We chose at short notice the tour of Yanaka - a quiet and tranquil district that was in strong contrast with the pace and vitality of much of the rest of the city. Yuma was very good at communicating with us and took our late arrival in his stride.

The walking was easy and the food delicious and varied (loved the tuna dish we ate and the Waugh croquette) and even discovered I can still sit cross legged even if getting up elegantly was beyond me.

Would heartily recommend.

I enjoyed the evening food tour with Yuma in Shinjuku. While all the included food was delicious, the final two stops were my personal favorites- a local izakaya spot specializing in chicken yakitori dishes and an okonomiyaki spot in residential Shinjuku. I’ve had okonomiyaki a bunch, but this place was really special and is a popular spot among locals.

In addition to food stops, we visited Kabukicho, Golden Gai, and Piss Alley, of which Yuma explained their quirky histories.

Beyond food, Yuma was able to answer our questions about Japanese culture as well.

Lots of food- don’t eat a heavy meal before the tour!

We did this in Febuary- I thought it was fantastic. We saw lots of Tokyo we wouldn't have seen alone, and our guide had really interesting information about Japanese society. He took us to some hole-in- the-wall restaurants that were fabulous. Overall, 10/10 for sure! I'd even repeat the same thing if we came back!

Had a fantastic tour from Yuma! He was knowledgeable and took us places we’d never have wandered into alone. He answered all of our questions and made sure we were well fed too. Afterwards, he even sent us great recommendations for the rest of our time in Tokyo.

We did the Ninja Food tour on our first night in Tokyo. It was a great way to start our trip as we got to see quite a bit of Shinjuku and had lots of yummy food stops! Our guide Rei was brilliant, spoke excellent English and was good fun. There were only 5 of us on the tour so it was relaxed, friendly and just felt like a nice night out with friends. The places we stopped at were all delicious and Rei was great and giving us lots of interesting stories and info about Japanese food culture. Shinjuku is a brilliant, but busy and crazy place so having some help to navigate the area was definitely a good decision...Would highly recommend this tour!
