommend to anyone wanting a quick introduction to Japanse cuisine, other than such that is.

Highly recommend it. It allowed us to explore food and where we would normally not try. The Guide Kazu was excellent.

One of the best times we had on our trip to Japan. Our guide was charming and spoke great English, and she took us to great back-street restaurants and shops we would never have found on our own. We lucked out with a fabulous bunch of people, too! The guide talked very knowledgeably about the foods, the drinks, the neighborhood. Since we eat Japanese food at home, we didn't expect may surprises. We got quite a few. Tremendous fun.

Perfect tour! The guide was very sweet, and took us to all sorts of nooks we would have never dared tried (or even knew to ask about!). She was full of energy, and explained non-foodie things to us as well. It was like checking out Tokyo with a friend. My mom and I had a great time.

The food tour was excellent and allowed us to visit and experience places we would never have visited. Ikumi emailed us after the tour providing details of where we had visited and what we tasted. Would really recommend.

This was so much fun! Really helped me understand Japanese ways of cooking since I had difficulties due to the language barrier. Went to places I would never have found and tried foods I otherwise would not have had a chance to experience. I always love food tours and this one was fantastic!
