This foodie walking tour of three Shinjuku neighborhoods will allow you to get a glimpse into the Showa Era. Many pubs, izakaya’s and eateries in Omoide Yokocho (literally meaning "memory lane" in English) and Golden Gai are just as they were in the 1950s in both atmosphere and menu style. You'll also get a look at the bustling world of Kabukicho at night and have the chance to try food from a local eatery famous for its southern Japan-style dishes.

    goldengaifoodtour.50_0 Omoide Yokocho ("memory lane" in Japanese) offers a nostalgic look back at the 1950s.
