  • Had a great night! Our guide (thanks Kaneuchi-kun!) took us to really local Japanese style restaurants and took care of everything for us. Next time I go to Japan I want to do it again. Please add Bar Hopping in Kyoto as well!

  • Kaneuchi is a great guide. He made us feel at home in Tokyo! Highly recommend it.

  • Our guides spoke great English and were extremely personable, not just polite but personal. They catered to our needs and made reservations ahead with small local places to help us navigate beyond the surface street façade bars, deeper down local alleyways in Shinjuku and Ebisu where we would otherwise have to compete with locals for a seat. It was an experience we would never have been able to achieve without them, even though I am able to speak some Japanese. They gave us the confidence to drink and enjoy like locals!
