Izakaya are a quintessential part of Japanese drinking culture and a trip to Japan would not be complete without a visit to one. What is an Izakaya? It is hard to define exactly but an Izakaya is often translated as a pub or a tavern. Basically an Izakaya is part pub and part restaurant and are basically places where friends or coworkers gather over drinks and food for a good time. Have a chance to visit them with a local Japan guide on this Tokyo food tour.
The food might be described as ‘small plates’ and can consist of everything from yakitori to sashimi to fried chicken or pickles and edamame.
Dishes are ordered and shared among everyone. This allows everyone to get a taste of everything that is ordered. It’s therefore a great where to sample a large variety of dishes accompanied by a cold drink and good conversation.
Yokocho are one of Japans best kept food and drink secrets, consisting of networks of small alleys crammed with tiny bars, restaurants and cafes, they offer a unique experience and an insight into Japan’s after dark habits.

Yokocho are dotted all over Tokyo and hark back to a yesteryear that many tourists don’t think still exists in this huge metropolis.
