Travel like a local

In Tokyo, there’s non-stop action and things to do, and when you stop to look around, you realize that local life is happening all around you. Weddings in public parks. Kind people who will stop and help you with directions. Nights spent laughing over drinks in hidden izakayas with new friends. Neighborhoods like Ebisu, Nakameguro and Daikanyama are great starting points to see local life, and you can go beyond traditional tours and activities for a local’s perspective of Tokyo with Airbnb Experiences.

Real Japanese Archery (Kyudo) in Tokyo
Join this 2-hours experience and learn KYUDO, Japanese archery martial art. Don a traditional beautiful KYUDO uniform, channel your inner samurai. and challenge for the target! Usually when the beginner take up KYUDO in earnest, it takes several months of practice before they are allowed to actually shoot at a target. However, this class lets you go straight into action.

Shinjuku life after 5-Foods & Drinks
Please find out this tour on Instagram ID #gentle_yoshi. I will take you to the best Izakaya (Japanese restaurants and bars) or standing bar or Chicken skewer bar which sits in Shinjuku which is such a big city. Most locals patronize these places. They serve terrifically delicious Japanese dishes washed down with beer, Japanese sake and/or other booze. Then we will walk you through the red-light district called Kabuki-cho in Japanese, which is one of the biggest areas here, and witness the actual night life of Japan. And to cap off the tour, we will be going to the bar district where there are over 200 bars to go around in this area which is famous for its time-period sub cultures located in buildings that elicits the time-period themes portrayed. We will visit one to two bars.And you can continue the bar hopping after the tour to explore the rest of the 200 bars! So, what are you waiting for! Let’s go and meet a lot of colorful and exciting people. These are the best places to enjoy your night life in Shinjuku! Other things to note We will walk a lot. Please wear comfortable shoes. The minimum drinking age in Japan is 20 years old. Please let me know if you have food restrictions beforehand.
Midnight Diners Tokyo Experience
We'll head to a few izakaya bars for a few drinks and snacks the first hour. We wont start eating until the second hour. its best to have something small before we start the experience or during as well. We will be mostly drinking along the way. Izakaya are known as Japanese pubs, or the literal term "inside drinking shop". and Yokochos are widely known as one of the best places to explore in Tokyo, but many don’t know of its local reputation for eclectic little bars and gastropubs. Some are so off-the-grid that even Google Maps doesn’t know of their existence! Most of these tiny bars are located all around Tokyo. Yokochos are home to 1950s themed pubs, record-scratching bartenders, unique cuisine, and even a bar where the staff drink with you! Bar hopping in Yokochos is for sure the best way to explore the winding maze of historic pubs and eateries. Each Yokocho bar only seats a few people, with some of the smallest seating only seven. No sooner will you have sat down and ordered a drink than you’ll be drawn into the exuberant atmosphere, conversing with talkative locals. Whether or not you speak Japanese, Harmonica Yokocho is the perfect place to strike up a conversation with your neighbors at the bar counter, because even if you don’t know Japanese, I'll be happy to interpret. Soon, you’ll be cracking jokes and saying “kampai!” like a local!

Tsukiji market tour with Tsukiji lover
Let's explore the food wonderland of Tsukiji Outer Market and enjoy sampling some delicious food. I will give you a brief introduction to the outer market, which is like a labyrinth. There are about 400 shops, so it's difficult to understand what is happening and to find the good ones by yourself. We will also explore the backstreets of the outer market, and I will make recommendations and introduce you to my friends. We can enjoy several delicious tastings there, too. After this experience, you may continue enjoying Tsukiji Outer market by yourself—shopping, eating, and more. Please be advised that many local spots only accept cash. [REMARKS] Tsukiji inner market (Wholesale market) was closed on 6th Oct. 2018. But Tsukiji outer market is not moved. Our tour is exploring Tsukiji outer market so we could continue this tour. Other things to note Great for first timer in Japan. Infants (2 or less) are free. We have no children price. Acceptable delay is by 5 minutes. Unacceptable to join from the middle of the tour if you come late
