Tokyo Realtime: Kabukicho Audio Guided Walking Tour
Take a stroll through Japan’s most imaginative entertainment district. JUST A FEW MINUTES FROM SHINJUKU STATION, the Kabukicho district pumps the same energy, diversity and excitement into adult entertainment as the Shinjuku area it inhabits injects into city life. You’ll dive right into the hyper-energetic mix of bright lights, boisterous crowds, less-dressed girls, loud touts and discretely guarded doors.
AS YOU WEAVE THROUGH the streets of countless bars, strip joints, love hotels, and eateries, you’ll learn about the area’s colorful personalities and history, and get insights into the real action behind those closed doors. You’ll also get introduced to great places for a drink, a bite to eat, and to soak in the local ambience at your leisure.
