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 good smell. Many shops have business over 60 years. Their foods are cooked with family passed down recipe and have supported the neighborhoods’ daily diet.

HIGHLIGHTS
  • ・Try Japanese homemade dishes such as Tempura, Yakitori skewered chicken and Oden hot pot. The foods are just cooked in the stores' kitchen so as to be warmly served.
  • ・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.

    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!
    by Family Perrier (10/13/17)
    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.

    by Salma (08/05/17)
    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!

    We took the Sunamachi Ginza with Hero - we had a great time, nice selection of Japanese foods and great stories and guidance. We had fun, thank you!
    by RoniRon (07/30/17)
    Thanks, Kumi, for the wonderful experience! We tasted a selection of popular Japanese 'side dishes' and learned a lot about Japanese culinary traditions in a very pleasant way. We would certainly recommend this tour!
    by Martine (07/24/17)
    Yu led us on a great tour through Sunamachi, a street loaded with yummy foods, history, and friendly people. Yu was entertaining and gave informative, interesting info on the street and store owners. He also was able to answer the many questions we had. As tourists in Tokyo, we yearn to visit streets where locals shop...but don't know where to go. The Sunamachi Street tour was exactly what we wanted. Food was delicious, Yu was the best guide! We'll check with your company for more tours when we visit again next year.
    by Hawaii Visitors (06/03/17)
    Thank you Yu...u work hard to give us a great food tour. It was such a treat to meet generations of locals more than one store perfecting their food. The over 20 types of miso was my favorite. Thanks again!!
    by Judy (04/17/17)
    The tour was excellent. Our tour guide Sachimi was wonderful, very knowledgeable and spoke very good English. The food was delicious at every stop and the local shop owners were very friendly. The tour lasted 3 hours and Sachimi also helped us find our way to our next destination at the end of the tour. We would highly recommend anyone to try out this tour, especially at the start of your trip to give you an idea about the local cuisine and what to expect from Tokyo food and drink.
    by James and Lucy Boler (03/31/17)
    Very relaxing food tour with a wide range of well known traditional Japanese foods for tasting. Our guide was Sachimi. She was very informative and made sure we all enjoyed our food experience. Would recommend this tour to anyone travelling to Japan.
    by Emma (03/27/17)
    If you want a local's perspective on local food and market culture, you can't go wrong with this. We showed up on the morning and were greeted by 3 guides to babysit us and one other couple - this made interacting and getting local insights super easy as there was always someone around to ask questions. All in all, Yuko, Jung and Thai did an amazing job in guiding us around and made the morning fly by (in the most positive sense). It was an awesome experience and me and my wife can't express our thanks enough to the team - more so even than the insights, we fell utterly in love with them and their authentic and genuine interest and passion in all things local. Highly recommended!
    by Ferdi (03/25/17)
    We had a wonderful time! Yuko and team were extremely knowledgeable, accommodating, warm, friendly, and took us for some delicious food. Five stars and two thumbs up!
    by Michelle (03/25/17)
    This tour was great! Our tour was very organized and also a superb insight to real Japan. Our tour guide was very intelligent and had impressive knowledge of the history, people and specialty products that were in this unique market. Wonderful culture and learning experience unlike anything we saw in Tokyo. Delicious food made fresh and the people were so kind and warm hearted. My family had so much fun!
