Description:

Ditch the commotion of Tokyo’s well trodden tourist hubs and venture into the charismatic pockets of West Tokyo on a ‘no fuss’ walking and street food jaunt.

Dive head first into the Tokyo neighbourhoods of Nakano and Koenji, as we explore the twisting alleyways, alternate subcultures and casual eateries that give these enclaves their distinctive character.

Feast upon a selection of eats from local vendors, independent markets and Japanese franchises, as we walk the nostalgic 'shotengai', boisterous ‘yokocho’ and contrasting calm of the residential backstreets.

Gain an insight into life in the streets, as well as the confidence to take on Tokyo’s dining scene as a neighbourhood pro. Local eating and drinking hotspots, suggestions for offbeat neighbourhoods to explore, you’ll be equipped with it all as we cap off our outing over a drink at a quintessential ‘izakaya’.

So, lace up your walking boots, come hungry and don't be shy about getting your hands dirty on this Tokyo walking and street food tour.

Leave content, with a new appreciation of Tokyo life, local flavours and hopefully a few tips and tricks to squeeze that little bit extra out of this bewildering metropolis.

Thoroughly enjoyed the tour with Andy. Living in the west Tokyo area Andy is just the person to show you a few of the local food delights as well as give you a real view of what and where people from the area like to eat and come together. The tour takes you through areas that aren’t big touristy locations. Andy also takes you to his market where you can check out the local food people like to cook with. Andy is a great guide. Friendly and knowledgeable on so many things Japan, good communicator and willing to try to cater to all. Can’t recommend him enough. Oh and we met a couple who had done the tour before us and they were back eating at the eating stops again! That’s gotta be proof of value! Thanks Andy
