DESCRIPTION

Loosen your belt buckle and join me on a no fuss walking and street food tour in my hometown, West Tokyo.

 

Dive head first into the eclectic neighbourhoods of Nakano and Koenji, as we stop by my favourite haunts to grab a bite to eat in these buzzing local eating, drinking and entertainment hubs.

 

Take joy in sampling a wide array of popular eats from local vendors, independent markets and Japanese franchises as we wind our way through the rustic streets and never-ending 'shotengai'. When it comes to good food, I don't discriminate on the source!

 

With the insider knowledge of a seasoned local, nothing's off limits as we fill our stomachs and explore the urban landscapes, dingy backstreets, neighbourhood attractions and mouthwatering cuisine that gives these culturally rich enclaves their distinctive character.

 

Come hungry and don't be shy about getting your hands dirty on this all inclusive Tokyo street food jaunt.

 

Leave content, with a new appreciation of local flavours, Japanese eating etiquette and an eye-opening introduction to two of my favourite Tokyo neighbourhoods.

AIRBNB EXPERIENCES

"Andy really strikes a perfect balance between a relaxing experience and something educational. You'll get a lot out of the 2 hours - both from a culinary standpoint and an understanding of Japanese culture, but you won't feel rushed or hassled in doing it. The tour's location will really add to your Tokyo experience. While it's pretty easy to find tourism experiences in locations that are traditionally considered more tourist-y (like in Ginza or Harajuku), it's hard to find experiences like this for Nakano ( "Tokyo's most underrated neighborhood" according to GQ) and Koenji ("Tokyo's coolest neighborhood" according to the Guardian). Likewise, if you enjoy experiencing new foods - you're in real luck. You'll have the opportunity to sample foods that are popular in japan but that you probably haven't heard of outside the country."

TRIPADVISOR

"We had a fantastic two hours with Andy exploring Nakano and Koenji. We stopped at a variety of places to try delicious things (things we had been wanting to try but weren't sure what they were!) He pointed out interesting points and shops and gave us info we could use during the rest of our trip. We have done a lot of food tours around the world and this was among our favourites - definitely recommend taking this tour to explore an area you wouldn't otherwise see with a great guy!"

This was a fantastic experience from start to finish. We had the opportunity to try all different types of food from some very unique place I otherwise wouldnt have known about. Andy is super knowlegable about the foods and the area making the experience a pleasure, not to mention he is a very friendly guide! I also got some great photos throughout the experience from some super unique back streets. Overall a great experience for the food lover!
