What you'll do

Having lived and worked in the vibrant and artsy city of Shimokitazawa for a majority of my adult life, I can navigate the maze of tiny bars, restaurants and stores like the back of my hand. When you take my tour, you will get to know the super local side of Shimokitazawa and get to experience everything I love about this city as a local. We will walk around the town and stop by shops and bars that are off the tourist radar. Along the way, I will be happy to explain the little intricacies of Japanese culture that make life here so interesting. For example, how to ask about something in a shop in the characteristic polite way that is inherent to the Japanese language. Shimokitazawa is a really special place and you'll never get bored of it! Can't wait to see you in Shimokitazawa!

Marina

I was raised in Texas and then moved back to Shimokitazawa. I worked in the entertainment industry as an TV talent and international film correspondent, but then left the spotlight behind to run a restaurant in Shimokitazawa with my husband. No matter how many years I spend in this city, I never get bored with what it has to offer. I would love to show these special points just for you!

Where you'll be

First, we would start with a welcome drink at my restaurant. We pride ourselves in carrying a hand-picked selection of organic Japanese wines and craft beers, but we have non-alcoholic drinks as well. After providing each member with a handmade map of the area, we will set out to our first stop.
