Tokyo: Bar Hopping Tour in Shibuya

2. Tokyo: Bar Hopping Tour in Shibuya

Your tour begins in front of one of Tokyo’s most iconic sites, the Shibuya Crossing. This frenetic pedestrian crossing is the busiest in the world. Use the opportunity to take photos surrounded by the buildings of Shibuya as hundreds of people cross the street. At the first bar you’ll get a taste of Japanese beer alongside local grilled delicacies. Afterward, follow your guide through a ‘yokocho’ (indoor alleyway) down a street that is home to 30 ‘Izakayas’ (Japanese bars). You’ll encounter plenty of locals as they unwind after work. Izakayas tend to be small, intimate bars, but on this tour you’ll have reserved seating for enjoying local food and beverages. Follow the bar crawl through various stops as you sample world-famous Wagyu beef, Sake, beef sushi and melt-in-your-mouth Kobe beef. Vegetarian/vegan menus are also available.
