    Join hidden Izakaya&Sake Pub Crawl Tour in Tokyo

    Join hidden Izakaya&Sake Pub Crawl Tour in Tokyo Shuri-San was a excellent guide! The three of us speak very little Japanese. However, this was the only language allowed at some the Izakaya of Okachimachi station, so he interpreted expertly for us. The izakaya were packed with people and it was super fun to hang out with the locals. Shuri-san took us to a very old standing bar in the area, a takoyaki stand facing the street and one of the original sake shops in the area. He is also a very fun guy to hang out with. We talked about baseball, anime, and much more. We tried some local beers, bottles of hoppy (a hop infused drink you add to shochu) and a flight of the local and seasonal sake. The night flew by and before we knew it our great time was over. Since no pictures were allowed in most places Shuri-san was kind enough to bring his camera and take pictures for us outside. If you want to try local food and drink in Tokyo, have Shuri-san show you. You won't be disappointed!

    Rent a Go-Kart and ride around Akihabara Tokyo!

    Rent a Go-Kart and ride around Akihabara Tokyo! The actual Go Karting was great! Zipping through the streets of Tokyo was a great way to see parts of the city you may never see.

    I felt a bit weird and pressured when we started the tour. We signed up for the 2 hour excursion, but they overbooked their 5pm slot so they needed our Karts earlier. They said we could have 1.5 hours with a guide thrown in for free - however it ended up being about 75 minutes because it took a while to get going.

    I felt pressured to accept this offering because, which I found out after, they needed the kart for the 5pm group that was coming in. Or at least it seemed the 2 hour option wasn't really available anymore.

    They also took pictures of us, but it took 4-5 days of emailing to get the pictures sent because the AirDrop transfer they tried to do did not work.

    Great experience actually being in the karts, just make sure you get what you pay for.

    Get Suica, the popular prepaid e-money card to get around!

    Get Suica, the popular prepaid e-money card to get around! Made travelling on the trains so easy. A must have if your planning on using the trains a lot. Very easy to top up at the train stations if you need to add more money. Easier than buying a ticket each time you want to go somewhere. With the Suica you just tap it as you walk through and tap it when you arrive at your destination and it subtracts the cost of the card. One of the best things we bought.

    Akihabara Tour for Anime, Manga. Try cosplay for FREE!

    Akihabara Tour for Anime, Manga. Try cosplay for FREE! I thought we would see more Anime and Manga and the cosplay costumes were not very good and only a few to choose from.

    Rent a Go-Kart and ride around Akihabara Tokyo! We had such a great time, I highly recommend hiring a guide to take you around. It would NOT be fun without one. We did ours after subdown when the streets were all lit up. So pretty and such a nice way to see the city. I also recommend an evening weekday because there was much less traffic. Highly recommend this adventure!

    Rent a Go-Kart and ride around Akihabara Tokyo!

    Rent a Go-Kart and ride around Akihabara Tokyo! Husband and I booked this while on our honeymoon. Was a very fun experience, would definitely do it again. Our host, Dai, made us feel safe the whole time, we were given good instructions. We started in Akihabara and went through Asakusa, Ueno, and had a break at tokyo sky tower to have pictures taken. The only thing is the petrol fumes can get a bit overwhelming after a while, consider wearing a mask? Don't expect much of a "tour" as it isn't possible to talk while driving, it was more of getting a feel for Tokyo streets and neighbourhoods.

    Rent a Go-Kart and ride around Akihabara Tokyo!

    Rent a Go-Kart and ride around Akihabara Tokyo! It is a pity.
    Although the book is booked early, the tour guide is not enough to delay the experience.
    Hoping to increase the number of guides or can be integrated into a team, with other people experience.

    Rent a Go-Kart and ride around Akihabara Tokyo!

    Rent a Go-Kart and ride around Akihabara Tokyo! An amazing experience. First time in general riding go-karts around the streets. First time driving on left side of the road, you will get used to it quickly. It is a unique experience and other tourists will take pictures of you like a star. The host was awesome as well.

    Join hidden Izakaya&Sake Pub Crawl Tour in Tokyo

    Join hidden Izakaya&Sake Pub Crawl Tour in Tokyo I booked for this experience, and met with host 4 hours later. Very friendly and good English speaker. We visited areas you won't find in guide books. There was literally no foreigners at any places we visited. I was also given a good explanation of different sake and wow did it taste good! Would recommend to anyone looking to experience genuine nightlife in Japan!
