Why you should try an Eatwith experience in Tokyo

Tokyo is a blend of old-world traditions and modern architecture and living. A bustling yet spotlessly clean metropolis, Tokyo is full of amazing things to do and places to see. After visiting the sights, why not wander through the streets, taking in the tiny shops, alleyways, and street vendors. Get your fill of delicious street food, but be careful what you order because navigating the menus without speaking any Japanese can sometimes be tricky!

While a lot of restaurants do not like to cater to travelers because they don't speak English, one way to get an authentic taste of Tokyo cuisine is to book a dining event with a local Eatwith host. From food tours that will help you sample the best Tokyo street food, to cooking classes that will teach you how to make authentic sushi, to Sake and Wagyu beef tastings, dining with a Tokyo Eatwith host is the best way to break the language barrier and to enjoy an authentic Japanese meal.

Our hosts speak several different languages and will give you insider tips on where to go and what to do in Tokyo, showing you hidden gems and local hangouts that you won't find in any guidebook!
