While commonly referring to skewered grilled chicken, the term 'yakitori' can also refer to skewered food in general.

Description

Tokyo's vibrant food culture is legendary, and is one of the many reasons why people flock to the Japanese capital. On this Tokyo tour enjoy the food culture of Tokyo from an ordinary salaryman's perspective, as well as the tradition of foods in everyday life of Tokyo. Throughout your Tokyo food tour, your local guide will explain the history of food and places you visit, sharing with you his own personal experiences and food-related family traditions and customs during the tour.  

We'll begin our tour in Yakitori Alley, near Yurakucho, an area with many casual bar-style restaurants and the birthplace of yakitori, one of many Japanese people's favorite appetizers. As many businessmen and women do after work, we'll enjoy a drink of sake or a local beer, then sample yakitori at one of the many local restaurants, each with their own "tare" (sauce) mixed with their secret ingredients.

After having a drink to go with the yakitori, travel to Tsukishima to visit "Monja" Street, where "Monja-Yaki" is said to have originated. Often compared with Okonomi-yaki in Osaka, Monja-yaki is a type of Japanese pan-fried batter with various ingredients. The ingredients are finely chopped and mixed into the batter before grilling. Have the chance to watch your food being cooked, chat with the cook, and devour your Monja-yaki fresh from the hot plate. In true local style, use a small metal spatula for cutting it to pieces then chopsticks to eat with right from the grill.  

Take a quick stroll through Ginza and find great confectionery shops. Discover the rich variety of traditional Japanese sweets - and, best of all, choose one to try! Usually made of rice and red beans, these sweets change based on the ingredients available at each time of year and even their shapes are inspired by what you can find in nature during that season.

At the end of the delicious Tokyo food tour, your guide can recommend other cool local bars in small alleys, or a karaoke place for more fun into the night. You're welcome to explore longer or return to the start point with your guide.
