    Andy was a great guide. Very knowledgeable and able to gauge his audience perfectly. Just enough info about the food and areas to keep you curious and make you want to come back and explore for yourself. Definitely recommend this - good for kids too (my two boys - 11 and 9 - loved it).

Excellent tour

We really enjoyed our food tour with Andy recently. It provided a great opportunity to try different local foods alongside an explanation of their origin. Andy provided a good commentary with insight into local customs and culture which was fascinating. We were a small group of six and we visited lovely old streets in areas we would never have found. It also gave us more confidence to try different foods after the tour. We would definitely recommend the west side street food tour.

Andy takes you through his local neighborhoods and gives you some insight into the area and everyday Japanese life and culture. The food we sampled was delicious with some local delicacies like dango (mochi) and the best inari I have ever tried. I really enjoyed the tour and would recommend it to anyone who wants to see more than just the tourist side of Tokyo and also try some local food.

The street food tour was great, the guide is an Australian who has been living in Japan with his wife for over 15 years, it is as if a local is taking you through his neighborhood and there is good food for everyone who lives in Japanese food and life if you are interested in Japan I can highly recommend this tour.

We enjoyed the tour a lot. Andy, our guide, showed us around in the neighborhood of Nakano and Koenji and selected great places with awesome street food. It was a wonderful afternoon and gave us a local's view of the area, which we would not had otherwise.
