What an excellent experience. We had a blast going around shinjuku with yoshi. He took us to great local spots where we felt really welcomed, and had tons of information and recommendations for us. Would absolutely recommend this tour to anyone

Yoshi-san was incredible and went above and beyond to show us the best spots. This is absolutely a must do for any non-local. :)

Hung out with Yoshi for the day and it was amazing. From great story telling over Japanese whiskey to some of the best yakitori I’ve had while in Japan, you cannot find a better, more authentic experience.

Great food, fun and value. If you’re looking for a good food and drink tour, I don’t know one that would be better than this.

Yoshi was amazing - it was so amazing to learn about Japanese culture and practice and sample some incredible food and drink. He makes you feel very welcome and you get a truly local experience. I travelled alone and sadly don’t speak Japanese, and so having Yoshi show the bars and izakayas, explaining the history and traditional dishes was just magical. Can’t recommend highly enough!
