Start your tour by walking through the busy streets of Shinjuku heading straight for Omoide Yokocho (literally “Memory Lane”) as our first stop. Omoide Yokocho is rightfully named as it is littered with rustic bars from the 1950s. Anyone of the older generation will feel as if they stepped back in time to the middle of the 20th century. Many of these bars still stay true to their roots, serving roasted giblets with beef and pork, which was a staple when food was scarce after World War II. We will have a drink and some skewers in one of the most charming parts of Tokyo; it will give you a very authentic feeling of Japan as you dine mostly with locals.
We have a strict policy about starting our tours on time. This is to protect the enjoyment of all our guests and restaurant partners. We are sorry to say that if you are not able to arrive at the meeting point by the departure time, the tour will start regardless and no refund will be provided. We are also unable to accommodate meeting up in any of the food stops once you’ve missed the start of the tour.
The tours run on a pre-determined schedule and the participant is responsible for keeping up with the tour. We are not responsible for a participant’s physical condition or choice of attire that may affect his ability to keep up. We may walk about 2 or more kilometers. There are no free participants (except children under 2 years old) or participants that do not eat and simply accompany a participant. We must abide by this condition to ensure that everyone’s experience is respected. We will try our best to make sure guests with dietary concerns and restrictions are able to enjoy our tours as well.
