Tokyo: Shinjuku Drinks and Neon Nights Nightlife Tour

1. Tokyo: Shinjuku Drinks and Neon Nights Nightlife Tour

Head to Shinjuku, Tokyo’s entertainment area, and join locals as you grab a bite and a drink on a walking tour in the evening. 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. With streets filled with people and music blaring from every corner, you are sure never to have a boring evening in Kabukicho. End your evening in Golden Gai, a compact neighborhood full of tiny bars that can usually only seat six to eight people at a time. It is here in Shinjuku’s most popular drinking spot where you will stumble upon one of your guide’s favorite bars and say kanpai (cheers!) over more drinks. From here, your guide can either give you directions back to your hotel, your next destination, or leave you chatting through the night with new friends.

Tokyo Food Tour: 3-Hour Culinary Adventure

4. Tokyo Food Tour: 3-Hour Culinary Adventure

Tokyo’s vibrant food culture is legendary, and is one of the many reasons why people flock to the Japanese capital. On this 3-hour Tokyo tour you’ll join a local guide to dive into the city’s food scene, tasting some of the city’s best dishes. Get a truly local perspective as your local guide explains the history of the food you’re tasting and the places you visit, sharing personal experiences and food related family traditions and customs during the tour. Begin in Yakitori Alley, near Yurakucho, an area with many casual bar-style restaurants and the birthplace of yakitori, one of many Japanese people’s favourite appetizers. Enjoy a drink of sake or a local beer, then sample yakitori at one of the many local restaurants, each with their own “tare” (sauce) mixed with their secret ingredients. Travel to Tsukishima to visit “Monja” Street, where “Monja-Yaki” is said to have originated, a type of Japanese pan-fried batter with various ingredients. You’ll have the chance to watch your food being cooked, chat with the cook, and devour your Monja-yaki fresh from the hot plate.  Take a quick stroll through Ginza, where you can find great confectionery shops and learn about the rich variety of traditional Japanese sweets — and, best of all, choose one to try! Usually made of rice and red beans, these sweets change based on the ingredients available at each time of year, and even their shapes are inspired by what you can find in nature during that season. Your tour ends here but don’t forget to ask for tips on what else to see do and eat during your stay. Fancy a cool local bar or a karaoke place? Your guide is happy to recommend  favourite spots so that your night can continue. Equally, your guide can help with directions back to your accommodation, or you can return to the start point with them.

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.
