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.

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!

The guide, Tim, was energetic and knowledgeable. The variety of the food was wonderful and it was all very delicious. I appreciate Tim's flexibility in letting the group stop for a drink in Drunkard's Alley since we were walking through. I also appreciated the local stories about some of the culture in the area, in addition to the food.

We had a wonderful time on this tour. Guide was very friendly and not only told us about the food but answered lots of questions about living in Tokyo. We came away with full stomachs and brains. Highly recommend this tour to introduce yourself to the food scene in Tokyo. Shibuya is a very neat area...very busy.
