What you'll do

Japan is a rare country that uses both the Christian era and the Japanese era. Showa(After 2nd World War)~ Heisei ~Reiwa(will be Olympic era)

We'll visit Hidden Reiwa Izakaya&Showa Izakaya tonight!
Please enjoy to Japanese traditional food & drink with our history in LOCAL hidden places! (You will definitely understand our big change)

There're uncountable Izakaya in Shinjuku.
But mostly for only touristy places sadly.
Shinjuku became famous tourist spot already as u know.
There're many looks like local Izakaya but it's just looks.
They don't have any tradition, history and great Japanese chef.
It’s really hard to find great Izakaya in Tokyo even Japanese now.
So many foreigners can't experience REAL Japanese Izakaya.

I really wanna tell u how delicious Japanese food and great deals!
My places are absolutely different taste and level.
Best Izakaya have to be combines amazing atmosphere and tasty for me.
I’m sure about I can change ur mind about what’s Izakaya.
Don’t experience just surface of Japan. Please enjoy Real.

Eg..
Whale Sashimi, Horse Sashimi, Chicken Sashimi, Sake w/ puffer fish fin w/ fire, Wasabi & plum Yakitori (skewered chicken), alcoholic Bubble tea, sparkling Sake, alcoholic Matcha tea..ex

We may go to Izakaya that tourists can't enter usually.
If you still can drinking after tour time is over..
Let's go drinking together as a friend!?lol
Cheers my friends!

Hello there! I'm Koki.

I’m working as a tour guide for foreigners in Tokyo.
My policy is to help guests make highlight in Japan honestly!

And I’m exploring Izakaya(Japanese style pub) every dinner in different places!
Because I always missed Japanese food so much when I was living abroad.
It was great experience for me to realize about how great Japanese Izakaya culture are!

So I started to researching about everything for our food & Izakaya after back.
(I chose best ones from over 500 shops)
Now, it's the time to tell you my experience of which Izakaya are greatest and interesting :)

I really wanna tell you how amazing REAL Japanese Izakaya and drinks!
I’m sure about I can change your mind about what’s Japanese pub.
Don’t experience just surface of Japan. Please enjoy Real.

It is my greatest happiness my guests enjoy REAL Japan!

Even though I was the only guest on this outing it was still a lot of fun to experience different Izakayas with Yuichi! He was a great host and made me feel very comfortable. Highly recommend this tour if you are looking for an authentic Izakaya experience.

Koki was an amazing, funny, and thoughtful tour guide! He showed us places and encouraged us to try new foods/drinks that we wouldn’t have experienced otherwise. I impulsively booked his tour and I’m so glad I did because even after visiting Tokyo three times prior, I was able to experience Tokyo that was completely local and unique! I highly recommend you book his tour!

This was an AMAZING experience. Koki was a very fun and thoughtful host, and showed everyone an incredible evening. We had a night of crazy unique foods and drinks at local places we absolutely would not have found or navigated on our own. The whole night felt like going out with a friend you'd known for years—super personal connection, great stories, lots of laughter. Can't recommend this enough.

I can only recommend the tour "Nightlife in New and Old Shinjuku" ! Yuichi, my host for the tour is a very friendly and funny guy. You can feel his enthusiasm and his love to tokyo and all the food and drinks. He also knows a lot to tell and can respond well to the individual needs of the participants. Without this tour I wouldn't not found the best food in tokyo. You gonna miss something if you don't book this tour:-)

This was such an amazing experience. I have never done something like this before. He was such a good host and had so much knowledge of Tokyo and the area we were at. I would absolutely recommend him to everyone who wants to experience Tokyo the secret way.
