Haru gets high marks for taking us to places that we would never have gone to on our own. We loved the Drunkard's Alley bar and also the Curry Bread. She was very accommodating and flexible (she took us for a quick visit to a Gaming Arcade). However, what kept us from giving her the best ratings was: 1) She got lost trying to find the Izakaya - we walked up and down the same street a few times and lost 15 minutes as a result; and 2) the Izakaya she wanted to take us to and its back up were both closed, so it seemed that we ended up going to a random open Izakaya that I think she'd never been to.
My family and I were very fortunate to experience the Tokyo night food tour with Maciej. He gave us insight into Japanese history, culture and food that was both fascinating and thought provoking. He took us to restaurants that we never would have discovered on our own (or would have been to nervous to try because of the language issue). The evening ended too soon. As with all of the past Context Tours we have taken, our travels were enhanced and enriched by the expertise, knowledge of a local guide. In Maciej's case, being fluent in Japanese was invaluable! Thank Context and Maciej!
Our guide had little organization, no pre-planned sites to eat at, and aimless walking. He was the first to grab the food.
