Itinerary

Start your tour by walking through the busy streets of Shinjuku heading straight for Omoide Yokocho (literally “Memory Lane”) as our first stop. Omoide Yokocho is rightfully named as it is littered with rustic food stalls and bars from the 1950s. Anyone of the older generation will feel as if they stepped back in time to the middle of the 20th century. Many of these spots still stay true to their roots, serving roasted giblets with beef and pork, which was a staple when food was scarce after World War II.

From there we will make our way to Kabukicho, Asia’s largest, yet safest red-light district. Learn more about this very famous area as your guide explains to you Japanese izakayas, the amazing world of karaokes and Robot restaurant as well as other hidden gems of Kabukicho. We will end our tour with a ramble through the back drinking alleys at Golden Gai

As we wander in Shinjuku’s Golden Gai neighborhood you can explore an area known for being Tokyo’s most popular spot for unique izakaya, tiny bars, and pub-nightlife. A glimpse back to what Tokyo was like during the early and middle of the 20th century; Golden Gai venues are so densely packed you can almost be in two places at once (one foot in each). Despite the run-down appearance, Golden Gai generally attracts well-off clientele and their prices match accordingly and has become one of the most expensive places to drink in the city. Golden Gai is filled with over 200 small pubs, stalls, and karaoke bars where most are only big enough for five to seven people. Boasting the most densely packed nightlife area in the world, Golden Gai will be a glimpse of Tokyo you will never forget.
