Description
Experience Tokyo’s bustling culinary back streets and try several delicious Japanese foods: sushi, yakitori (skewers), as well as classic RAMEN! (on everyone’s MUST TRY LIST). 

Start by walking through Omoide Yokocho. Filled with rustic food stalls and bars from the 1950s, you will feel as if you stepped back in time to the middle of the 20th century. We will have a drink together and some skewers in one of the most charming parts of Tokyo; giving you a very authentic feeling of Japan as you dine with locals. 

Then we will make our way to Kabukicho, Asia’s largest yet safest, red-light district. Learn more about this famous area as your guide explains Japanese izakaya culture, the amazing world of karaoke bars and the famous Robot restaurant, as well as other hidden gems. You will enjoy Ramen before we head to a local sushi restaurant. We will end our tour with a ramble through the back drinking alleys at Golden Gai (Tokyo’s most popular spot for unique tiny bars, and pub-nightlife).
