  • As a culinary host food tour guide where I live I was intrigued to go on my first food tour that wasn't the one I lead! I would say that it is most definitely walking and food tour, not really a walking food tour that's really what I give where we're making lots of stops and doing mostly eating.

    However, I really enjoyed the great information that Ryo had for us about the Tsurugaoka Hachimangu shrine we went to and he was happy to take pictures for us. When we went into the shopping district he was happy to point out snacks of the area, and shopped for some rice snacks for us based on our tastes and then also picked some of his favorites out for us that he thought we'd like. For lunch we got to pick whatever we wanted off the menu and he was helpful in understanding the menu and the significance of certain things. For dessert he gave us a few options and we chose the cute little cafe that didn't really look super traditionally Japanese but was serving up sakura, purple sweet potato, vanilla, and red bean ice cream flavors with mochi flanking it. Ryo has a great, youthful personality, happy to tell us about himself when we asked and wanted to know about us. We ended up teaching him a thing or two about why Americans all know Domo arigatou via the Styx. He was amazed!

    We had a great sunny warm day to add to the already good tour. Would recommend for people who want a good mix of historical tour and food.
