Meeting Point

Outside Hankyu Men’s Department Store, by the bus stop across from JTB tourist information center.

Visit Gado Shita, a lively restaurant district built up under the brick arches beneath the elevated train tracks.

Step into the narrow streets of the red lanterns and neon signs, so called yokocho alleys, where you can find yourself back in the 70s of Japan. In such exotic and retro ambience of the Showa period times, you’ll see local izakaya mostly frequented by locals.

You’ll enjoy 2 food stops in this area that serve typical snacks/ starters enjoyed by local Japanese office workers and friends out for a night on the town.

Enjoy traditional starter- bar snacks in one spot, and discover the regional tastes of Ise in Mie Prefecture at another quaint and interesting location.

in Ginza, explore some very interesting food spots where you can find a $400 melon, and a famous Sembei (rice cracker) shop dating back from the early 1800’s! Taste for yourself the tradition and pride behind this tokyo historic spot– their secret recipes have been guarded carefully for over 200 years.

then wandering over to Shimbasi you can see how the glamorous ginza clashes with the rustic old Tokyo. Shimbashi is home to some of the most authentic local eateries and izakayas in Tokyo.

Ending Point

JR Shimbashi Station

Tour was outstanding

Our guide, Jennifer, was not only knowledgeable and personable, but she gave us unique insights into Japan, from the perspective of someone who has lived, worked and studied in both the US and Japan. She speaks perfect English (and I assume Japanese, since most people treat her as a native). She is articulate, uses helpful visual aids, and is not a clock watcher. After two weeks in country, Jennifer really helped us understand what we had experienced. Oh, by the way, the food was excellent. Jennifer is highly recommended.
