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 November 2014

Brilliant trip! Fully enjoyed ourselves. The group size was perfect and the food was excellent. Especially the meal at the end. I would 100% recommend and it didn't take all evening - finished at 9.30pm.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended October 2014

This tour was fabulous from the moment we met our guide Meg. She is so friendly and generous taking time to speak with everyone and explain and answer any questions we had. The places we went to we would never have found by ourselves and it gave us a great insight into Tokyo by night. The food tasting was of good quality and all of our group got on really well. The "sweet" part of our culinary feast was a laugh out loud experience with the stall holder trying to guess where we all came from, he loved to talk football!!
