My colleagues and I have explored all sorts of areas in Tokyo: from stylish and cosy neighbourhoods like Nakano, Koenji and Shimokitazawa, to the bright and busy areas such as Shibuya, Shinjuku and Roppongi. One of the most unique places that we love, with a touch of old meets new, nature meets city is Harajuku, and we would love to show you around! To kick off the our tour, let's meet at the Shrine Bridge and head together to visit the infamous Meiji Jingu Shrine. It is one of the most well-known shrines in Japan which was built in 1920. It is located inside of Yoyogi Park, a large forested area inside the big and busy modern city. After walking through and discovering Meiji Jingu Shrine, let's walk to the other side of Yoyogi park, where my favourite hidden secret green area is located, with a tranquil and stunning pond. We will have a small picnic here, with some snacks and drinks, relax and surround ourselves in the beautiful nature. As night falls, we will head back to the busy area and continue our tour by roaming through the city and visiting two to three bars. We offer discounts/freebies at every place so you won't have to break the bank! There are also delicious food options, so if you’re feeling peckish, have no fear. Be ready to meet other travellers and have fun with everyone!
Venese & Friends
Hello! I’m Venese and I’ve lived in Tokyo for almost six years now. In a city like Tokyo that gathers so many people from all walks of life, it’s incredibly fun meeting new people, and it’s even more fun to explore Tokyo together with them. I work in a company that is closely-related to the tourism and the nightlife industry, and as a result my colleagues and I visit a lot of unique and local places regularly. We’ve come across many great places all over the city, some of which may be hard to find, or some may have their information only in Japanese. We’d like to share and explore these places with you!
