What you'll do

Get ready as we show you our favorite local neighborhoods in Tokyo - in which you will probably be the only tourist. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TcmqXonnygA -- Along the JR Chuo-Line, which runs through Tokyo from west to east, we will find numerous authentic Japanese pub streets, and we will show you our favorite places there. Nishi-Ogikubo: This town is located at the western edge of the 23 central wards of Tokyo. Being one of the centers of counterculture since the 1960s, the area is home to a lot of independent businesses, artsy shops and high-end craftsmen. Near the train station you will see a large concentration of local pubs & bars, each and every one offering their own unique flavor. Asagaya: The area is home to Tokyo’s Jazz scene, and there is Jazz festival called “Asagaya Jazz streets” held annually. While on the south exit you can find a traditional Japanese shopping street, the north exit is home to large concentration of independently owned pubs, particularly in Tachi-nomi style (standing bars). Koenji: Sometimes being referred to as the “India of Japan”, the town was the center of Tokyo’s Hippie movement in the 1970s. Even today the town attracts Tokyo’s creatives, and you can find tons of second-hand shops, unique cafes, live venues scattered around the area. Some of the most authentic pubs in town can be found here as well.

Ryo & Fumi

We are two young entrepreneurs in Tokyo who came up with a new hobby which is truly a matter of our heart. We want to get you away from the touristy areas and show you the local neighborhoods that foreigners never get to visit. About us: Fumi is a hardcore Tokyo local, born & raised in the heart of this city. He was active in Sumo wrestling since childhood and was shortly before becoming a professional, but then decided to switch paths and enter the IT field. He is also working on his youtube channel, centered around introducing Japanese food. Ryo, on the other hand, lived & traveled outside of Japan for multiple years. Back in Tokyo, he is able to see Japanese society from multiple perspectives. Being raised trilingual, he has some experience freelancing as a Tokyo-tour guide as well, right after quitting his corporate career.
