    About

    Want to try the hippest Izakaya bars in Shibuya but don't know where to start from? Then, leave it to our GuruGuru Guide who knows everything about Shibuya!

    The guide will choose from the variety of Izakaya bars in Shibuya and take you to the two of their favourite ones.
    Feel free to ask your guides about local travel tips as they themselves are all travellers!

    Our GuruGuru Guide has a deep knowledge about the Izakaya bars in Shibuya and also, all our guides are travellers themselves. It also would be a great opportunity to communicate with Japanese unique travellers. You might have a chance to have an encounter with the locals.

    The Shibuya Crossing is one of the most famous landmarks in Shibuya. Do you know about the new landmark that rose up in the end of 2019?? It is the “SHIBUYA SKY”, an observation deck rising to a height of about 230 m at Shibuya Scramble Square, the tallest building in Shibuya. You will be able to have a panoramic view of the Shibuya Crossing and the city of Shibuya!

    One of the recommended drinking spots in Shibuya is Hyakkendana! Originally, this area was reconstructed after the Great Kanto Earthquake in 1923. This area has one of a kind of atmosphere due to some love hotels in the immediate vicinity of the long-established Izakaya bars ever since the war. It is the hidden drinking spot for adults which you must check out in Shibuya! If you go with the guide, you will freely experience the hidden bars such as a standing bar which offers the rare Sake and seasonal food from Fukushima.

    Nonbei Yokocho is one of our recommended drinking spots in Shibuya! It is a good old drinking area with about 40 tiny Japanese Izakaya bars of less than 10 square meters each, along the JR Yamanote Line tracks. It rose up shortly after the war in 1945. Yakitori and Oden are still popular as the specialty at Nonbei Yokocho. After the war, people used to say, “The bigger the better”. Therefore, the portion on Yakitori and Oden is still large. One of the best parts of Nonbei Yokocho is that you can enjoy chatting with the staff and other customers!

    In this plan, you can choose from different guides such as photographers, artists, musicians, etc as all our guides are travellers themselves. Pick up your favorite guide and enjoy one of a kind bar hopping experience in the hippest night spot in Shibuya!

      Yukino was an awesome guide! Friendly, open-minded and flexible. She knows many good bars around Shibuya. She gave me a wide range of choices depends on what I felt like having then. I really loved the bars she took me to, especially the one with Japanese SAKE was fantastic! I could try several different kinds of SAKE which were quite rare ones there. I also enjoyed the conversation with her very much. It turned out she has been to some places that I want to go, so she gave me useful information about it!

      Yukino-san was fun and accommodating. We both like traveling so we had a lot of common ground and it was easy to talk to her about a wide range of topics. She took us to a cool place full of locals for the bar hopping, with a great atmosphere and great food. Yukino-san made the tour very enjoyable and I would go on her tour again if given the opportunity.

      Shibuya is so familiar town to me. Thanks to her, although I might have drunk more than 100 times in this town, I discovered unknown part of Shibuya. In addition, Yukino is sincere and interesting guide. That was quite exciting experience.
