What you'll do

We will walk around Shinjuku area and explain a bit of what's going on there.

There are more than 1000 restaurants in Shinjuku, so it's almost impossible to know where is the good venue as many places are similar looking.
I have spent so much time, checking which ones are good by visiting, eating and drinking as I have been to 2,000+ restaurants and eaten 600+ bowl of ramen!

We are going to three or four great Japanese Taverns ( Izakaya ) and bars in Shinjuku area, having very Japanese dishes and drinks. Each venue I take you on the day is very unique and great atmosphere for sure, so you will be impressed!
I'm definitely let you try food and drink which is very Japanese style ones. No Italian, no Spanish or anything like that!

I'm really looking forward to meeting you and taking you on this great tour of Tokyo's food and drink!

Please check another Airbnb Experience of mine, "Standingbar,Tavern,Ramen n SOUVENIR Ueno" as well.

Matane! See you soon!
Other things to note
Please bring cash, ¥3,000-¥4,000 for the food and drink.

Hello! I'm Akira, a professional restauranteur and International sake sommelier with 17 years experience in the food and drink industry.

I have been searching and sampling the best food and drink in Tokyo and I now have a great knowledge of Tokyo's Restaurants and Bars. Tokyo has a lot to offer, but unless you have a guide it can be very overwhelming, you won't know where to start, and you can easily miss the hidden gems. If your goal is to experience great food and drink in Tokyo, I will show you where to go and what to order.

I have another Airbnb Experience called "JP Delicacies in LOCAL Taverns n Ramen!"

Akira was an amazing guide and fantastic company. I thoroughly enjoyed our conversations and the places he took us were great! I recommend you sign up and experience this, if not for the entertaining company than at least for the delicious food and drink!

This was a truly unique opportunity to eat and drink like the locals in Tokyo, in a relaxed atmosphere. Akira was so good to chat with and is a really genuine and lovely guy, who is perceptive towards your interests, tapering the experience to individual tastes. He took us to some great places and taught us about local culture and produce. The value is fantastic and I couldn't recommend this experience enough to anybody travelling to Tokyo.

Akira-san is very fun to be around and felt more like getting to know a friend rather than being on a tour. He was very informative and can recommend drinks plus food pairings if you are unsure. While he is great at informing you about Japan’s craft beer and sake scene, he is very open to getting to know you as well. The beer and sake were great and the food he picks out is local and fantastic. I would recommend Akira-san if you want a fun night out in town filled with good drinks and delicious food.

Akira is a fantastic host and his tours are a great way to get a feel for the local culture through good food and good conversation. A great way to get off the beaten track and away from some of the tourist traps, Akira can provide you with tips on where to eat, shop or travel throughout Japan.

Aki was an amazing guide! We had a great conversation with him. He's very knowledgeable in food and beer. We had some dietary restrictions, and Aki was great in accommodating us.
