Kabukicho Izakaya Food Tour and Golden Gai Experience in Shinjuku

Tokyo is the world’s largest metropolis, famous for its delectable cuisine and bustling nightlife. On this restaurant crawl, you’ll discover the one-of-a-kind charms of two of Tokyo’s liveliest neighborhoods, the fashion and food hub of Shinjuku and the entertainment district of Kabukicho, home to robot bars and street food. Your tour group size is limited to a small group, making for an intimate experience, and it includes all tastings. 

What to Expect
Meet your guide in Shinjuku, one of Tokyo’s trendiest neighborhoods. The food and fashion hub boasts the world’s highest number of bars per square foot. You’ll skip the tourist traps and head to the time-warp enclave of Omoide Yokocho (“Memory Lane”), where you can devour authentic menus preserved from post-war Japan alongside local clientele.

Learn about Tokyo’s world-famous nightlife trends in the entertainment district of Kabukicho, where you’ll see everything from robot bars to karaoke clubs. Sample delicious classic dishes like ramen noodles and sushi and head to Golden Gai—the densest concentration of bars—to wind down the action-packed food adventure with an included nightcap.
