This is a typical itinerary for this productStop At:
Yurakucho Yokocho, Unnamed Road 2 Chome-4, ２丁目-４ 有楽町 千代田区 東京都 100-0006, Japan
We’ll begin our tour in Yakitori Alley, near Yurakucho, an area with many casual bar-style restaurants and the birthplace of yakitori, one of many Japanese people’s favourite appetizers. As many businessmen and women do after 5pm, we’ll enjoy a drink of sake or a local beer, then sample yakitori at one of the many local restaurants, each with their own “tare” (sauce) mixed with their secret ingredients.
Duration: 1 hour 15 minutesStop At:
Tsukishima Monja Street, 1 Chome-9 Tsukishima, Chuo City, Tokyo 104-0052, Japan
After having a drink to go with the yakitori, we’ll travel to Tsukishima to visit “Monja” Street, where “Monja-Yaki” is said to have originated. Often compared with Okonomi-yaki in Osaka, Monja-yaki is a type of Japanese pan-fried batter with various ingredients. The ingredients are finely chopped and mixed into the batter before grilling. You’ll have the chance to watch your food being cooked, chat with the cook, and devour your Monja-yaki fresh from the hot plate. In true local style, you’ll use a small metal spatula for cutting it to pieces then chopsticks to eat with right from the grill.
Duration: 1 hour 15 minutesStop At:
Ginza, Chuo 104-0061 Tokyo Prefecture
We’ll take a quick stroll through Ginza, where you can find great confectionery shops and learn about the rich variety of traditional Japanese sweets — and, best of all, choose one to try! Usually made of rice and red beans, these sweets change based on the ingredients available at each time of year, and even their shapes are inspired by what you can find in nature during that season.
Your tour ends here but don’t forget to ask for tips on what else to see do and eat during your stay. Fancy a cool local bar or a karaoke place- We’d be happy to recommend our favourites so that your night can continue. Equally, your guide can help with directions back to your accommodation or you can return to the start point with them.
