Experience Details

With its bite-sized pieces of chicken that are skewered and roasted to perfection over a hot grill, it’s no wonder that a lot of people – locals and tourists alike – love yakitori. Made conveniently over a hot grill, yakitori is a simple dish that is packed with so many flavors. Seasoned perfectly every time, either sweet or salty-sweet, yakitori is best paired with condiments such as shichimi togarashi, wasabi, and yuzukosho. You can eat yakitori as a whole meal with rice and miso soup, or have it with a serving or two of sake, or simply enjoy its delicious grandeur on its own. You can also make other variations of yakitori at home by using other ingredients such as shiitake mushrooms, shishito (small green peppers), and other tasty produce. Discover the delicious yakitori and ramen on offer in Shinjuku and join a Tokyo Yakitori and Ramen Tour in Shinjuku! You’ll be guided by one of Tokyo’s top ramen experts, who has been writing about the local ramen scene for over 10 years. He’s visited over 1300 ramen shops, written two books about ramen, and even has experience talking about ramen on TV! He’s held tours for chefs, food writers, and all kinds of food enthusiasts. It’s safe to say that you’ll be in good hands, plus, your guide has plenty of knowledge to share about Tokyo yakitori in one of these private tours. So, after you’ve had the best ramen in town, you’ll find yourself squeezing in with the regulars in their favorite Tokyo yakitori and ramen and shops. A big bowl of ramen is hearty and delicious on its own, but it’s also best paired with a plateful of yakitori. The savory broth and chewy noodles combined with the succulent, juicy yakitori meat is something you won’t want to miss for the world! You’ll cap off the evening over a round of drinks and shout “kanpai!” with new-found friends.
