No trip to Tokyo is complete without experiencing its rich nightlife. This walking tour throws you deep into the heart of late night Shinjuku! This unique tour aims to deliver a genuine Japanese experience by giving you the opportunity to rub shoulders with the locals in a few carefully selected bars where the friendly owners and regulars personally know me and love socializing with newcomers. We will also visit Piss Alley, but don't worry, its days as a spot for people to relieve themselves has long gone - instead it houses a series of small shops. Shinjuku at night might seem a little intimidating and confusing to explore on your own, however accompanied with me, learn some interesting facts and will be guaranteed to have a night to remember.

Last year we made four day tours with Satoko to discover Tokyo and it was a fantastic experience. She has a great knowledge and unrivalled love for traditional Japanese culture but she is also familiar with modern Japan, being able to offer the best of both worlds. She was a friendly and enjoyable company from the human point of view, very generous with her time and always trying to give more than a simple touristic package. She is an invaluable asset to feel part of Japan which we decisively recommend to anybody wishing to visit Japan. We stayed in touch since then, and when we go back to Japan, it will not be without Satoko since she is an extra gift on top of the beauties of her country. Don't hesitate, go for Satoko and enjoy!

Gave Gaijin Tours my wish-to-see list and they quickly shaped it into a practical plan. Of course, you can't see all of Tokyo in a day but I definitely got a good dose of this fabulous city - thanks Gaijin Tours!

Uri was a terrific guide and good company. Piss Alley and Golden Gai was a good opportunity to see behind the veil of the formal Japan and visit some amazing (tiny) bars. Highly recommended.

Satoko was originally recommended to me by a coworker who had a positive experience. The Tsukiji market tour she gave me and my now husband was one of the highlights of our first visit to Tokyo. I've used Gaijin Tours since for a recent corporate offsites (New Year's Shrine tour) and custom tours as well. My father and step-mother have also used Gaijin Tours! Satoko is incredibly knowledgable, and sincerely interested in sharing Japan with visitors. I also find the tour prices highly reasonable.

Haruka did an amazing job organizing our tour. She is very professional and very knowledgeable about Tokyo. It's nice because she grew up in Tokyo, so it was interesting to have a local perspective of the city. She customized our tour to our preferences and brought us to lesser-known places that were interesting to see. Even after the tour, she provided more places for us to visit and the best to mail postcards to our friends back home. Everywhere we went, we received an explanation surround the places, from the shrines to city landmarks to daily living. We learned it all! I highly recommend Haruka. If this is your first time, book a tour with Haruka. She speaks both fluent English and Japanese and she is the best person to guide you through the amazing city of Tokyo.
