What to Expect

Do you like to drink alcohol? Are you curious about Japanese unique bars which you can't find any other countries?
Why don't you join my unique bar-hopping tour? There are two types of bars. One is small old bars, but feel comfortable and nostalgy of 50's. You can have a conversation with the locals and salary men. The other is themed bars, one of the most famous bar is Robot Resturant in Kabukityo, Shinjuku. Ninjya Akasaka is also famous, all the staff in a Ninjya costume and shows you some Ninjya magics. Urei (ghost) in Kichijoji, Alcatraz E.R in Shibuya Penguin Bar in Ikebukuro and e.t.c.
The tour starts from one of small bars( Izakaya) in the memorial lane in Shinjuku and then I take you to the second bar you picked from the list .My time is limited, so you can stay or come back to your hotel is your choice.

“ Definitely a worth it ”

It was a fun experience getting to know the drinking scene of Tokyo. The people you meet while doing it is just fantastic. I would recommend this to anyone. Michiko-San is such a nice lady. She tells you the history of the areas you go drinking at.

“ Unique Bar Hopping Experience ”

My husband and I had a totally unique experience with Michiko that I don't think could have been accomplished without a Tokyoite. It was our first hours in Tokyo and we got to experience a part of Shinjuku like a local. It was definitely a fun and memorable evening. We had a quiet pleasant time at our first stop in fancier izakaya and then went for a walk around Shinjuku to see Godzilla, sit with the robots for some pictures, Kabukicho, and Omoide Yokocho(Memory Lane). We then headed to another izakaya, I believe to be in Memory Lane, which we had to climb up a narrow steep stairwell to get to the upstairs area and were joined by two locals, total strangers which I hear is common, for an even more memorable night. Then off to Golden Gai to experience the drinking scene there. We are not big party goers and drinkers but enjoy an occasional drink with friends and so I think despite what the night might sound like it could be enjoyed by all. We got to experience the "Japanese" small plates, their beers, and shochu and the ambience. Thank you Michiko for an experience we will always remember.

“ Tour was great!! ”

The tour with Michiko was great. we spent a little time in one of the yakitori bars under the tracks of Shibuya. It was a nice hole in the wall type of place. I was able to eat good yakitori and drink good sake. The best part was that Michiko was able to help me communicate with the other customers that were eating there. The second place we went to was Alcatraz Theme restaurant. It was a very interesting place. I was able to try a lot of weird things. If your traveling solo or in a group, Michiko is a good person to help show you around.

“ Great Evening Pub and Restaurant Tour ”

Michiko was a terrific addition to our Tokyo vacation! She met us as planned at our hotel and returned us to our hotel. Her command of English was very good, not perfect, but we never had any real language barrier problems. She knows Kubichiko and related areas like the back of her hand, made a handful of detours to facilitate some things we saw on the way (Godzilla!) and otherwise handled us and the Japanese pub owners with aplomb! We would definitely ask for her by name the next time we are in Tokyo!

Michiko was a wonderful tour guide! - I was only in Tokyo for a 30 hours layover. I wanted to see the city at night. She was very gracious in meeting me a little later then normal time at my hotel. She was very knowledgable in the city history and culture. I would highly-recommend her if you are visiting Tokyo!
