Had a fantastic experience with two different food tours while visiting Tokyo with our local guide Nori and Hiro in Osaka. Both were great guides and insightful with their knowledge of food and Japanese culture. The four of us really enjoyed our time and had fun and laughs all the way. Thank you so much Nori and Hiro! I highly recommend joining a food tour as you will discover an authentic side of Japan you would otherwise most certainly have missed.

We had such a fun time with Hiro! He took us to the “real Osaka” where there were no tourists apart from us. We ate some delicious food and laughed a lot. We absolutely loved it ! I’d recommend this to anyone wishing to delve deeper into local culture. A great experience.

I seldom write reviews but felt compelled to do so after spending several hours on food tour with Meg from Oishii Food Tours in Tokyo. The tour started in the Shimbashi area and ended in the Ginza part of town.
Meg was very knowledgeable of the restaurants, bars and pastry shops in the area. She was able to navigate our 6-party group in out of establishments efficiently. Meg’s approach is light, fun and most of all loves to share her knowledge of food and local culture. There were place we ate and drank that the average person visiting Tokyo would have never had found or would have considered stopping into.
If you are thinking of booking do not hesitate. It will be the best decision you made in a long time. Thanks again Oishii Food Tours and Meg for the wonderful foodie experience.

Best,

We had the BEST time with our guide, Hirotake Watanabe, for our amazing tour in Osaka! Since it was raining, Hiro took us to 3 different restaurants in a local area (not the landmark places everyone else goes), stopped by a great Japanese whisky/liquor store and even explained how Japanese plinko works! Every place has amazing quality food and these places don’t have English menus so we wouldn’t be able to enjoy local gems like these on our own. We ate so much we were about to explode! Hiro is so crazy and delightful, and lived a fascinating life. We had great conversations and lots of laughs! Definitely a must for Osaka!

I was a little skeptical about this tour because (at the time of booking) there were only 4 reviews on trip advisor. However, all reviews were excellent, so I took the risk. So glad I did! This was the best tour of our entire trip! We did the red lantern tour in Ebisu. Meg was our warm and friendly tour guide and was very flexible with the tour schedule. Because of when we arrived in Japan, we wouldn’t have been able to make their originally scheduled 6:15 tour, so Meg kindly agreed to start the tour an hour later for us.

We met Meg in the Ebisu metro station, which was one stop from Shibuya (where we were staying). She held a sign that said Oishii Food Tours and we found her easily. She had the entire night planned out, and had called ahead to each place we visited and made reservations. Every place we went to was crowded, but there was always a reserved seat just for our group when we arrived. It was seamless.

The tour was only at places locals go. I don’t think any of the places had English menus. She took care of ordering all the food. The cost of the tour included food and one beverage at each place we ate. We ate at about 4 or 5 places and after beer and Saki and a Japanese cocktail at each place, we were a little tipped by the end of the tour. It felt like we were having a fun night on the town in Japan, the way we would have a night on the town with friends in the US. It was really a blast!

Meg also had little flash cards teaching us some Japanese and the name of the fish we were eating. There was another flashcard of useful Japanese phrases (which we kept with us for the remainder of the trip and used often).

Overall, best tour we went on during our entire trip! If we were in Japan longer we would have done the other Oishii Food Tour that they offer. Meg shared with us that this is a new tour company and she is one of the owners. You can tell she is an owner because she shows a great deal of pride and passion in her work. I suspect Oishii Food Tours will become very popular and very booked very soon!

From the moment of booking, I knew we had chosen the right company to explore the Tokyo’s izakaya scene. The company were excellent in regards to communication - sending me reminders and keeping me up to date about any changes in our tour.

We had a small group of only 4, which was absolutely perfect for the venues we visited. Our guide Komachi was great: very informative and really lovely, taking care of us throughout the night. We visited four places over the course of the night, each one showcasing something different Japanese cuisine.

I would highly recommend this tour and any tour with Oishii.

We went on two different private tours with Oishii Tokyo Food Tours during the holiday season in December, 2016. Both tours were outstanding, and we highly recommend Oishii. As the title indicates, two tours were not enough! Had we known how great they would be, we would have re-arranged our travel schedule and booked a different food tour with Oishii (for a different Tokyo neighborhood) each night we were in town.

After researching our options, we selected Oishii and began working with Meg on the arrangements. Our requests were complex, since we were traveling during the holiday season (many places were closing down) and had specific time requirements based on our schedule. These were not issues -- Meg arranged an itinerary to meet our needs.

Our first tour was with Meg in the Meguro area. Within 3 to 4 hours of arriving in Tokyo, we had already: literally caught a fish in a restaurant, eaten fresh sushi made from the fish we caught, sampled great tempura and dined on smoked duck. We also tried some exotic desserts (gelato and cheesecake made from celery). All of this happened at quaint and unique local restaurants. Meg was an excellent guide! She interpreted everything for us and shared a lot about Japanese culture during our experience, and answered all of our questions.

A few nights later we toured Shimbashi with Nimo. This was also a great experience. Our tour began with a drink on the 46th floor of a high-rise building that provided a sweeping view of Tokyo at night. We then visited several places, where we ate: Japanese-style tapas dishes (pork, chicken, croquettes), grilled vegetables, and a variety of sushi and scallops. We also sampled high-quality sake and beer, and had drinks with some locals that we met at one of the bars we visited. Our tour ended with some superb pork ramen. We made an instant connection with Nimo. He was an outstanding guide! He educated us on all-things Japanese and we shared lots of great conversation throughout the tour.

Do yourself a favor and schedule a tour with Oishii Tokyo Food Tours.

My husband and I love to go on food tours in every city we travel to, and I have to say that the Oishii food tour is one of our all time favorites! We did the Aka Chochin tour with Kanako and it was such a fun evening full of great food, drinks, and conversation with our guide and fellow tourists. This tour had the right balance of food, drinks, and walking. Kanako was kind, friendly, helpful, and full of knowledge. All of the food was delicious, and the stops were great!

We just returned from an awesome trip in Japan. We used Oishii Tokyo for 2 food tours while there including the Aka Chochin in Ebisu and a custom tour around Shimbashi. With the language barrier, this was a great way to visit local eateries that we wouldn't have visited on our own. Having a local to guide you to restaurants where you know the food will be good and not having to worry about trying to translate a menu takes the stress away, allowing you to really enjoy your food. Both of our guides (Miyuki and Megumi) were wonderful and spoke English very well. The food was fantastic. In Ebisu, we got a taste of yakitori, sashimi, okinomiyaki and ramen and 4 alcoholic drinks at places filled with locals. In Shimbashi, we got a true taste of the salarymen neighborhood venturing around to many places filled with workers after a long day at the office. Both tours were well worth the money!
