What you'll do

Ditch the commotion of Tokyo’s well trodden tourist hubs and venture into the charismatic pockets of West Tokyo on a ‘no fuss’ walking and street food jaunt. Dive head first into the charming Tokyo neighbourhoods of Nakano and Koenji, as we explore the twisting alleyways, alternate subcultures and casual eateries that give these unique enclaves their distinctive character. Feast upon a tailored selection of everyday eats from local vendors, independent markets and Japanese franchises, as we walk the nostalgic 'shotengai', boisterous eating and drinking ‘yokocho’ and contrasting calm of the residential backstreets. Gain a detailed insight into life in the streets, as well as a new found confidence to take on Tokyo’s flourishing dining scene as a neighbourhood pro. Local eating and drinking hotspots, suggestions for offbeat neighbourhoods to explore, you’ll be equipped with it all as we cap off our outing over a drink at a quintessential ‘izakaya’. So, lace up your walking boots, come hungry and don't be shy about getting your hands dirty on this Tokyo walking and street food tour. Leave content, with a new appreciation of Tokyo life, local flavours and hopefully a few tips and tricks to squeeze that little bit extra out of this bewildering metropolis. *For dates and times not published or for private and family Tokyo tours, feel free to say hello.*

Where you'll be

NAKANO: Discover one of Tokyo’s most underrated neighbourhoods. Broadway with its jumble of ‘otaku’ centric retailers may be the primary drawcard but the real heart of Nakano lies in its backstreets teeming with boisterous ‘izakaya’. KOENJI: An infectious melting pot of subcultures, alt music, vintage clothing stores and a thriving bar scene. Branded as the birthplace of ‘Japanese punk music’, Koenji should be high on the list of any traveller.
