    Curious to drink with locals in Tokyo???

    Don't miss out on visiting the unique Izakaya bars of Ginza, Yurakucho and Shimbashi areas!

    Shimbashi is also known as "Salary-Men Town", so it's one of the most popular drinking areas among Japanese salary-men. After work, they gather in small local Izakaya bars and enjoy drinking & chatting together in a cosy atmosphere.

    In this tour, our cool GuruGuru Guide will take you to 2 selected Izakaya bars and show you how to enjoy it as the locals do. Each area is quite accessible and is at walking distance of 5-10 mins from one another which is perfect for bar hopping!

    Also, you may ask your guide to give you some travel tips about Japan as GuruGuru guides are themselves all travelers and would love to share their experiences with you. Let's discover unique Izakaya bars and enjoy eating, drinking and chatting together!

    Lastly, we would like to inform you our original 5 measures against COVID-19.

    1. Try to wash our hands frequently

    2. Let the guides wear a mask during the plan

    3. Dish out the food on small plates in a restaurant

    • Sachiko Ahunwan
      Reiko knows a izakaya with delicious meals. And it is only in Ginza that you can visit the back alley shrine. Reiko is very familiar with history, so it is a very enjoyable tour. Highly recommended.
