You could try unusual varieties of ramen infused with yuzu (a citrus fruits) and learn local hacks like buying sushi in department store basements and feel smug knowing that you’ve tasted the real Tokyo - not the tourist version. Your host will introduce you to unique street foods like dango - a rice flour dumpling that’s covered with sweet soy sauce - or surprisingly delicious konbini supermarket fried chicken. In Yokocho, your host will effortlessly order with the eye of an expert - it helps to have a local around when you don’t speak Japanese! It won’t be long before plates of grilled gyoza, fatty tuna sashimi and hiyayakko (silken tofu with soy and ginger) appear, and you’re cheering “kampai!” with the locals over regional sake.
From 8-seater sushi shops to ramshackle izakaya bars squeezed into lantern-lit alleyways, gleaming depachika - expansive food halls in the basements of luxurious department stores - to no-frills standing bars called tachinomiya, you’ll only visit the places where locals really eat. You could eat your way around neon-lit Shibuya, a central district known as a food hub for regional flavors from across Japan. But between the sleek stores is Yokocho, a kaleidoscope of neon lights, red lanterns and retro izakaya bars, all crammed into a tiny alleyway that’s overflowing noisy locals and more dishes than you knew existed.
