Tokyo Bar Hopping Tour

In this small group tour, you’ll tour the back alleyways in Tokyo’s Shinjuku district and visit three hidden Japanese bars. You’ll save time researching and planning your trip by having a guide to show you places that are usually difficult for tourists to find. Take the stress out of language barriers by having a local insider recommend which food and drink options to try and help you order.

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. You’ll be able to 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 Ebisu Yokocho alley to visit two more bars and taverns. You’ll 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.

Relaxing local experiece

Rika took us to bars ranging from obscurely local to upscale chic. In my experience of how Japanese let steam off, I met and learned about American military bases as well as how college students from the States spend their vacation. Above and beyond that,...More

where the tourist never goes

Eventhough the weather in Tokyo was more suited to fish and ducks, Ken kept us all happy and introduced us to three very different bars with very different foods. Happy that it wasn't just sushi and sashimi - not being a raw fish lover -...More

Fantastic Experience

My husband and I did this tour on our last night in Tokyo. It was a great way to end such a fantastic trip to Japan. Ken was such a wonderful host, and took us to some amazing bars that we would not have experienced...More

Very good tour of the night life around West Shinjuku and Ebisu.

Went on tour with Ken during May'18 and was very satisfied with the tour. As a foreigner you probably wouldn't be able to access these types of places just out of fear of not being able to order and not knowing your way around. Ken...More
