We were fortunate to discover secret izakaya spots with Sarah - with pink hair 🤭! Sarah, we would like to thank you for an unforgettable experience and sharing your knowledge of Japan with us. Next time we come to Japan… we will surely be in touch if a tour is required 😉.
Exactly what we were lookin for!

GOTO rules! Our guide, Goto, was a total pro. Very responsive to our messages before the tour to confirm all the logistics.
The tour itself featured fantastic food and drink, but the highlight was the company and the new Japanese friends that Goto introduced us to throughout the tour.
It is obvious Goto has the ability to tailor the tour to the specific needs of any group. For us, he really highlighted some awesome and unique foods, and plenty of delightful drinks.
A Fine Night!

Our guide Goto was great. Went to several spots in Shinjuku with good snacks and drinks. Basically a night out with friends but easier since he knows the favorite spots.
