What you'll do

Join a like-minded Local Host to get acquainted with your new city and discover the real Tokyo that you won’t find in a guidebook or on the tourist trail, but you will find by getting to know the city’s people!Read more +

Whether you’d like to immerse yourself in the neighbourhood you’ve recently moved to, or you’re hoping to find a side of Tokyo’s personality that matches your hobbies and interests, your host will design a personalised experience that suits your requirements. 

Moving to Tokyo may be a completely new cultural experience for you, and you may not be completely sure of the city’s cultural practices, its do’s and don’ts or the local etiquette - it may be the opposite of what you are used to! So your host will share their priceless insight into Japanese culture, share with you the etiquette that you absolutely need to know and help you ease into life in a new culture. 

If you’d like to really get acquainted with the area you now call home, your local will design an experience in your neighbourhood, which they themselves also know well. Discover its personality, the local institutions which are beloved by residents and the izakaya and eateries where you’ll go to eat authentic local food and share drinks with the locals. 

Ask any questions you have about the area, get recommendations for places to eat, shop and relax and get to know its culture and history as you explore the streets and stop by various eateries, bars and venues.

As you explore the city like locals, you’ll be able to ask any questions you have about what life is really like, discover the off the beaten path side of Tokyo and get properly acquainted with your new home!
