Itinerary Details

Local food and drink tour in downtown Tokyo

When and Where we meet:
- We will meet at 4PM(It's a bit early for dinner but it's to avoid crowds.)
- Ueno Station, Central Exit, In front of Hard Rock Cafe

What we will do:
Take a walk through Ueno area and go to 2 or 3 local izakaya restaurants. (Izakaya is Japanese pub restaurants, where we can enjoy foods and drinks.) There, you can enjoy drinks and Japanese tapas and see many Japanese salarymans (office workers) who enjoy drinking after their work. During the tour we will walk along exciting Ameyoko shopping street where various products such as fresh fish, foods, clothes, and bags are sold. You can enjoy street foods if you like.
At the end of the tour, on your request, we will recommend you the next place.

Highlights:
The izakaya we pick up are the places only for local or very difficult for tourist to go by themselves. With us, you can enjoy local foods at local places.

About Ueno:
Ueno is an area that is enveloped by the rich downtown atmosphere of Tokyo. And it's easy access from a lot of major spots in Tokyo, as it's just a train ride away on the JR Yamanote Line if you’re coming from Shinjuku, Shibuya, and Akihabara.

Please note:
- Most of the places are smoking allowed.
- Please bring some cash for street foods and additional drinks. Credit cart may not be accepted.
