You want to experience Izakaya like locals? Are you a little reluctant to drink in Shinjuku Kabukicho or the youth town of Shibuya? If so, I recommend Ginza, Yurakucho area! The area has some different profiles. There are deep izakaya alleys underneath the JR railways that retain a postwar atmosphere and also high-end streets where the district became first westernized after the Edo period. You can enjoy 2 very different types of drinking spots while touching about the history.

I will take you to the outer market of Tsukiji including its new fish retail area where you can see a lot of sea food. There are many food shops but popular ones are over crowded with long lines. If you want to have a good sushi without waiting a long time, we should have early sushi lunch before 11AM (sushi lunch from 3,000 JPY). So please have a light breakfast before the tour.
