Tokyo Evening Local Gourmet Tour

Japanese cuisine is not only the refined sushi and tempura, but it has a wide range of equally delicious, more casual dishes that the locals love. Discover these delicacies with a local guide.

First, head to Yurakucho and mix with the “salarymen” (office workers) who relax with a beer and a grilled chicken skewer (“yakitori”) in the so-called yakitori alley. You will enjoy two yakitori of your liking and a drink in a typical yakitori establishment.

Hop on the underground and head to Tsukishima, a “shitamachi” (area with small businesses, diverse eateries and a casual atmosphere) neighborhood just across the river from Tsukiji market. You will see that many of the retro restaurants that line its street offer a dish called “monjayaki”. It is a tasty dish consisting of a flour and vegetables batter with different toppings cooked right on the table on a hot plate and eaten with small iron spatulas.

At the end of the dinner, your guide can drop you off at an izakaya (Japanese pub) in central Tokyo (you will then be on your own and all orders will be on you – the guide will explain how to go back to your hotel) or take you back to your hotel.
