I'm a foodie, travel lover and was a professional analyst of in-flight catering in aviation business. I worked with chefs in more than 10 countries so that they can understand Japanese cooking basics in a better way. Also I am a certified English guide and run my own travel agency. https://www.fukagawafoodandtours.com/ I was born and raised in Koto district where the experience takes place and I spent some decades in the other areas in Japan. Then I came back here in 2017. If you spent your whole life in one place, you may never notice how your home town is unique. Fortunately, I was the one that could realize the charm of our community through my life in the other area. This experience is not just an experience to try food and drinks as many as possible but an introduction to Japanese drinking culture and people's real life in Tokyo.

The venue is not a touristic place at all. You rarely see international tourists here but It's a place that locals have a good time and good food with their friends. We have a lot of nice bars and restaurants that tourists would not know. We visit a standing bar restaurant and the other restaurant that serves Gyoza, pan-fried dumpling. I will share back ground stories about the foods and beverages and show you how Tokyo people enjoy them.
This experience serves alcohol beverages. We will serve soft drinks for those who does not meet the legal drinking age.
