Fantastic intro to Harajuku and Omotesando with lots of tasty treats along the way. This was the second Arigato tour we did on our Japan holiday and we would highly recommend them. The giant rainbow candy floss in Harajuku was a definite highlight for our 10 year old and made for wonderful photos!

Fun and Tasty Food Tour with Excellent Guide
We had the best tour guide, Norma, to show us all the fun food we have missed since we moved here 2 years ago. We started with a candy store making beautiful lollipops and hard candy. Next, we visited a sesame ice cream shop. We had the sampler and each picked our favorite. After that we went through the backstreets to a cute art exhibition hall that has an amazing make your own okonomiyaki and yakisoba grill right in the middle of your table. Our 11 year old son and 18 yo niece loved it! Although full, we went to the animal ice cream store for the kids and then a creperie for the adults. Delicious! The final stop was Totti for the instagram worthy cotton candy. A fun and delicious day! Thanks so much to Norma.

Kawaii Food Tour for a Kawaii Honeymoon Situation.
Michie & Norma. These ladies were AMAZING tour guides on our trek to the most “kawaii” situation you will ever be put in! Even before meeting up with them, ARIGATO TOUR co reached out to me and made sure my nut allergy was accommodated. I felt taken care of from the start. Me and my husband got to enjoy pastel colored ice cream, get a run down of the history behind some of the architecture, and got the opportunity to meet some local artists. For lunch, we had a “family style” meal consisting of yakisoba and okonomiyaki where we learned basic etiquette and phrases around consuming a meal. We ended our tour being taken to a cute picture booth space and my husbands face never looked more glamourous lol! I highly recommend this food tour. We had a experience that will forever be a highlight on our honeymoon trip!

Amazing Family Friendly Tour of Harajuku!
Oct 2019
The food and our guide (Ryan) was amazing and really enriched our visit to Tokyo by showing us delicious sweets and ice cream our 2 young boys were crazy about. I loved how this was a great pace for families and there was no rush to get anywhere, as all the eateries were within a 5-minute walk from one another. We got to experience and taste Harajuku's unique sweets and treats and also got shown a delicious place where you could cook your own Okonomiyaki. Soooooo good! Ryan was so knowledgeable and passionate about both food and the city. We learnt so much from him and got a ton of food recommendations. Thanks so much, Ryan!

We are grateful for your review and SO GLAD your family had fun with us in Harajuku. Many families go there on their own which is fun of course, but our goal is to uncover hidden gems and fun family friendly activities. We also LOVE to share other recommendations with our new tour guest friends on each and every tour!

Take this tour if you want to eat like a local!
Jul 2019 • Family
We took the walking tour on a Monday in July. What a wonderful experience we had with our guides - Satoshi and Yuko.
We had a group of 9 with 4 adults and kids ranging from 7-12. So it was sort of a private tour in a sense. Overall the walking distance was just right - of course, stops with food treats were perfectly scheduled. We never felt too tired with the walk.
We had a good look of the local treats - YUMMY sesame ice cream, yes rich black and white sesame....i never knew you could make ice cream out of this - oh I can't say enough about it. You have to try it.
There was also a lunch with Okonomiyaki, crepes and nice walk down Harajuku.
Our guides were super helpful in explaining to us the lifestyle of the Japanese culture and we definitely felt like we are eating like the locals.
We highly recommend this tour. You will have so much appreciation of the local foods and surrounding when you go with the great tour guides from Arigato Japan.
Thank you Satoshi and Yuko!
