Japanese cuisine is not only the refined sushi and tempura, but it has a wide range of equally delicious, more casual dishes that the locals love. And on this tour you will discover these delicacies with a local guide. First, head to Yurakucho and mix with the office workers who relax with a beer and a grilled chicken skewer (yakitori) in the so called yakitori alley.
