Overview

Get a taste of Japanese food and culture during this half-day walking tour of Tokyo’s Shibuya district. Escape the tourist hordes as you eat like a Japanese local, sampling favorites like takoyaki (octopus balls), okonomiyaki (savory egg pancakes), Kobe beef skewers, and more in the area’s off-the-beaten path eateries and hangouts. Toast your adventure, and new friends, with an included glass of beer, shochu (rice liquor), or soft drink.

What to Expect

One of the best ways to experience a new city is to eat your way around it. This walking food tour of Shibuya is a foodie’s dream. You’ll meet your guide at a pre-arranged spot near Shibuya station before escaping the usual tourist hot spots. You’ll avoid overpriced restaurants and instead go to the side street haunts that locals love.

As you hop between eateries, try all sorts of local favorites, such as takoyaki (octopus balls), Wagyu beef yakitori skewers, okonomiyaki (Japanese pancake), and lots of sushi. You’ll wash the delicious food down with shochu (rice liquor) and Japanese beer. For those with a sweet tooth, there’s also dessert to try too.

As well as the side streets, you’ll get to see a depachika (underground food hall)—another local favorite. This is a superb way to get a glimpse of Tokyo’s food culture from a local's perspective.
