What You Can Expect

Tokyo by Night: Japanese Food Tour

Tokyo by Night: Japanese Food Tour

Meet your local guide at Yurakucho Station's Central Exit in the evening to begin your tour of Tokyo’s bustling nighttime food scene. You'll walk from place to place and also take public transport. All tastings and one drink (beer or sake) are included, so indulge!

You’ll feel like a local as you stroll through the city and visit several popular eateries, starting in Yakitori Alley near Yurakucho. This area is full of casual bar-style restaurants that serve up appetizers such as yakitori (grilled chicken skewers). Dip this happy-hour staple in house-made sauces, and wash the snacks down with sake or beer.

Next, head to Tsukishima to visit Monja Street for monjayaki, a pan-fried treat that's similar to an Osaka-style okonomiyaki pancake. Chat with your cook as your snack sizzles on the grill, then use a small metal spatula to cut it into pieces and pluck it right from the grates with chopsticks.

Finish your food tastings with a sweet treat of taiyaki, a popular crispy cake stuffed with sweetened red beans.

End your tour at a local pub for some more drinks (own expense), where you’re welcome to stay or return to the starting point with your guide. Your guide can also recommend other cool, off-the-grid local bars or lively karaoke joints to continue the fun.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended December 2014

Out tour guide Elina Kodera was very good - good English, accommodating, patient and knowledgeable. She was eager to answer our questions. Our family enjoyed her company and even provided additional information for some location directions we asked. The restaurants we went to were ok - good portions and good tasting. We had fun!

A lot of fun and good food. Great way to eat in some local places you would not find in your own. Loved our guide Elina
