What to Expect
Your evening begins by meeting your tour guide and starting the small group tour (up to eight people) in Shinjuku’s popular food alley Omoide Yokocho. This is where locals typically hang out and have a drink after work in Tokyo. Sample both food and drink in the backstreet Izakaya bars, with lots of traditional dishes to choose from like sake, local beer, and Yakitori (grilled chicken skewers). After the first bar, the next stop is Shibuya’s Kabukicho alley to visit more bars and taverns. Taste Tokyo local cuisine, hear live music, play games and take part in quizzes. It’s a great way to visit Tokyo’s hidden bars, meet locals, and enjoy a stress-free evening out in Tokyo without any language obstacles.

Our guide Shin was very good and laid back. He definitely knows how to make the environment social so that everyone can relax and have a good time. If you are traveling solo this is a good way to meet new people.
