Kabukicho Izakaya Food Tour and Golden Gai Experience in Shinjuku
From US$139.00

Tokyo is the world’s largest metropolis, famous for its cutting-edge trends and pulsating nightlife. During this insider’s 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 delectable street food. Sample authentic treats as you head behind the scenes on this intimate, small-group tour.

What to Expect

Tokyo, once a sleepy castle town, has ballooned into the world’s largest—and liveliest—metropolis, home to both one-of-a-kind innovations and age-old traditions. You’ll discover both traditional and modern sides to the city on this immersive, behind-the-scenes food tour, which covers authentic post-war eateries along with flashy, cutting-edge bars.

The small-group tour is limited to 12 people, guaranteeing an intimate excursion. You’ll 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 meter. 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 a complimentary nightcap.
