Experience Details
Bursting at the seams with shops, restaurants, bars, and everything in between, Shinjuku is a haven for nightlife lovers in Tokyo. It’s the largest entertainment district in Japan boasting around 1,500 izakayas within a 1km radius of the station. Clearly, Shinjuku and izakayas go hand in hand, but Minako (your host) is here to break the mold and introduce you to lesser-known spots that will delight your senses. Your guide is a nightlife expert that has spent years touring the backstreets, hunting down hidden bars, engaging with local vendors, and getting to know the area. This tour will show you the best Shinjuku has to offer! Visit city landmarks like Golden Gai, Omoide Yokocho, Hanazono Shrine, and the newly built Kabukicho Tower. You’ll choose between 4 unique themed izakayas (more on that later), feast on authentic Japanese food, and make memories to last a lifetime. Tucked away in narrow alleyways, izakayas are hidden sanctuaries for those seeking an authentic Japanese dining experience. Irresistible aromas of crunchy karaage, crispy tempura, and sizzling yakisoba fill the air as the drinks flow and laughter fills the air. This is where you’ll encounter the essence of Japanese culture! Venture off the beaten path and uncover Shinjuku’s themed izakayas! Choose between 4 unique establishments for your after-dark adventure… Back to school: A Japanese elementary school-themed izakaya serving nostalgic school lunch foods decked out with blackboards, a principal’s office, science, music room and more. Step back in time: A multi-roomed izakaya inspired by Edo-period castle towns and Heian-period palaces. Let’s go fishing: An izakaya that takes you to the high seas! Centered around a giant fish tank where you can fish while you feast. Down the rabbit hole: An Alice in Wonderland-themed izakaya featuring sparkling chandeliers and mirrors.
