Experience Details
The alternative western districts of Nakano, Koenji, and Asagaya are undeniably cool places to hang out during the day. Kind of nerdy but wholesome with its local vibes, Nakano is a miniature hub for all things manga and anime related, a stomping ground for otaku culture. Koenji is the cooler suburb a little way along, filled with edgy live music venues and vintage stores a-plenty. Meanwhile, Asagaya is an unassuming residential hub, where locals hunt and gather, meeting friends and going about their day in the Asagaya Pearl Center (the main shotengai shopping street). As the evening ticks on, these western districts of Tokyo offer some awesome alternative nightlife. Get a taste of the food and drinking culture in suburban Tokyo and jump on a Tokyo Izakaya Food Tour to experience a night out like a local. You’ll meet at JR Koenji Station, then plot your plan of attack over a drink with your friendly local guide. Prepare yourself for an authentic night out in the western suburbs, where you’ll enjoy some delicious food with some casual drinks at some locally-run Tokyo izakaya bars. Or, you can opt-in for an all-out nomihoudai drinking extravaganza, an all-you-can-drink experience to start off the evening right! See where the night takes you, as all itineraries are totally flexible depending on the interests and needs of your group, keeping everyone’s food preferences and drinking ability in mind. You’ll be in safe hands for an amazing alternative night out during a Tokyo Izakaya Food Tour, but be warned: this is an affordable night out, not a glamorous one. In fact, it’s a genuine night on the town for locals, where small bars and Tokyo izakaya in the outer suburbs are unashamedly grungy and small. But still, they offer an intimate atmosphere you won’t find anywhere else! Soak up this immersive experience, as it’s your chance to see another side to Tokyo during this amazing, personalized Tokyo Izakaya Food Tour.
