ME and my wife met Hirotake Watanabe (our guide) and couple of other people that were in the same tour at the prespecified time and place. Already from the introduction it was clear that this would be a great tour with our guide that was open, fun, extremely knowledgeable and with a mission to have us enjoying the experience. We experienced the local food culture, got a lot of information for the areas we were walking through and tasted amazing Japanese food. We were getting answers to all our questions and all our needs were addressed in best possible way. One of the top experiences we had in Tokyo/Japan.

Yuko and her assistant were very helpful and thoughtful tour guides. We ate yummy food and learned a lot about Japanese culture. As an FYI- if you do not eat pork, this is probably not the best tour for you.

Fantastic tour! Highly recommend taking this. We enjoyed walking through the various areas, learning about the history of the city and of course the food. The size of the tour was just right. And we enjoyed the food so much we went to a few of the places on the days after our tour.

Our tour guide Ryan made this an excellent tour. His knowledge and personality, combined with the selection of restaurants we visited made one of the most memorable tours during our visit to Japan.

We got so much out of this tour! If it's on your to eat list, you'll probably have at least a small portion on this tour. So much food, and then a full meal at the end! We learned so much all along the way.

Asami - Thank you for being a wonderful guide.

We had a really nice time during this tour with our guide Bryan. The total experience was really fun. Even though not everyone loved ALL the dishes that were in the tour, it didn't matter, because every dish had its own story and each location that we visited was special. There were vegan and vegetartian and pescatarian options. I can highly recommend this tour.

The food tour of 3 neighborhoods sounded so fun! 18-20 tastings is what was listed and we got around 12-15 if you include the miso paste and sauces to add on the food. For the price, around $300/couple, the amount nor quality of food was not commensurate. If it would have been in the $50/pp price range would have made more sense. The tour guide was fantastic, though not as knowledgeable when it came to recommendations on things to do and places to eat in Tokyo. After the tour we were still very hungry and had to find a real dinner.
