Experience a night out as a Japanese salaryman with this Shimbashi night food tour! Visit hidden drinking dens, izakayas (Japanese gastropubs), and authentic ramen restaurants in Shimbashi–one of Tokyo’s central business districts. Nestled conveniently between the upscale shopping districts of Ginza and the business center of Marunouchi, Shimbashi is not just a place; it's a strategic crossroads where commerce, culture, and culinary delights converge.

You’ll be feasting on a 6 dish izakaya course and an all-you-can-drink bar featuring a range of Japanese sake, beer, and other alcoholic beverages.
