What you'll do
We will explore the greater part of Shinjuku, the busiest area in Tokyo to show you popular spots as well as hidden gems. We'll have a couple of bites during the city walk. We'll then head to two izakaya restaurants that are popular among the locals. Places we visit range from modern to traditional, and if you are looking to try just ramen and sushi, this might not be the right one for you. Throughout the evening, we’ll taste different Japanese foods and drinks, learn about our pub food culture and history, and spend time with other foodies.
I’m a certified sake sommelier and a restaurant owner in Tokyo. I also started Ninja Food Tours, a boutique food tour company based in Tokyo, Kyoto, & Osaka. As a Tokyo local and foodie, my team and I spend a lot of time trying hundreds of restaurants across Tokyo to discover something new. The team (Yuma, Giulia, Nathan, Amanda or Kaz) will show you our neighborhood, Shinjuku, in an informative and fun way.
Dinner I'll provide full-size dinner samplings. No extra cost.
Drinks I'll provide two drinks, such as soft drinks, sake, beer, or whiskey.
