You’ll eat your way around Tokyo, a central district that’s known for its inclusivity and crazy atmosphere. It also happens to be where chefs from all over Japan come to make a name for themselves, which means that there are more sushi joints here than spines on a sea urchin. With so many restaurants to choose try, from high-end boutique eateries to locals-only streetside vendors, a translator, aka your Japanese-speaking host, is essential! From ordering sashimi on an iPad and have it delivered by train at a conveyor belt sushi joint to heading underground to a depachika (department store basement food hall), your host will reveal the places where Tokyoites really grab their sushi - you’ll soon see there’s not an English menu in sight.
Seafood is considered art in Japan, and the sushi you’ll taste here is a far cry from the Western-style California rolls you’re used to. You’ll sample 8 unique types of sushi, expertly ordered by your host, at a variety of different sushi restaurants and shops. You could indulge in the aphrodisiacal sea urchin, slimy eel (a local favorite) and otoro tuna, the fattiest kind which is considered the ultimate delicacy. Taste specially-grown ingredients which are fused to create Kansai region classics like ehomaki, a full roll of shitake, egg and eel goodness that’ll whisk your tastebuds to an entirely new dimension and then sip on some Japanese tea, a palette cleanser, before it’s on to the next dish!
