AUTHENTIC Japanese STREET FOOD Tour of Sunamachi - Tempura, Oden, Yakitori, Sake | Tokyo, JapanIn late January of 2019, I had my first international travel experience of the year when I flew from my hometown of Miami to Tokyo, Japan! I spent twelve incredible days exploring the cities of Tokyo, Kyoto, and Osaka, as well as a few of the prefectures, or states, just outside of Tokyo. What I saw and experienced during my Japanese travels blew my mind and I cannot wait to share my epic experiences with you! Book this Tour: https://www.byfood.com/experiences/sunamachi-ginza-street-food-tour-44 Follow Tokyo by Food on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/tokyobyfood/ On my third day in Japan, I headed out on an authentic Japanese street food tour, this time of the Sunamachi Ginza area, were I tried lots of traditional Japanese foods with my new friend Hiro from Tokyo by Food! Come along with us as I eat my way through Sunamachi Ginza! My Film Making Kit ► https://kit.com/davidsbeenhere Sunamachi Ginza is a 670-meter-long shopping district that’s filled with lots of different types of street food and family-run businesses and is a fantastic place to go to experience a slice of local Japanese life, as many tourists don’t come here. It was established roughly 60 or 70 years ago and is known as a hidden gem for foodies. I couldn’t wait to eat! First up, we headed straight to a stall selling a variety of tempura. I started with a fried tempura fritter that contained shrimp, onion, and other vegetables. It was crunchy and juicy and had a delicious sauce on it! It was also super sweet and was one of the best tempuras I’ve ever had! It only cost 120 Yen, or $1 U.S. Next, we went to a famous shop for a dish called inarizushi, which is a ball of sushi rice that contains soy sauce and is stuffed into deep-fried tofu. This shop makes over 400 inarizushi by hand per day! It was very sweet on the outside and absolutely delicious. I wouldn’t have even known the outside was tofu, and it had a sort of honey flavor to it. They’re filling, so I suggest sharing them if you’re planning on eating more foods! You get three inarizushi for 150 Yen, or $1.35 U.S. We passed by lots of secondhand shops and delicatessens on our way to a miso shop. Miso is a fermented soybean paste that is a very popular ingredient in Japanese cuisine. We tried a few kinds; they had the consistency of mashed potatoes, but had pure miso flavor. They were great! I loved the one that fermented for three years! Next, we got a deep-fried tuna minced cutlet from another stall, which I drizzled with a delicious sauce. It was soft and kind of mushy on the inside and crunchy on the outside. I loved the texture, and it was a little sweet as well! The onions throughout with the soft, minced tuna, was fantastic. After that, we got some oden, which is a traditional Japanese hot pot dish that contains lots of different items, including a spicy cod fish cake and daikon radish. It’s a very popular dish during the winter. The fish cake was moist and juicy and also contained carrots and onions. The daikon was so soft and had absorbed a lot of the broth it had been cooked in. It was almost like a miso soup! At our next stop, we got some yakitori, or skewered and grilled meat. Of the seven varieties, I got the pork neck and chicken thigh with spring onion. The pork neck had a really nice, smoky flavor from the charcoal and was very juicy. It was my first time having pork neck and I loved it! The chicken thigh was also juicy with a nice, teriyaki-like sauce on it. The spring onion was crunchy and delicious as well! Then, I moved on to sake, which was super dry and a little sweet. Drinking it on the street, surrounded by locals, was amazing! Our next dish was taiyaki, which is a fish-shaped cake that’s stuffed with red bean paste. I tried the outer portion, which was super crunchy, as an appetizer, and then I moved on to the main dish. It was hot and crunchy on the outside, and tasted like a waffle. Delicious! Our final stop was a tea shop that sells a variety of high-quality green tea. I made some myself. It was beautiful and delicious. It was very different from other green teas I’ve had in my life!
