Explore the streets of Shibuya on this 3 hour food tour. Experience a part of Shibuya that no one ever sees and the most delicious food most non-Japanese never get to taste. Nestled in the back alleys above the streets these places are unforgettable!
What to Expect
In this 3-hour tour your guide will show you the delicious side of Shibuya which is a place more known for being at the forefront of culture and fashion, and rarely known for its food. Most people get caught up in the lights and sounds of Shibuya which often lead you astray to commercialized restaurants with cheap introductory prices that charge you for compulsory add-ons no on really wants.
Starting in Shibuya Station your guide gives you a chance to take a few pictures of the surrounding area before moving along to the first stop. An almost forgotten place deep underneath the train tracks where guests can grill their own meat and have some traditional soup and oden (in winter). The first stop comes with one drink and you can choose from beer, umeshu (plum wine), tea or soft drink.
After you are done, head out through the heart of the action giving guests a chance to see the seemingly endless ocean of neon lights. Head up through the central shotengai (shopping street) weaving in and out of alleys and streets to see the hustle and bustle of the area. Once the lights begin to seem so bright you will be nearing the end of the commercialized area and take a few back, dimly lit streets to a locally owned Hiroshima inspired eatery.
Here you will be able to sit up close and personal with the cooks as they make the most delicious Hiroshima Oknomiyaki. Delicious with every bite you can have vegetarian, seafood or meat stuffed versions all big enough to satisfy the most intense hunger. Each meal comes with a free drink including beer, shochu, lemon sour, high ball, soft drink, tea or water.
After you finish you will head back to the glitz and glam for some dessert and then to the crossing to get a few shots when the lights are brightest before saying good night.
