    This tour is an excellent introduction to traditional Japanese food. Our tour guide Mack, was extremely friendly and knowledgeable and made our tour very worthwhile. I definitely recommend this to travellers as it was very easy to organise, to meet up, and we got to experience

    Makoto Hori (Mack) was a great and knowledgeable tour guide that explained everything in great detail. He only walked a little too fast, which forced me also to walk at his pace :) The food was great and I would definitely recommend this to anyone wanting to try something

    Quite expensive and not everything was available. For example fugu testicles were out of season. The fugu itself was quite chewy and the boiled skin like chewing a rubber band. Our host, Shoji was very knowledgeable and friendly.

    It was by chance that my booking is the only one for that date hence my younger brother & I enjoyed the best private tour on Ginza. Mack is our guide and very knowledgeable one at that. He speaks English well and nice to meet a fellowship. We had amazing time and delicious
