Tips and recommendations by our official guides
As you probably know, Shinjuku is one of the famous sightseeing spots in Tokyo, but since it is vast and statistically has the largest number of eateries in Tokyo, you'll find many people everywhere, which makes it difficult to find hidden but famous restaurants that offer delicious food loved by the locals. Also, those popular restaurants that are on the guide book are often too crowded with many tourists, while those hidden famous restaurants that do not appear in the guide book, you may face the problem of the language barrier.
We have created this authentic food tour that provides a visit to three our favorite restaurants. In order to make it quite comfortable, you will be accompanied by one of our local guides.
While enjoying the delicious cuisine, you can also learn about Japanese food culture and the complex Shinjuku area through the tour.
We will start the trip by visiting a Sushi restaurant tucked in the Shinjuku underground. Here, an authentic Sushi chef (Itamae) will create beautiful Sushi creations right in front of your eyes. Next, we will visit a Yakiniku restaurant located near Shinjuku station. Here, we will prepare our own Japanese BBQ featuring the famous Wagyu. Enjoy your time grilling the meat with an authentic Japanese shichirin (BBQ stove).
The foodie tour comes to a climax as you wander around the hustling bustling Kabuki-Cho, adorned with vibrant neon lights. Right in front of the famous Godzilla TOHO Theater is our final stop; an artisan gelato store in a quiet, cozy cafe.
