What you'll learn in this food tours class:

In the past decade, the East Village has transformed from a post-punk wasteland to an east-coast outpost of Japanese culture. From Ramen to Squid, Bubble Tea to Curry, we'll explore all the internationally influenced food Little Tokyo has to offer.

Which fast food chains have their only American outposts in Little Tokyo? What's the difference between traditional and modern Japanese desserts? What are the three primary flavors of Japanese street food? The answers to these questions and more as you learn to eat in the neighborhood where New York and Tokyo meet.

We'll meet in Manhattan, in front of 101 Astor Place by the Keith Haring sculpture. 

The cost of this tour includes four tastings of sweet and savory snacks. Vegetarian options are available.

Still have questions? Ask the community.

If you're looking for a refund or class credit, you need to back out of the class a full week before it starts. (No exceptions!) We know it's draconian, but since we aren't charging an arm and a leg and have to buy all our materials in advance, it's kinda hard to deal with last-minute bailings.

We also can't transfer registrations to a future session of the class. Sorry!

Instead of dropping out if you have a schedule conflict, a better idea is to ask around and see if any of your friends want the spot. We can't give you a refund less than a week out, even if there's a wait list for the class. 

Regarding bad weather, we generally only cancel classes if the subway system stops running. If traveling during snowstorms might be an issue for you, please take this into account before registering for a class.

Umami: A Yummy Tour of Little Tokyo
Reviewed by Michelle G. on 9/25/2018
The tour was really interesting and informative. The distance covered is really short so it is pretty much accessible for anyone although there are 2 stops where you do go down some stairs. I think from a food perspective what you taste is very good, however the amount is very small so I would consider this a walking tour to learn about food versus a walking tour for trying food. For anyone interested in learning about neighborhoods in NY I would recommend it.

The tour was a fun and educational talk about the history of the neighborhood and how it came to be little Tokyo. Lots of fun restaurants, shops, and hole in the walls to discover! We got to try many different foods known in Japan- both sweet and savory! Overall, a great and compact experience :)

I am sorry I had to rush off ... I did enjoy the course up to that point - not sure what followed in the way of food -- the history was good and the host was very informative
