FOOD EXPERIENCE
Eat like a local in Shinjuku

A visit to Shinjuku is an absolute must! It’s the neighborhood that best represents the city, bustling and lively, with impressive skyscrapers, and neon signs everywhere. This visit will take you through the highlights of Shinjuku for an unforgettable experience.

Take a walk in one of the most famous and colorful districts of Tokyo, visiting:

Omoide Yokocho with its countless small eateries

The gleaming Kabukicho

The old-style Golden Gai and its tiny bars.

Enjoy snacks and Japanese food at some izakaya.

Every day at 16:00.

Small-group walks: min 1 / max 6 participants.

 

Home to the world’s busiest station, Shinjuku is a major transportation hub and is filled with office buildings, skyscrapers and department stores of all kinds.
Two million passengers pass through the station every day. Many workers, before returning home after work, spend a few hours in the area’s many restaurants, bars or stores.
Not surprisingly, the neighborhood is also home to one of the city’s largest red-light districts, the colorful and vibrant Kabukicho.
Start the walk in front of Shinjuku station and move to Omoide Yokocho, or “Memory Lane” (also friendly called “Piss Lane”), a narrow alley home to countless small, old-dated restaurants selling Yakitori and other Japanese specialties.
Then explore the wonders of Shinjuku starting from Kabukicho and the nearby Golden Gai, a small district made of old two-story buildings filled with tiny bars. Bars line the narrow streets of the neighborhood; each bar has its style and it’s really fun to admire their signs and style as you walk through the cramped, semi-dark streets.

We had an enjoyable tour. I had been to Shinjuku before, but never through the lens of a local. Our storyteller Dean provided a unique experience that made us feel like we were locals. We explored side street tiny izakayas with traditional Japanese cuisine and shopped at a small local store. Overall, a great experience combined with value!
