What we’ll do

I will take you to two or three local Izakaya (Japanese pub) in Shinjuku area. You will basically enjoy Japanese food matches with traditional drinks.

Where you'll be

We will start the tour at a local Izakaya with super fresh fish. You won’t easily find this place on the Internet and I am sure you will enjoy the quality of foods and drinks, and its price. Then we walk to the next Izakaya for Yakitori. Both of them serve a variety of Sake so I will help you to find your most favorite one. They have very strict rules on reservation but I will make it in advance for you.
