Besides, we mainly offer small group tours (up to 8 ppl), so you can enjoy like friends. Solo traveler, friends, couple and family, all tourists are welcome. Come join us on this bar hopping adventure and together let's have a Tokyo pub crawling experience in this unique atmosphere without any cultural or language barriers!

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.

Shin was an excellent guide! Very laid back, and knowledgeable about the area. The tour was an awesome experience, and Shin took us to bars that we would never have found on our own. I would definitely recommend taking this tour with Shin!
