Full description

Explore the alleys of Tokyo’s Shinbashi area, known for its rustic izakayas (pubs) and food stalls. Grab some of the most satisfying food on the planet as you discover the vibrant district after dark!

Start by entering the chasm of eateries overrun on a nightly basis by the working class of Japan. Join the thousands of businessmen who go to their favorite izakaya bar for a quick bite and cold beer before going home. Stop for some sashimi (raw fish), large gyoza (dumplings) and tamagoyaki (omelet), and then continue to a yakitori stall serving skewered meat and veggies cooked over an open fire.

Wind your way through the maze of izakayas to find one of the most hidden okonomiyaki (pancake) shops, where only the locals go. Savor an authentic okonomiyaki with a drink before heading back to Shinbashi Station for the end of the tour.
