What You Can Expect

Meet up with your guide at 4:20pm at Hachiko Square located by the famous Shibuya Crossing intersection. Though this famous Tokyo area is mostly known as a hub of Japanese culture and fashion, you’ll soon discover it has an equally famous reputation among locals for its food.

Skip the overpriced touristy restaurants and instead follow your guide on foot to Shibuya eateries hidden in the ward’s back alleys frequented by Tokyo locals.

As you explore and snack, you’ll get the chance to try Japanese favorites like Kobe Beef or Wagyu beef ‘yakitori’ (barbecue) skewers, Osaka-style takoyaki, Hiroshima-style okonomiyaki, several  kinds of sushi, and even some taiyaki dessert to finish up. You'll even get to check out a depachika, a typical Japanese underground food hall hosted in the basement of one of the country's many department stores. One included alcoholic beverage will help you wash down your various snacks.

You’ll end your trip back at your original starting point with a full stomach and a newfound knowledge of Japan’s insider food culture.
