Tokyo Food Guide

We can demystify Tsukiji Market, the world’s largest seafood market,


and introduce you to a new sushi neta, like kinmedai (splendid alfonsino) that is pink, slightly sweet, and is succulent.


Introduce you to a wide variety of Japanese pickles.


Lead you to a special bar where cocktails are made with seasonal fruit and vegetables,


or to a bar serving craft beer and sweet potato chips.


Explore the unique izakaya culture from smoky grilled meat joints

to saké specialty restaurants and discover the subtle nuances of saké through flights of saké,


or through the native distilled spirit, shōchū. Yukari was the first non-Japanese to pass the shōchū advisor exam.
