Looking for a City Manager for Food Tour in Tokyo


Hi there,


My name is Michael MOU, I am the Regional Manager Asia for the company of Secret Food Tour registered under Essor Limited. I lived in Hong Kong to overlook & set up most food tours in Asia such as Bangkok, Hanoi & Hong Kong.


We are a British company exclusively doing food tour only in various cities, please refer to the following website for more details :


We are keen to set up a food tour in Tokyo and are looking for a City Manager to assist the set up, planning and running the tour. The City Manager will work causally at home with flexible hours and shall cover the following :


1) Initial set up of the Food Tour

Design the itinerary for the food tour, it will be around a 3 hours walking tour with tastings of 5-6 kinds of Japanese food in a selected area / neighourbood. I will come to Tokyo to assist the planning and set up, our experience told us that it normally will get all things sorted out with 7 days.


During the set up, the City Manager will be the one to suggest the selected area, suggested food to be tasted and routing of walking within these 3 hours. To ensure the interest and success of the tour, there should be a good balance of walking and eating with some interesting stories about the food & food store, eating culture and the area.  Our time line to get the tour ready and launched before end of September, 2018



2) Monitor daily booking

Once the tour has been planned and confirmed, our team will upload this product to our website and start to promote and sell through various channels as well as social media. It will be our job to sell and promote, you do not need to worry about the business. We will have wechat, email and booking tools for you, so you only need to check if any booking on daily basis.  There may be cases that some corporate guest will send email to you checking if you can arrange private tour for them, it will be your responsible to reply them directly. Normally you only need to check email and spend around 1-2 hours per day on doing this.


3) Running the tour

Normally the City Manager will run the tour, however you can also pay or train up other free-lance guide to assist you if you are not available.  You should be the one to design the content, stories & commentary of this tour. It is ensure the guide will show up and run the tour in the best service level. The tour will normally accommodate from 1 pax to 10 pax, depending on seating and size of food store, you will be the one to decide the maximum number for each tour.


4) Remuneration

We will pay the City Manager the following :

Fixed monthly salary at US$500 (telegraphic transfer to your bank account end of the month)

Per tour at US$60 ( telegraphic transfer to your bank account end of the month)

* There company will provide a bankcard to the City Manager with certain amount of cash, this is for your paying of food cost of tours. The card will be refilled with cash by the Finance department on regular basis.


In the very beginning, we do not expect too many tours since it requires time to promote and word by mouth.  To give you an idea, we are running about 15-20 tours in Bangkok, Hanoi and Hong Kong per month, however tours in Europe & USA are running on a daily basis.


If you are interested in this job and willing to take a try, please contact me by email or wechat or skype as follows :

I am planning to make a trip to Tokyo as soon as I receive applications for interview. I am planning to stay 5-7 days to finalize the post as well as the tour then.  


Thank you for your attention.


Michael MOU
