Eating Tokyo

street-scene_sqFor many, the idea of exploring Tokyo is daunting. The language and the complicated street address system make it seemingly impossible to unlock the city’s hidden gems.

Eating Tokyo has carefully curated an itinerary perfect for those interested in getting to the heart of the Tokyo food scene.

Let Janice and Sue take you on a culinary adventure in this vibrant city. From the back streets of Roppongi to Tsukiji market, the heart of Shinjuku to the alleyways of Asakusa, they will take you to some of their favourite finds.

Sample street food, explore Tsukiji Market and peruse the aisles of a famous department store food hall. Eat traditional udon noodles and the freshest sushi and sashimi. Dine at a specialist yakitori restaurant,  hard to find izakayas and a modern kaiseki restaurant.

The tour will be action packed including many memorable meals and food experiences, however there will be time in the afternoons for relaxing, exploring and shopping.

Each evening Janice and Sue will take you to a carefully selected restaurant or izakaya for dinner.
