TOKYO

Sunamachi shopping street is a 670 meters long street located at a residential area of East Tokyo. You may think of Tokyo as a modern high tech city with full of busy people. However, here in Sunamachi, time flows slowly and friendly supportive locals are still run their family business. Exploring and seeing the nostalgic atmosphere shops is enjoyable.
For example an Oden hotpot shop sells the steaming hot ingredients at the front and a Yakitori Skewed chicken shop always gives off pgood smell. Many shops have business over 60 years. Their foods are cooked with family passed down recipe and have supported the neighborhoods’ daily diet.

  • ・Have a street “Kampai (Cheers in Japanese)” party with a cup of Japanese Sake.
  • ・You are very welcomed by the friendly locals. You would be able to feel being engaged in the community due to talking to them via your guide.

    Loved this food and drink tour on Sunamachi Ginza street run by local family businesses. Lovely tour guide Sachimi was very knowledgeable, informative and friendly. The food was delicious (Oishi) and plentiful. Would highly recommend this experience. Marilyn and Andy F from Brisbane Australia

    Everything about this tour was excellent. Yoko, our guide, was the most elegant, loveliest, full of information lady we could hope for. The food was amazing, I can't describe it, you should just do the tour and eat it all.

    Our Tokyo FooDrink Tour was excellent. Our guide, Eri, was so full of life that she made the tour full of fun. She also had a command of English. We strongly recommend the tour for tourists visiting Tokyo.

    The Sunamachi tour exceeded my expectation as it is not just food and drink. The friendly and pretty tour guide helped me to understand more about the Japanese culture which I found fascinating. Normally I do not eat street food because I worry that they could be made from leftovers. However, I changed my mind when I saw most of the street food are freshly made in front of you when you placed the orders. Tempura and the red bean paste “fish” are must eat as you can sit down and enjoy the food with hot tea. There are more than 60 shops along the two sides of the street selling miso, tea, seaweed, strawberry..... at very reasonable price. There are two 100 yen stores and my backpack was full after the 3.5-hour trip!

    We did the Tokyo FooDrink Tour and it was one of the things I enjoyed the most in Tokyo. We tasted a great selection of different foods and they were all delicious. Eri, our tour guide, was very kind and had lots of information to share with us. Discovering Tokyo Street Food is a must!

    We enjoyed our tour of the Sunamachi Ginza with Sachimi very much! Even though we have already spent some time in Tokyo, we still learned a lot about the history, shopping and different foods. And we ate so much! We enjoyed being off the beaten path and saw very few other tourists. Sachimi was an excellent guide who was able to adapt to our interests and needs easily, and who shared a wealth of knowledge. We recommend Sachimi and Japan Wonder Travel's Sunamachi Ginza tour to anyone visiting Tokyo.

    Sunamachi FooDrink Tour is a great way to try out Japanese street food. Our guide Yuko made us feel right at ease. We went into numerous shops & enjoyed talking to the owners. It was fun to walk among the locals as they lined up at their favorite shops. Yuko exposed us to a wide variety of food.

    Yuriko took us on a walking food tour along Sunamaci Ginza in Tokyo on 26/4/18. She is a wonderful guide - friendly, kind and charismatic, not to mention knowledgable! She explained the ingredients and the cooking techniques of everything we ate, which was all delicious, and even sent us photos after the tour to keep as a memento! Thank you Yuriko - we are very grateful and would highly recommend this tour!

    The Sunamachi Ginza tour was very interesting. Friendly Mr. Kazu-san was most informative. He introduced me to many vendors and explained their shop and product histories. I was quite full after 3.5 hours of sampling all the delicious food and drinks! The neighborhoods are a part of Tokyo not experienced by most visitors, so I highly recommend going on this unique tour.
    by Janna (12/02/17)
    Very interesting and funny tour at a local market, that we would not have visited without this tour (we were the only tourists there), Our guide was fantastic - he introduced us to the market, showed us local specialities and answered kindly all our questions about the local japanese food habits and traditions. We were blessed to have a "private" tour with him and enjoyed it a lot. We highly recommend the tour to everyone who is interested to not only taste local specialities but also learn about their origins and how they are made. We would definitely always book this tour again!

    Awesome tour with Sammy! We ate what locals ate and explored the alley way of mom & pop shops. Great experience away from the tourist areas. At the end, we ate, drank, laughed, and ate more. An unforgettable experience. Thank you Sammy.

    This was a great tour, we traveled to the long road of various food stalls with long family history, there were so many different types of foods to try and taste. Yuko-san was very knowledgeable explains all types of food for us. I was extreamly full by the time we finished! I will be going back again for sure!
