neighbourhood tour with a few food tasting opportunities along the way.


I take you my neighborhood where there are many off the beaten paths, so as to see Tokyo people's daily life in their neighborhoods.

Shimokitazawa is the Tokyo suburb you need to get to know. This once farming suburb has gone through a number of reinventions in the past few decades and shows no sign of slowing down. Located only a few stops from the heart of Tokyo, this pocket of Setagaya Ward is a local favourite. You can be traced back to the 1970's and 80's.

The Kichijoji area often tops Tokyo's most-desirable-place-to-live list, primarily because vast and lovely Inokashira Park is just minutes away from Kichijoji Station, and Shibuya and Shinjuku are both relatively close. Head out here for a day of relaxing recreation on boats and under trees, followed by an evening of authentic Japanese food and drink as you tour the standing bars of Harmonica Yokocho Alley.
