Let’s start from the best Izakayas, Japanese style tapas, in Omoide Yokocho wherein there are over 70 Izakayas in this tiny but nice old atmosphere alley. Most locals patronize these places. They serve terrifically delicious Japanese dishes washed down with beer, Japanese sake and/or other booze.

And I will take you to next city called Kabuki-cho. Let’s enjoy pleasant standing bars that serve Japanese style deep fried skewers. You can witness the actual night life of Japan.

At the end of the tour, we will be going to the bar in the bar district, Golden Gai, which is famous for its time-period sub cultures located in buildings that elicits the time-period themes portrayed and wherein there are over 200 bars to go around to.
So what are you waiting for! Let’s go and meet a lot of colorful and exciting people. These are the best places to enjoy your night life in Shinjuku!

Hi everyone, I’m Yoshi, a big Izakaya lover! Izakaya is a mix of Japanese restaurant and bar, like tapas. They serve traditional and yummy Japanese dishes and we, Japanese, normally start to drink from those Izakayas first. I have explored Izakayas in Tokyo for more than 15 years and visited more than 500 of them. Actually, Shinjuku is one of the biggest Izakaya sanctuary in Tokyo. However it would be difficult to pick the best Izakaya in there by yourself because of the sheer number to choose from. So I’m your Izakaya hopping guru. Let’s explore Izakayas in Shinjuku together! It’s my pleasure to share my experience and how to enjoy the Tokyo night life!

I was very skeptical about this tour I had never done a Airbnb experience before and let me tell you! I will only do Airbnb experiences when I travel. The knowledge that I gained from this tour in a foodies Paradise will forever stick with me! We went down an ally called memory lane! We had amazing hotate (scallops)! Among other Oishii desu ( delicious) food! If you are a foodie and want to experience Japanese food like a local this is an absolute must!

This tour was awesome! Yoshi was a warm and welcoming guide and made sure everyone was having a good time. The private room we had at the izakaya in Piss Alley made it easy to talk to others in the group. Yoshi’s food recommendations were perfect and we enjoyed a variety of amazing food. We were also able to visit a great standing bar, as well as other bars, and even got to got a little tour of the red light district. Yoshi was very knowledgeable about the area, told great stories, and took very good care of all of us on the tour. I would definitely do this tour again and would recommend it to anyone! You really haven’t visited Japan without a night in Shinjuku’s back alleys, but it can intimidating without the right guide. Yoshi’s knowledge and friendly personality made it the complete experience. Thanks, Yoshi!
