Let`s explore a traditional shopping area, a "shotengai". This one in Meguro is almost a kilometre long! Afterwards we can have lunch or dinner with choices like sushi, an izakaya, ramen, etc. The location is Musashi-Koyama station on the Meguro line, a few stops from Meguro station on the Yamanote line. Wear comfortable shoes and it is covered so this tour works rain or shine. (Cost of meal is not included. There a budget options or fancy places, too.)

Hi Friends - I`m a 12 year resident of Tokyo and have shown many visitors around as I enjoy the feeling of seeing the city fresh, through their eyes. Tokyo has an amazing mix of ancient and modern, traditional and on the edge.
I can explain the culture and history, as well as seeing the sights and eating delicious food. Living here is like peeling an onion, there is always another fascinating layer underneath.
Let`s go to some mouth-watering restaurants, old-fashioned shopping areas with "atmosphere" and cool bars that are not listed in guide books.
I`ve travelled quite a bit myself and I know having a local person to show you the out-of-the-way places REALLY makes a difference.
Working in Asia for many years now, I`ve also lived in Europe, Africa and the Middle East and have travelled to over 40 countries along the way. I escaped from the NYC area, USA, in my late teens.
I`m a non-smoker and social drinker, really into micro-brews and wine. I enjoy cuisine from just about anywhere, favorites being Italian, Middle Eastern, Thai and Indian. Of course, I love just about all Japanese food (especially sushi) & Tokyo offers hundreds and hundreds of excellent restaurants/bars/cafes in all price ranges from reasonable to insanely high-priced luxury.
