Taste local flavors as you try different drinks and snacks, learning about the area from your local guide along the way. Kick off your evening at a Japanese izakaya-style gastropub for their happy hour. As this is a favorite pastime of many Japanese, spend some leisurely time chatting with your fellow tour mates over drinks and snacks. Then, meander through Omoide Yokocho, a collection of alleyways full of tiny bars and eateries. Get a peek at the different type of food joints locals usually eat at, from yakitori restaurants and soba shops to cafes and bars. If you'd like to come visit again on your own time, Omoide Yokocho is a great place to sit and eat elbow-to-elbow with local businessmen. See how they unwind after working hours. Later on, reach Kabukicho, an area full to the brim with over 3,000 shops, restaurants, nightclubs, and karaoke. Awash in bright neon lights, Kabukicho is one of Tokyo’s most photogenic areas.

Geisha Encounter: Cultural Experience at Chaya in Tokyo

3. Geisha Encounter: Cultural Experience at Chaya in Tokyo

Arrive at the ochaya where you will be greeted by geisha that are representing a number of okiya (geisha houses) in Tokyo. An ochaya, while literally meaning “tea house,” is not actually a place to go for drinking tea. An ochaya, traditionally, was a place for customer to be entertained by Geisha, with history dating as far back as the Edo Period of the Tokugawa Shogunate. Ochaya are typically very exclusive, invitation-only establishments in a hanamachi (Geisha district). As you are seated, you will be provided with information that will introduce you to the culture and history of Geisha (a tradition and practice of Japanese female entertainers that have been around for centuries). Throughout the 90 minute event, the Geisha will perform traditional dances and songs and will converse and play traditional Japanese games with guests. On some occasions, there may be English-speaking Geisha who may converse with English-speaking guests. The entertainment provided by Geisha is through the form of song, dance, games, conversation, and sometimes even poetry whilst making sure everyone’s glasses are filled. Guests may mingle with others at the ochaya, including locals who often frequent the ochaya to support the Geisha in their community. At the end of the event, guests may gather and take photos with Geisha before leaving.

What people are saying about Kantō Region

What makes me know I'll remember this tour for the rest of my life was not so much the substance of the tour but the people comprising the tour group itself (guide included). Ayaka is an amazing, down to earth guide. She along with my fellow tourists became, somehow, seasoned drinking buddies by the end of the tour. Don't be shy or anti social. Get to know your guide and your fellow tourists around the table and I can almost guarantee you'll have a great night. Also, if you end up at Bar Araku, look up at the ceiling for the purple 100 PHP bill that has a little quip about "envelopes" and know you are staring at evidence of an amazing night by all whose initials dawn that bill.

Our guide was very charming and knowledgeable. He had a very clear voice and spoke excellent English. He made the effort to show us interesting shops, such as a wood block engraving studio, which we would have missed without him.

Guide is very friendly and informative. Shared with us on other spots in Tokyo to visit.

Fun evening:)

Enjoyed learning about geisha culture and having dinner the traditional Japanese way.

This was a great way to experience Tokyo culture and nightlife
