Backstreets of Tokyo

from/per person 0.00


Like a Local: Backstreets of Tokyo are the true flavour of the metropolis

The backstreets of Tokyo are where you can find the heart and soul of the city:

  • locals shopping for their daily needs along the shotengai
  • mom and pop eateries
  • tiny boutique shops
  • hidden cafes and bars

It’s all part of the rich tapestry which makes up the World’s Greatest Metropolis. 

See a Different Side of the City: Not the typical tourists traps!

The Backstreets are of course visited on our Iconic Tokyo tours, Food tours, Otaku tours and other experiences as we navigate around the city. However, for those who have been to Tokyo before, or if it is your first time and you want to see a different side of the city than the typical tourist sights, we can tailor your time to focus on the untouristed neighbourhoods and hidden gems which can give real insight into daily life in the city. 

We will most certainly experience unplanned and unexpected delights on this Backstreets Local Tour. Check out our 5* reviews on TripAdvisor to read what our guests are saying about their experiences getting to heart of what makes Tokyo tick.
