Godzilla, ninja and the Japanese nightlife!

What you can expect

Kabukicho is not just any downtown, it is Japan's most famous downtown shopping district. The town, with a cyberpunk vibe and colourful neon lights, has become the subject of many movies and video games. On this tour you will spot Godzilla lurking behind buildings, try on samurai armour and pose with a Japanese katana sward, and drink cocktails in a ninja themed bar. The best thing about this tour is that you can visit the kinds of places you would not get the chance to visit on a group tour. Visit the stimulating town, Kabukicho, full of modern entertainment as well as good old bars, and enjoy Japanese nightlife, safely, with your very own otomo tour guide.
