Good music? Cool bars? Free shots? Cool crowd? Solid hosts? It literally has them all. Tokyo Pub Crawl was such a fun time. It starts and ends early enough for you to have fun and still catch last train if you want. If not, it's the perfect pregame for the classic 5am party scene in Tokyo. There's a lot of foreigners there so it's a great chance to meet new people. They did an event when I went once that helped get the conversation going and I hear they do cool different events pretty often. There's also a couple locals that showed up as well which is awesome to get out there and practice your Japanese. All in all, the Tokyo night life is absolutely insane and the Tokyo Pub Crawl is a great introduction to it.…

Moved into Japan a little before the Pandemic. Was planning to go but unfortunately they shut down for a year and half. But finally finally they popped back up on my radar and I had to finally give it a shot. It did not dissapoint. Halloween was really fun, so I had to come back to another one. Thanksgiving i think. It was fun too. Host organizers were so friendly and they even helped me find old photos they forgot they took but didnt upload and was kind of enough to send it to me. Great memories. Love these guys.…

I guess I’m not surprised that this wasn’t the best pub crawl I’ve ever gone on, but it was just an odd experience. First off, it’s a huge group. I’m talking 100+ people. Of that, 80% are dudes. The entire group (again, not surprisingly) are tourists, and they range from 20 years old to 40+ years old. The leaders are all travelers who wound up in Tokyo and do a pretty good job at rallying the crew, helping you meet other people and getting you drunk. The bars you go to all effectively feel as if they are opened weekly exclusively for the pub crawl, as they’re all pretty low quality and totally empty other than the pub crawl attendees. My biggest wish for this tour was that it felt more like a real night out in Tokyo - there was no Izikaya, no karaoke, no Japanese experience. You get to the last spot (a nightclub) by 11pm, which is pretty early, and then the group pretty much disperses. They could have done a bit more to recommend other good spots in Rappongi to go to after on your own for a more typical Tokyo night out.…

Hi Cblotsky, Thanks for writing us a review. We’re gonna try to respond to most of your points. So you went back in February and you just wrote this review in October, so it would be difficult for us to remember which event it was, But I believe it might of been on our last big events, Because it was at the onset our covid shut downs in March. We can’t deny or confirm the ratio, just gotta look photos. I guess we are all weirdo in a way. so we’ll take that as a compliment. All the main organizers have been living in Japan for over 15 years and co host who is Japanese himself, so it wasnt a traveller who just decided to start a pub crawl while travelling here. We all had other jobs for about a decade here before we began the events. Dunno if that really matters just wanted to clarify. We pretty much advertise what we are on our website, less of a traditional “pub crawl”. More of a massive party move to many bars and clubs. Thanks for noticing we do really put effort on our organizing skills. Yes we designed it this way because we start bit early, and most bars and clubs will most likely be only pub crawlers because we bring on average of 120 people, and very few can places accommodate that many people, sorry tokyo is small. Tokyo bars and clubs dont really get started till 12 midnight(as do most other nightlife metropolises) But we try to create an atmosphere where you feel like you’re partying with at least 50 new friends To be honest, there are tons and tons of smaller services in Tokyo that would of shown you the type of experience you wanted, and we recommended everyone do their research before attending our events. Just so you could manage your expectations, The name Tokyo Pub Crawl is a bit of a misnomer because you might think of something more quaint when comparing to other cities, but Tokyo Massive Mobile Party doesnt have quite the right ring to it, haha. All kidding aside, sorry we didnt meet your expectations, I hope you were able to find those smaller local events and fit what you were looking for.

One should contact the traveller if there is cancellation of the event, which was my case. I went to departure place and no one was there.
