Tours from Gaijin Tours tend to sell out - travelers recommend booking in advance!
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.

Haruka was very professional throughout the tour of tsukiji market. She provided detailed explanation of how certain foods were used in various Japanese customs which made the tour much more interesting! She also pointed out many small details I would've missed otherwise!
