Ditch the commotion of Tokyo’s well trodden tourist hubs and venture into the charismatic pockets of West Tokyo on a ‘no fuss’ walking and street food jaunt.

Dive head first into the Tokyo neighbourhoods of Nakano and Koenji, as we explore the twisting alleyways, alternate subcultures and casual eateries that give these enclaves their distinctive character.

Feast upon a selection of eats from local vendors, independent markets and Japanese franchises, as we walk the nostalgic ‘shotengai’, boisterous ‘yokocho’ and contrasting calm of the residential backstreets.

Gain an insight into life in the streets, as well as the confidence to take on Tokyo’s dining scene as a neighbourhood pro. Local eating and drinking hotspots, suggestions for offbeat neighbourhoods to explore, you’ll be equipped with it all as we cap off our outing over a drink at a quintessential ‘izakaya’.

So, lace up your walking boots, come hungry and don’t be shy about getting your hands dirty on this Tokyo walking and street food tour.
