Tips and recommendations by our official guides

Shinjuku, a renowned Tokyo destination, can be overwhelming with its vastness and a staggering number of eateries. Amidst the crowds, it's challenging to uncover those hidden gems beloved by locals, often tucked away from guidebook fame, or hampered by language barriers.

Enter our authentic food tour, a curated journey to three of our cherished restaurants, guided by a local expert. Immerse yourself in delicious cuisine while delving into Japanese food culture and decoding the intricate Shinjuku area.

Our adventure commences at a concealed sushi haven, known only to locals. Here, a masterful Itamae crafts exquisite sushi creations before your very eyes. Next, we venture to a Yakiniku restaurant near Shinjuku's bustling West side or Kabuki-cho, where you'll grill the famous Wagyu on traditional Japanese shichirin BBQ stoves.

As we amble through the neon-lit streets of Kabuki-Cho, our foodie tour reaches its zenith. Finally, we conclude our gastronomic journey at a bar or Japanese snack spot, indulging in delectable desserts or refreshing drinks, leaving you with a satisfied stomach and a deeper appreciation of Tokyo's culinary treasures.
