What you'll do

Dive into the whirlwind of Tokyo by night, experiencing its unique bar culture as you hop between ramshackle izakaya bars and standing tachinomiya taverns - it won’t be long before you’re cheering ‘kanpai!’ with noisy locals over cups of sake. Discover that Japanese drinking culture is more about the food that goes with those drinks, as your host effortlessly orders plates of grilled gyoza dumplings and karaage (Japanese fried chicken). Then from tiny yokocho (alleyways) which feel like you’ve stepped back in time, you could throw yourself into your own private booth in an ultra-modern karaoke bar. And from midnight snacking to midnight shopping; dazzled by the LED-lit screens of Akihabara, you could even go shopping if the mood strikes!

Where you’ll go

Where you’ll go all depends on your style! From glitzy Ginza in the heart of Tokyo, with its sleek cocktail bars and the Kabuki-za Theater where you could catch a traditional Japanese dance performance, to Roppongi, the buzzing nightlife district which is known for its all-night karaoke bars (and the 24 hour ramen joints you’ll need to visit afterward!), Tokyo has a district for every mood. Shinjuku is a maze of yokocho - lantern-lit alleyways bursting with quirky izakaya - and you could spend your whole night in  Omoide Yokocho, or break away from the sake and snacking to hit Akihabara Electric Town, a pocket of Shinjuku that’s a shopping paradise for electronics, and becomes a kaleidoscope of LED-lights after dark.
