Your favourite cheapos are back with a special on location recording of the “Best Of Japan Tour” in Coredo Muromachi. The tour is organised by the Nihonbashi Tourist Information Center who provide a few different tours and experiences with English speaking guides. The tour we went on is essentially a food tour with nibbles, you can hear our munching sounds on the podcast.



They also offer a few other experiences, including Tea Ceremony, Geisha and Kimono, and you can book from their website.
