    What to Expect
    Meet for your tour guide in Asakusa and set off for your tasting tour. Numbers are limited to 10 people, ensuring you'll spend an intimate day with a small group of like-minded food lovers.

    Your guide has picked out about several stops for the day where you can try some of the most popular Japanese food. During the tour, try Japanese plums, pickles, rice crackers, tea, ice cream, and melon bread. Your food tastings might change slightly depending on what food is in season at the time.

    As you journey through the Asakusa District of Tokyo, your guide tells your stories of the area's history, as well as why some food is more well-liked in Japan than others. Enjoy a traditional Japanese lunch, with cuisine from southern Japan, before your tour ends with a taste of matcha tea (or ice cream). Your guide drops you and your group off at a central location and the rest of the day's activities are up to you.

    Please note: A minimum of two people per booking is required.

    Loved this tour. We started near the shrine whee we later circled back to partake in the rituals. The first stop was a quaint little restaurant where we had a bento style meal with sake. The owner and his staff treated us to a musical performance as well. Throughout the trip, we

    I found this company on a list of things to do with family in Tokyo and read the great reviews. We weren't sure if the price was going to be worth it but it was worth EVERY PENNY. We had Yuko as a tour guide and from the beginning, she did everything she could to accommodate us.

    So happy to hear you liked our Asakusa tour. Many people go to this area without taking a tour but you miss so much of the great hidden gems and explanations. We were thrilled you could join us and that you left full! That is always one of our goals.

    The Asakusa tour was a fabulous way to discover so many hidden secrets of the area. We tried a wide range of local foods that we might not have ordered on our own and discovered spots in the back streets that we had missed on previous visits. With perfect English and a locals
