Tokyo is truly The World’s Greatest Food City. The 2017 Michelin guide for Japan awards 227 Tokyo eating establishments with one or more stars, compared to Paris’ 92. At Maction Planet, we believe that this understates the number of high-quality restaurants that should be recognised. There are several restaurants in Tokyo that have actually shunned the award, and thousands that the reviewers have not even got round to sampling! We will take you to some of the highlights of these restaurants on our Tokyo Food Tours.
The Michelin statistics are often bandied about as being empirical evidence of Tokyo’s culinary dominance. However, that is only a small part of the reason why Tokyo is a foodie’s ultimate destination. The most interesting experiences are had behind the unmarked doors, down the winding steps and in the places where you would never expect to find the best ramen, tonkatsu, sushi or burger!
Maction Planet’s Tokyo Food Tours are a genuinely unique experience. Constantly reinventing ourselves, as more and more groups go to the same department stores and areas of town, we explore more untouched areas.
Unlike other more compartmentalised group food tours, we can seamlessly integrate visits to Tokyo’s most interesting eateries around your fully customised itinerary. Enjoy great food around a baseball game or soccer match. Take your tribe to the best family-friendly restaurants. Enjoy shochu and food pairings with the world’s only dual-certified shochu sommelier. Unlike others, we are not formally affiliated with any establishments. We do not take commission from any bars or restaurants that you will visit on any Maction Planet Tokyo Tour. We visit places based on your requests and desires, and we welcome the chance to open up the city’s historic food culture to you. Itadakimasu!
If our Tokyo Food Tours whet your appetite, you will probably also enjoy incorporating complimentary experiences such as our Craft Beer Tours, Whisky tours , Sake tours and experiences and Shochu Tastings into your perfect, personalised journey through the World’s Greatest Metropolis.
