Kanpai Tokyo: Shinjuku Drinks and Neon Nights Evening Tour

by Urban Adventures Duration 2h 30m Features animals Free cancellation available No booking or credit card fees
per adult Price is $99

Shinjuku, Tokyo’s entertainment town, is where locals go to grab a bite and a drink after dark. Our evening will kick off at a Japanese izakaya-style eatery for happy hour. As is a favourite pastime for many Japanese, you’ll start the night off spending some leisurely time chatting with your fellow tourmates over drinks and snacks. Once we’re warmed up, we’ll meander through Omoide Yokocho, a collection of alleyways full of tiny bars and eateries.

Get a peek at the different types of food joints the locals usually eat at, from yakitori restaurants and soba shops to cafes and bars. Should you like to come visit again on your own time, Omoide Yokocho can be a great place to sit and eat elbow-to-elbow with the businessmen and see how they unwind after working hours. Our tour takes us onward to Kabukicho, an area full to the brim with over 3,000 shops, restaurants, nightclubs, karaoke and the like. Awash in bright neon lights, Kabukicho is one of Tokyo’s most photogenic areas.

With streets filled with people and music blaring from every corner, you’re sure never to have a boring evening in Kabukicho! The evening will end in Golden Gai, a compact neighbourhood full of tiny bars that can usually only seat six to eight people at a time. It is here in Shinjuku’s most popular drinking spot where we’ll pop into one of your guide’s favourite bars and say kanpai (cheers!) over more drinks.

The only thing I would mention is that this tour is not for someone who has problems walking or doesn’t enjoy sitting and having a drink.

The tour was well organized though I wish the food stop was in the middle. We walked through and visited a number of establishments. The last one was very good and really capped off the night. In the end the group really makes it fun - if you are lucky to get a fun bunch of people then this tour is just the start of your fun night.
