Tokyo guided eating tours

  • 1

My wife and I are going to be visiting Tokyo next month for the first time. We've eaten our way around Asia the last few vacations, and are excited to finally go to Japan as a destination, rather than a place to transfer planes.

There are a handful of guided eating tours (walking around either neighborhoods or markets) where we live in New York that are decent in terms of having an introduction to some local places or types of foods that a new visitor to the city might not normally find. I've searched the Japan board and have found posts for tours of the Tsukiji fish market, but not really any other guided eating tours. Are there any chowhounds out there that have seen such tours that might be worth taking? We'll be language challenged, so English speaking would be important to us.

Thanks in advance, and thanks to those who have posted in the past...we already have a nice list of places to check out thanks to the board.

  1. I vaguely recall something about Elizabeth Ando(u?) leading tours. I imagine they would be very good, but they were quite pricey.
