Tokyo is impressive during the day, but after dark it really comes alive. The neon, the people and the energy are hallmarks of Tokyo nightlife, but so are the quiet backstreets in secret neighbourhoods with off-the-beaten-track bars and restaurants. Join our expert after-dark Tokyo guides as they take you to local Tokyo hotspots. Our Tokyo Night Tours complement our day tours, with many of our guests engaging us for 12 hours plus so things seamlessly flow from day to night.
Our evening tours will immerse you in the culture, cuisine and cocktails of Tokyo after dark – a once-in-a-lifetime experience! All tours are hosted by a Tokyo insider and expert concierge who facilitates the highest quality experience. Here are some ideas for a fun (and knowledge) filled evening in the World’s Greatest Metropolis with Maction Planet:
