Was ihr unternehmen werdet

This tour takes you on a journey through time, through food! Spanning three geographical districts of Tokyo & three periods of time we will cover the foundation of Japanese food (the Edo period; 1603 to 1868), the most popular present-day foods in Japan & futuristic fusion twists on traditional flavours.

Starting in Nihonbashi, in the past, we will look at key ingredients & flavours that underpin Japanese food. We will enjoy traditional Japanese snacks that have been eaten for generations. Satsuma-age (fish cake), Amazake (rice drink), Imo Kenpi (potato chips) and Daifuku (glutinous rice mochi ). All of the shops that I have curated are over 100 years old, several date back to the Edo period itself!

Next we take a short subway ride to present-day (Yurakcho). We will eat & drink like Salarymen at an Izakaya (Japanese style pub) & noodle stall under the railway tracks. We will have Yakitori (grilled meat on skewers), a Sour (alcoholic drink unique to Japan) &tempura soba ( noodle soup dish). At Tokyo Station we will try Tamagoyaki (Japanese omelette) & Fruits Sando.

Arriving in Akihabara, an area famous for its electronics shops & Anime culture, we consider the future of food in Japan. We will try a selection of desserts which combine traditional flavours with a modern fusion twist.

My special relationships with local producers allow a backstage access to their stories.

This tour is absolutely outstanding! Sid was the best guide and had an obvious passion for sharing Japan’s rich culture and history with visitors. We learned so many valuable things AND tried some of best and most unique food. The structure of this tour (past, present, future) really sets it apart from others and adds deeper understand and appreciation to the food experience. We tried foods we NEVER would have found on our own, some of which were life changing. I highly highly recommend this tour to anyone visiting Tokyo, whether you have been to the city before or not. You will learn something new and you will enjoy some of the best hidden gems Tokyo has to offer! Thanks Sid!!!
