What You Can Expect

Walking Food Tour of Shibuya at Night

Explore Shibuya by night

Get together with your guide in the early evening in Shibuya's Hachiko Square. You’ll spend the next 3 hours getting a locals-only taste of Tokyo’s hidden food scene.

Skip the overpriced tourist eateries and instead follow your guide inside some of Shibuya’s wealth of side-street restaurants favored by Tokyo residents. As you hop between food stops you’ll sample a variety of Japanese delicacies from across the country, including Hiroshima-style okonomiyaki, Osaka-style takoyaki, seven different kinds of sushi, Wagyu Beef or Kobe beef ‘yakitori’ (barbecue) skewers, and even some taiyaki dessert. You’ll even get to wander through the labyrinth of food items for sale at a “depachika” (underground food hall). One included beverage will help you wash it all down.

Finish your food exploration back at your original starting point with a full stomach and a newfound appreciation for Japan’s one-of-a-kind gastronomic culture.

An excellent way to dive into the local food and entertainment culture. We would never have experienced these various foods and places around town without Kate, our guide. Sooo much better than the other tours we booked while visiting Tokyo. Very personal, very informative. HIGHLY recommend

We booked this tour to experience the Shibuya neighborhood, and Kate fully delivered. Not only did we eat delicious food, but she gave history of the neighborhood and cultural highlights as well. Kate was joined by Carole, whom she was training, and they both were very knowledgeable and fun. We definitely felt we got more than our money's worth with the experience they gave us. Kate also gave very helpful recommendations for after the conclusion of the tour. Thanks again Kate!Stephanie and Brian

We enjoyed this tour so much that my husband booked the same tour a couple months later when his friends were in town visiting. The guide was knowledgable and took us to the best spots around Shibuya.

Had a great time on this tour. It covers a fairly small area but isn't short on food!

I had a lot of fun on this tour and the food was wonderful! If I ever return to Tokyo I hope to do a few more tours like this--they really added color to my experience. It was also great, as a solo traveler, to be able to get out and socialize.

This was a highlight of our trip to Japan. Asumi sorry I am probably mis-spelling that! was an amazing tour guide. We learned a lot about Japanese culture and food and went to places we have never gone to that served us some of the best food we had in Japan. I highly recommend this food tour!
