We will explore the greater part of Shinjuku, the busiest area in Tokyo to show you popular spots as well as hidden gems. We'll have a couple of bites during the city walk. We'll then head to two izakaya restaurants that are popular among the locals. Places we visit range from modern to traditional, and if you are looking to try just ramen and sushi, this might not be the right one for you. Throughout the evening, we’ll taste different Japanese foods and drinks, learn about our pub food culture and history, and spend time with other foodies. Also, we offer an optional sake tasting session where we will try 5+ different craft & seasonal sake at our own sake bar in Shinjuku before the tour at 3:30pm (optional & price not included).Other things to noteWe will walk a lot! Wear comfortable shoes and come hungry. Let me know if you have food restrictions beforehand. Also, the maximum number of guest is 10, including people from other platforms.
A snack platter to taste and experience how sake compliments a wide range of food. It is not a meal so having lunch before the session is recommended.
Including 3 drinks at each sit-down restaurant, we visit during the tour. Options would be Japanese beer, sake, shochu, and other unique drinks that represent the Japanese Izakaya culture.
Host: Yuma & Team
I’m a licensed sake sommelier and a new wave sake bar owner in Tokyo. I also founded Ninja Food Tours, a gourmet food tour company featured by multiple media (e.g. CNN). While I have a deep appreciation of traditional sake culture, I also love to experiment new things with sake. That is what I do with my professional sommelier team on a daily basis. Rie, Giulia, and I will share a deep world of sake in my sake bar.
