Aya-san thank you!

We were lucky to have a private tour with Aya-san and she gave us lots of really interesting information, not just about the food we ate but some history and fun facts we would never have known. Really friendly and showed a genuine interest too, so it felt like having dinner with a friend. Would easily recommend this tour, plus the food was delicious!!

Firts I want to thank our tour guide Yuko. She was great, really fun to be around. Easy to chat with as we made our way around.

We went to restaurants where locals actually go to eat. Along the way we also visited a few historic and trendy locations like Ginza SIX.

Overall an easy tour to jusy relax and sample local dishes (don't forget to try some sake).

I have done a few of these food tours and Yuko was the best guide that I have had. She shared a lot of history of the areas and was a great cook at the last restaurant! I would recommend this tour for your next visit to Tokyo!
Great way to explore different Japanese foods!

I really enjoyed the Tokyo by Night: Japanese Food Tour!
Snoopy, our tour guide was very informative and provided a little background on the areas we were visiting. I especially enjoyed making our own food at the last stop, being interactive with new friends made the night fun! I would definitely recommend this tour to first time visitors to Tokyo as well as second time visitors like myself! There’s always something new and tasty to discover in Tokyo!
Nice Tour, thanks Kiri!

We went on this tour to experience some restaurants we would not have ventured into on our own like the self cook Teppanyaki, it was great fun and food was delicious. Our host Kiri spoke good English and was very accommodating.
