What you'll do
We will begin 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. 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. Monja-yaki is a type of Japanese pan-fried batter with various ingredients. You’ll use a small metal spatula for cutting it to pieces then chopsticks to eat with right from the grill. We 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! Your guide can also recommend other cool local bars in small alleys, or a karaoke place for more fun into the night.
Meg & Friends
Hello there! My name is Silvia. I am originally from Brazil, but I've been living and working in Tokyo for 12 years. Whenever my friends visit, I like to take them off the well-worn path trips to provide local insight and guidance. I love exploring Tokyo's ever-changing food culture. This is the best place to eat if you're a foodie! I live, work, travel and breathe Tokyo so I know the city like the back of my own hand, and I'm excited to show you the places you won't find on your own.
