Explore Local Food and Drinks in Shinjuku
From US$76.67
Eat your way through the fun Shinjuku neighborhood with this small group food tour. You'll get to visit a total of three izakaya restaurants popular with locals where you'll get to try all sorts of local specialties, from raw fish to chicken skewers to takoyaki, all served with local beverages.
What to Expect
How tasty, cheap and deep! In Shinjuku, Omoide Yokocho and Golden Gai are fantastic places in which good old Japanese humanity and feelings are still alive. They are popular amongst the locals as a place to enjoy cheap and delicious food.
You can encounter amazing scenes If should step into the narrow alleys that almost all of travelers tend to overlook. The streets are full of lights of lanterns and savory smells of grilled chicken for the cause of many Izakayas. That's the nostalgic atmosphere casts a spell over you. And you feel as if you had been transported through time to the Showa period (about 50 years ago in Japan).
With our tour, the friendly host, who are familiar with Japanese culture and fluent in English supports you truly enjoy the experience. In 3 hours, the host guides you two kinds of Japanese Izakayas. So you can understand it more deeply.
Get a chance to try a unique local food like roast giblets and taste regional drinks like highball that are only available in Japan. The bars are so small that you can get along well from the very beginning with near people who have different culture.
Let's have exciting and special experience in Shinjuku!

Good food at kabokicho

We had so much fun talk with our tour leader, Moena, about shinjuku and living in japan. We had Takayuki and kishikatsu at a popular restaurant. Nice evening!

Good times in Shinjuku

Got to experience the Shinjuku area, tried great local restaurant and made Takoyaki. We tried the beta version of the tour so it wasn't as in depth, but it's still worth it if you're just visiting.
