A guided tour to some of Tokyo's most beautiful night spots and famous entertainment disticts


Tokyo is beautiful by day but it really sparkles by night. We will begin this tour by visiting Shinjuku and the Tokyo Metropolitan Gov. building's observatory for a night bird view of the city. From there we will go to Omoide-yokocho or Memory Lane, a street with traditional food and drink spots dating from the post war era, that is favored by many businessmen for unwinding after a busy day. We will stroll down the narrow alley and enjoy it's unique atmosphere of the 50-es. We can stop at one of them for some Yaki-tori and a glass of cold beer.

Next we will go by Kabuki-cho, an area famous with its entertainment spots, bright city lights and music streaming from every corner. Our last stop will be Shibuya, the place of the famous scrambled crossing and the Faithful Dog Hachiko monument. It's busy, bursting with life and light cityscape is amazing and gives a good idea of how the young generation enjoys the evening.

A Recent Review of this tour

Makayla was a wonderful, warm, friendly, and fun guide. She is fluent in English and was very easy to understand. She is very knowledgeable and provided customized opportunities. If she didn't know the answers to certain questions, she went out of her way to research and find out for us. She also was very flexible and readily made accommodations for the needs of our group. We highly recommend.
