What You Can Expect

Walking Food Tour in Yurakucho, Shimbashi and Ginza

Hidden Alleys of Tokyo

Meet your guide and group in the early evening in front of Outside Hankyu Men’s Department Store, located off the Yamanote Line at the Ginza stop exit. You’ll spend the next 3 hours eating and drinking 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. You’ll stop by a selection of local ‘izakayas’ (pubs) frequented by residents, where you’ll try out 5 different varieties of ‘yakitori’ and 2 drinks.

Head next to Tokyo’s upscale Ginza neighborhood, an area which 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’ll get a chance to take a deeper dive into some of Tokyo’s many rustic eateries and charming ‘izakayas.’ You’ll finish your excursion at Shimbashi Station.

We got so much out of this tour! If it's on your to eat list, you'll probably have at least a small portion on this tour. So much food, and then a full meal at the end! We learned so much all along the way.

Asami - Thank you for being a wonderful guide.

Great tour! Food was fantastic and the tour guide was awesome. I learned a lot about Japanese food by region and got to ask my stupid cultural questions with a forgiving and friendly guide.

Josh was a fantastic guide. He was informative and funny and gave us a lot of history and facts of Tokyo as well as the food and culture. The food stops were all fantastic and very diverse. A great tour to get to know the foods of Tokyo.

The great thing about food tours is that you visit local eateries that you wouldn't have dared/thought to enter on your own, and usually you're with a group of interesting like-minded people. This tour of Ginza, Shimbashi and Yurakucho was no exception. Ryan was an excellent guide who carried his expertise modestly and introduced us to Japanese customs and manners, as well as a range of fascinating and delicious food. By the end of it we were much more knowledgeable about Tokyo's food, and really well-fed. The experience was enhanced by the late-evening time slot and the lights of Ginza - brilliant in every way.
