Event Location

Shibuya: A mecca for youth culture, shopping, and entertainment, Shibuya Station’s surrounding commercial area is a fashionista haven, home to numerous department stores, boutiques, and entertainment hubs. Shibuya’s most famous meeting point is the famous Hachiko Statue, a memorial to one of the most loyal hounds in history. And, of course, you can’t miss the Shibuya Crossing. For two minutes at a time, the world’s most intense pedestrian crossing comes to life. A heavily trafficked street photography spot, the crossing has become symbolic of Tokyo, featured in films like Lost in Translation and Tokyo Drift. Another point of interest is Bunkamura which literally means “culture village,”  consisting of concert halls, a theater, a cinema, and a museum that features changing exhibits.

  1. Great Evening Tour

    We book this food tour for learning about Japanese food and culture and it was so much fun thanks to our guide Satoshi.
    He was an amazing guide. He shared his knowledge of Japanese food and culture in an entertaining way. We visited plenty of places and really enjoyed Japanese food.
    Satoshi also paid so much attention to our children. I recommend this tour to families with children.

  2. Amazing food experience

    Asami-san was so much fun. She made sure that we are enjoying the tour. It was not only eating but learning about food history of Japan. At the end of the night, I was so satisfied. Shibuya’s night lights were also plus to the tour. I recommend this tour for sure.

  3. Best walking tour I heave ever attended

    Although it was a rainy day, it was still fantastic. Yes we enjoyed food but the best part was learning about local life and Japanese culture. My favorite part was standing only sushi restaurant.

  4. Eat, learn, make friends, and explore.

    You can read as much as you want on the internet, but one food tour from a Japanese native and you learn much more. The food was incredible, and the balance of walking to food amount was perfect. Highly recommend this tour.
