What to Expect
In this 2.5-hour tour, explore the endless rows and alleys, twists and turns of Shimbashi. Known for its rustic izakayas and abundant food stalls, let this tour help cut through the noise to find some of the most remote places to grab some of the most satisfying food on the planet.

Starting outside Shimbashi Station at 5pm, begin your tour by entering the chasm of eateries overrun on a nightly basis by the working class of Japan. You are instantly surrounded by thousands of businessmen descending upon their favorite izakaya bar to grab a quick bite and cold beer before taking the long train ride home.

Not far into your journey, stop for some sashimi, large gyoza, tamagoyaki and more. You will have a choice of 2 dishes and 1 drink. 

Your second stop is a yakitori stall, serving skewered meat and veggies cooked over an open fire. You are in and out here to get a sense of what fast moving businessmen experience day to day.

Once you are finished with your yakitori, continue to wind your way through the maze of izakayas to find one of the most hidden okonomiyaki shops in Shimbashi. Only local Japanese ever go here but this tour allows you to sample their offerings. You will get 1 okonomiyaki (Japanese grilled egg, meat and veggie pancake) and a drink. Taking your time at the last spot and once you've had your fill, end the tour back at Shimbashi Station to head safely home.
