What you’ll do

We’re jealous of you already, because the food scene in Tokyo is, how do we say this… staggering? You will follow one of our friendly hosts (whilst wearing your stretchiest trousers) around the neighborhoods of Tokyo best known for their fresh produce markets, street food, ramen shops and sushi bars. Here you can sip cocktails forty stories up in the air, slurp down ramen noodles (it’s good manners, promise) nibble snacks at a six-seater bar or drink sake in historic yokocho (alleyways). You could spend your life on the never-ending search for that perfect bowl of ramen, but even with just a few hours your host can’t wait to share a sliver of what’s good with you! Bring an open mind, and be prepared to eat everything from convenience store fried chicken to sushi from a department store basement (local hack: this is actually where you can find some of the city’s best sushi), unusual ramen inside a train stations to yakitori (grilled chicken skewers) at impossibly small izakaya bars. What are you waiting for, all that food isn’t going to eat itself!

Street food tour in Tokyo

This was wonderful fun! Well worth the cost. Martin was an exceptional guide, whose English is perfect and his knowledge of food and customs in Japan was fascinating.

Best way to see Tokyo in a short time.

We had an excellent experience in Tokyo with Martina, combining a 6 Hour “hire a friend” experience with a 4 hour food tour. Martina made sure we attended an amazing cultural festival in the city combined with over the top street food. We would never have done this on our own. She helped me purchase a special knife as a gift at the old fish market. We navigated the metro city with ease with her help and we experienced Tokyo in ways we would never have been able to do on our own. I would do this again in Tokyo and other cities where City Unscripted operates.
