WHAT TO EXPECT
Starting off in Yurakucho and ending in Shimbashi, your guide will show you the sights, sounds, and most importantly, tastes of Tokyo most tourists do not get to experience. Visit Gado Shita, a lively restaurant district built up under the brick arches beneath the elevated train tracks. Step into the narrow streets of the red lanterns and neon signs, so called yokocho alleys, where you can find yourself back in the 70s of Japan. In such exotic and retro ambience of the Showa period times, you’ll see local izakayas mostly frequented by locals. You’ll enjoy 2 Japanese Skewers, feshy caught sashimi, grilled beef and tamagoyaki (Japanese Egg roll). The second stop is Fish Cakes from the Kagoshima prefecture. Learn about this amazing local delicacy that locals really love. Continuing in Ginza, explore some very interesting food spots where you can find a $400 USD melon, and explore the amazing food floor in the B1 floor in an iconic department store. Discover some traditionally and beautifully arranged desserts in this “Depachika” and see the famous landmarks of Tokyo’s most expensive real estate area! Soon after we will go to a restaurant where we will sample 6 or more regional food from the south of Japan, Miyazaki. You will also get to experience some amazing seasonal dishes at this place. See how the new glamorous clashes with the rustic old once you set foot in Shimbashi, home to some of the most authentic local eateries and izakayas in Tokyo. Have the chance to dine with locals for an evening you’ll surely never forget.
