Greet your guide at Yurakucho Station and embark upon your epicurean exploration of the city.

Next, venture to Monja Street to sample the local delicacy of monjayaki, a pan-fried pancake favored by locals. Learn about the snack’s interesting origin as you chat with your chef and listen to your pancake sizzling on the grill.

Continue to Ginza, a district thronged with confectionery shops, while learning about the rich variety of Japanese sweets.

Super Tasty food tour in Tokyo

In company of our guide Kinji, my brother and me had a nice walk through Toyko and test yummy yakitori and onomiyaki (asian style pizza). Very nice trip and worth the money (we eat quite a lot through the tour).
