  • Shinjuku: Golden Gai Food Tour

    1. Shinjuku: Golden Gai Food Tour

    Start your tour by walking through the busy streets of Shinjuku heading straight for Omoide Yokocho (literally “Memory Lane”) as your first stop. Omoide Yokocho is rightfully named as it is littered with rustic bars from the 1950s. Anyone of the older generation will feel as if they stepped back in time to the middle of the 20th century. Many of these bars still stay true to their roots, serving roasted giblets with beef and pork, which was a staple when food was scarce after World War II. From there you will make your way to Kabukicho, Asia’s largest, yet safest, red light district stopping at a kushikatsu stall for some authentic regional cuisine called kushikatsu (specialty food from Osaka of deep-fried skewered meat and vegetables). Each of the guests will get 4 kushikatsu and 1 drink. From here you will walk through the rest of Kabukicho, weaving in and out to give guests a sense o...

    The food and history lessons were great! The guide was very knowledgeable and personable. Only wish it had been easier to find the guide outside the station, but overall great experience!

What people are saying about Shinjuku City

Kaz is a great guide! It was such a pleasure to spend time with him and the rest of the group (we fell in love with our South African family). We were in two different izakayas were we had plenty of delicious food and booze. Afterwards we strolled around Shinjuku were we stopped by at different kinds of snack bars. Kaz also showed us the fascinating micro bar district of Shinjuku. The tour ended with the popular Japanese Matcha ice cream. Thank you for this tasty and sociable experience.

We had a perfect day with our guide Patrick. We biked all over Tokyo and visited tourist sites, quiet neighbourhoods and a water throwing festival. During the day we tried differet kind of food like onigiri from the basement of a shopping center for breakfast, takoyaki kushiyaki at the festival and the most amazing ochazuke from a small restaurant in a quiet street. Patrick was an fantastic guide and the idea to bike around was amazing.

Michael is a super cool guy who was fun to chat with. He was very knowledgeable in his choice of cuisines and super flexible with our preferences. We visited several local places that were not touristy. We even visited a shrine. He also took great photos and had good suggestions for vegetarian Ramen that we tried the next day—totally worth our trek! Thanks, made for a great first night in Tokyo!

My tour guide was Patrick. I can only recommend him to everyone, he knows Tokyo very well and was able to show me many places that I would never have found on my own. The food, drink and the trip through the alleys - everything was just awesome!
