Tokyo After 5: Japanese Culinary Adventure Tour

Tokyo After 5: Japanese Culinary Adventure Tour

Tokyo’s vibrant food culture is legendary, and is one of the many reasons why people flock to the Japanese capital. On this 3.5-hour Tokyo tour you’ll join a local guide to dive into the city’s food scene, tasting some of the city’s best dishes. Get a truly local perspective as your local guide explains the history of the food you’re tasting and the places you visit, sharing personal experiences and food related family traditions and customs during the tour. We’ll begin our tour taking a quick stroll through Depachika, the food section at the basement of the department store, where you can find a wide variety of dishes, from slightly upscale delicacies for when you have guests over, to those that are usually used as side dishes. A great variety of foods, confectionery shops and learn about the rich variety of traditional Japanese sweets (Wagashi) — and, best of all, choose one of Wagashi to try! Usually made of rice and red beans, these sweets change based on the ingredients available at each time of year, and even their shapes are inspired by what you can find in nature during that season. Travel to Tsukishima to visit “Monja” Street, where “Monja-Yaki” is said to have originated, a type of Japanese pan-fried batter with various ingredients. You’ll have the chance to watch your food being cooked, chat with the cook, and devour your Monja-yaki fresh from the hot plate.  After having Monja, we’ll travel back to Ginza by metro and head for Yakitori Alley, an area with many casual bar-style restaurants and the birthplace of yakitori, one of many Japanese people’s favourite appetisers. As many businessmen and women do after 5pm, we’ll enjoy a drink of sake or a local beer, then sample yakitori at one of the many local restaurants, each with their own “tare” (sauce) mixed with their secret ingredients. Your tour ends here but don’t forget to ask for tips on what else to see, do and eat during your stay. Fancy a cool local bar or a karaoke place? We’d be happy to recommend our favourites so that your night can continue.
