Experience Details
Omoide Yokocho, Kabukicho, and Golden Gai are the quintessential Shinjuku nightlife trifecta. Join Soma and his team of nightlife ninjas for an unforgettable night out in Tokyo’s most famous nightlife district. You’ll visit hidden bars, local watering holes, buzzy izakayas, and learn about the city after dark. Soma was a university student who thirsted for travel, but the pandemic struck. Unable to venture overseas, he turned to his backyard (Japan) for adventure! Soma searched for unique experiences, hidden gems, family-run establishments, and beyond–quickly uncovering a new passion and career path. See what Soma has to offer by joining this unforgettable experience in Tokyo’s famed nightlife quarter. Shinjuku: Tokyo’s electrifying nightlife district, filled with bars, pubs, izakayas, clubs, live music venues, and beyond.

You’ll tour Omoide Yokocho, Kabukucho, and Golden Gai–stopping for drinks and food along the way. Omoide Yokocho–also known as ‘Memory Lane’–is a nostalgic quarter lined with tiny eateries and standing bars. You'll feel like you've stepped back in time as you weave through the narrow passages and embrace the old-world charm of Japan. Enter the legendary Kabukicho, Tokyo's red-light district with a twist. Far from just its nightlife reputation, Kabukicho offers an array of quirky bars and lively food spots that fill up as soon as the sun goes down. Golden Gai is a haven for bohemian souls seeking authentic and intimate encounters. This maze of tiny bars transports you to another dimension, where you'll rub shoulders with locals and fellow adventurers from around the globe.
