One of the best ways to experience a new city is to eat your way around it. This walking food tour of Shibuya is a foodie’s dream. You’ll meet your guide at a pre-arranged spot near Shibuya station before escaping the usual tourist hot spots. You’ll avoid overpriced restaurants and instead go to the side street haunts that locals love.

As you hop between eateries, try all sorts of local favorites, such as takoyaki (octopus balls), Wagyu beef yakitori skewers, okonomiyaki (Japanese pancake), and lots of sushi. You’ll wash the delicious food down with shochu (rice liquor) and Japanese beer. For those with a sweet tooth, there’s also dessert to try too.

As well as the side streets, you’ll get to see a depachika (underground food hall)—another local favorite. This is a superb way to get a glimpse of Tokyo’s food culture from a local's perspective.

Do this tour first

Alex and Jennifer were perfect host. While I’ve eaten sushi for many years, I’ve never really tasted sushi like this before? Unfortunately, it will spoil me for tasting sushi in the United States. Also Kobe beef, wow. I would highly advise you to take this...More

Great to try even if you've been to Tokyo before
