Join me on a walk around downtown Nagoya and try different local foods and snacks from Nagoya such as Miso Nikomi Udon, Hitsumabushi, and Oni Manju. This tour is not only delicious but also educational, as you will learn all about Nagoya as you eat your way through the streets. In a small group of up to 6 people plus guide, you will explore Sakae, the downtown area of Nagoya. The tour starts at 2:30 p.m. and takes about 3 hours. I will meet you at the Oasis 21 Bus Terminal, a popular tourist attraction in Sakae. You will first learn a little bit about Nagoya, its history, and interesting sights that are not to be missed, before learning some background information about Japanese food, and Nagoya food in particular. By that time, I hope you feel really hungry and you are ready for the first restaurant where you will get to try Miso Nikomi Udon, one of the most popular dishes in Nagoya. Other stops on the way include the underground food section of Japan's oldest department store (known as “depachika” in Japanese), as well as a couple of other stops on the way. For example, you will try Hitsumabushi, a delicious grilled eel dish that's a local Nagoya delicacy you will never forget! The tour ends with a beer (or other beverage of your choice) and some famous Tebasaki chicken wings at one of the most popular Izakaya in Nagoya (a typical Japanese bar).

Its landmark is the famous Nagoya Tower, which heads the long promenade of greenery that cuts the city with color.
