Tokyo Nightlife: Shibuya Bar Hopping with Magical Trip

In Travel Deeper by Gareth21 Comments

My love for Tokyo nightlife is no secret. I spent almost four months living in Tokyo last year, and one of my favorite things to do in Tokyo was exploring the endless variety of nightlife.

Thanks to the popularity of my Tokyo Nightlife Guide video, I was invited by Magical Trip to experience their new bar hopping tour in Shibuya.

Before we dive in, one thing to not: If you are interested in booking a nightlife tour with MagicalTrip.com, just know that all locations are subject to change on a nightly basis.

With that being said, let the good times roll…

Tokyo Nightlife Shibuya Craft Beer Bar

Tokyo Nightlife: Shibuaya Bar Hopping Stops

Stop 1: Goodbeer Faucets

Like many places around the world, the craft beer scene is also on the rise here in Tokyo, and bars like Goodbeer Faucets are popping up all over the city.

This bar has 40 different beers on tap draft and an array of bottled beers primarily from Japan and the U.S. For the beer enthusiasts, I go with a delicious Rising Sun Pale Ale from Japanese-based Baird Brewing Company.

The average price for a pint is about $10 USD, but there are happy hour specials (and high-end selections).

Our first taste test of the night is a sizzling dish of creamy camembert cheese and bright orange fish eggs in a garlic oil. To be honest, I wasn’t sure what to expect when it was explained to me, but it was excellent!

Stop 2: Niku Yokocho (2nd floor)

I’ve mentioned this in the Tokyo Nightlife Guide video, but it’s worth saying again…

Two of the most important words to know when it comes to Tokyo nightlife are Izakaya, which are informal Japanese pubs, something like a small, tapas-style restobar.

The second is Yokocho, which are small alleyways or side streets that are usually lined with these Izakayas.

Now that we covered that, it’s time for stop number two.

Niku Yokocho is home to over 20 Izakayas, all serving up a variety of meaty food options. Niku actually means meat in Japanese.

We start out with a pork and veggie stir-fry with cabbage, carrots, onions, and kimchi, topped with sesame seeds and a soy dressing.

Next, its an omelette called Tonpeiyaki, filled with more pork, peppers, onions, and topped with a creamy mayonnaise.

It was the third plate however, that really got me going… a ridiculously tasty, thinly sliced steak smothered in herb-covered melted cheese!

Tokyo Shibuya Niku Yokocho

As if the food wasn’t mind blowing enough, our Magical Trip guide, Ryo, surprised us with a live magic show! A local magician came up to our table and proceeded to baffle us with sleight of hand and card tricks. It was one of those little touches that made this night so much fun.

Stop 3: YA-PPA (Niku Yokocho – 3rd floor)

Stop number three of the night is actually right upstairs, and a completely new set of Izakayas. There are actually 10 more locations in this area of the third floor alone!

Tokyo Nightlife Shibuya Niku Yokocho

This round leads off with Okonomiyaki. Okonomiyaki is a classic Japanese staple which can loosely be described as a cabbage pancake and in this case topped with bacon and the ever-present Katsuobushi (dried fish flakes).

Follow that up with a popular culinary trend here in Tokyo at the moment – meat sushi or Nikuzushi. It looks like the typical nigiri-style sushi, however rice is topped with raw or lightly cooked pork or beef.

The first one we tried was a flash-cooked beef topped with green unions, sesame seeds, and teriyaki sauce.

Tokyo Shibuya nikuzushi

Saving the best for last, is one of the greatest meat experiences of my life. Thinly sliced, and quickly torched Yamagata-gyu. One of the highest grade Wagyu beefs available. This piece of meat melted in my mouth like butter. Fatty, flavorful, and so unique to a regular steak I’ve come to know.

Tokyo Shibuya nikuzushi

I had to pay my respect to the owner of this Izakaya for the incredible meal…

Tokyo Nightlife Shibuya Niku Yokocho

We spent the rest of the night just enjoying conversation, learning more about Japanese culture, and drinking some very smooth sake. Another fun aspect of the night was when our guide gave us a Japanese “quiz” where he showed us photos of Japanese food and famous people, and we had to guess what and who they were.

It was truly a great evening with a small group of foreigners and a friendly, caring staff. If you ever have the opportunity to visit Tokyo, I would highly recommend this nightlife tour with Magical Trip.

As I mention in the video, you guys know that I don’t work with or endorse many tours, but this one has a great local element that I truly appreciate.

      When I found Dr. Olu I was in desperate need of bringing my ex lover back. He left me for another woman. It happened so fast and I had no say in the situation at all. He just dumped me after 3 years with no explanation. I contact Dr. Olu through his website and He told me me what i need to do before he can help me and i did what he told me to, after i provided what he wanted, he cast a love spell to help us get back together. Shortly after he did his spell, my boyfriend started texting me again and felt horrible for what he just put me through. He said that I was the most important person in his life and he knows that now. We moved in together and he was more open to me than before and he started spending more time with me than before. Ever since Dr. Olu helped me, my partner is very stable, faithful and closer to me than before. I highly recommends Dr. Olu to anyone in need of help.

  12. Leonarda Vedran

    I feel so blessed again in my marriage after Dr. Isikolo brought back my husband that separated with me for good 3 mounths. Am Leonarda Vedran by name from Los Angeles. Even though i have mouths all over my body, it won’t be enough to thank Dr. Isikolo for his help upon my life. My husband separated with me for the 3 months and have been in pains and agony without him. So, i searched for help everywhere but nothing worked out not until i meant Dr. Isikolo who i contacted online. I explained my situation to him and he promised that my husband will get back to me within 24 to 48 hours as far that my heart still beats for him. I believed in him and he prepared a spell for me and my husband called me exactly when Dr. Isikolo said. He pleaded and said he needs me back and now we are living happily again for the past 9 months. Everyone out there reading my article that needs help should contact him… Email: isikolosolutionhome@gmail.com. call or Whatsapp or Viber him on +2348133261196

    My husband is my hero, he saved our marriage and my heart from an unhealthy emotional attachment with my ex.
    The problem was that I jumped into marriage from a fresh breakup, I never allowed my heart to heal, that’s why I was heavily hunted and distracted to a point that I almost abandoned my husband and our 2 beautiful daughters to my ex. Look how stupid I was to think that my beloved husband of 5 years can be replaced by a bad ass ex-boyfriend.
    My husband proved that real men still exist despite all the embarrassment I brought to him, he didn’t let go, he rather worked with Dr. Wakina through his love spell to untie me from the unhealthy emotional attachment with my ex.
    Now my eyes are open to cherish the beautiful family I have, I also realized the meaning of true love. I’m hoping to do more than what Dr. Wakina via dr.wakinalovetemple@gmail.com did for me.
    Thanks to my husband for letting me share this story.
    Remain blessed.
