LET'S GET OUT OF THE TOURIST AREA where it is super busy and crowded with people!

My tour focuses on Ueno, which is not as crowded as Shibuya and Shinjuku and is less touristy. It is also famous with Japanese foodies for good quality at lower prices. I'm going to take you to popular bars and restaurants for ONLY LOCALS (NO TOURISTS!!) where the staff speaks only Japanese. I will order signature dishes, and we will discuss the food and drink (and you can pepper me with questions).

We will visit 3 restaurants/taverns, where you will sample sashimi, grilled fish and skewered meat. You will also have the opportunity to try UNIQUE Japanese alcoholic drinks (4 or more different type of drinks) and you'll be able to experience what Japanese taverns are like. After visiting these three taverns, we will end the tour at a great Ramen shop that is popular with locals. At the end of the tour, I will take you to the entrance of each train line, depending on where you need to go


  • Dinner - ALL DRINKS and FOOD are INCLUDED in the fee. You will have 5 dishes included RAMEN in total.
  • Alcoholic Beverages - You have 5 drinks on the tour.
  • You are going to have a small souvenir porcelain cup, using one on the tour.

I had a wonderful time with Aki. He makes everyone feel welcome and part of the group. This is a good snapshot of the hidden places around Ueno which is much less crowded than the other parts of Tokyo.

Guide was super fun and engaging! Took us to the real local spots and tried lots of unique things, not just ramen.

The tour was so much fun! Highly recommend to start your trip to Tokyo to learn about the city, culture, food and drinks.

We had an absolute blast on this tour and our guide, Akita, was such a good time. The food was delicious and at times adventurous, and that’s just what we came for.

Great time. Much more food than just ramen, and was great to see a different part of the city! Highly recommended!

I had an amazing, authentic experience thanks to Aki! I have lived in Japan for a while, but this was a side of Tokyo I’ve never seen—and probably never would without an experienced guide to lead the way and tell me all about it. Aki is well known and well liked by all the folks around the amazin...
