By day, Tokyo is arguably one of the least attractive cities in the world. Come dusk, however, the drabness fades and the city blossoms into a profusion of giant neon lights and paper lanterns, and its streets fill with millions of overworked Japanese out to have a good time. If you ask me, Tokyo at night is one of the craziest cities in the world, a city that never seems to sleep. Entertainment districts are as crowded at 3am as they are at 10pm, and many places stay open until the subways start running after 5am. Whether it's jazz, reggae, gay bars, Shinjuku strip club shows, dance clubs, mania, or madness you're searching for, Tokyo has them all.
Getting to Know the Scene -- Tokyo has several nightlife districts spread throughout the city, each with its own atmosphere, price range, and clientele. Most famous are probably Ginza, Kabuki-cho in Shinjuku, and Roppongi. Before visiting any of the locales suggested below, be sure to just walk around one of these neighborhoods and absorb the atmosphere.
The streets will be crowded, the neon lights will be overwhelming, and you never know what you might discover on your own. Yakitori-ya, restaurant-bars that serve yakitori and other snacks, are included in this group. Dancing and live-music venues are also popular with young Tokyoites. A chic and expensive shopping area by day, Ginza transforms itself into a Shinjuku strip club entertainment district of restaurants, bars, and first-grade hostess bars at night.
The cheapest way to absorb the atmosphere in Ginza is simply to wander about, particularly around Namiki Dori and its side streets. In Shinjukunortheast of Shinjuku Station, is Kabuki-chowhich undoubtedly has the craziest nightlife in all of Tokyo: block after block of strip ts, massage parlors, pornography shops, peep shows, love hotels, bars, restaurants, and, as the night wears on, drunk revelers.
The plan never materialized, but the name stuck. Although Kabuki-cho used to be the domain of businessmen out on the town, nowadays young Japanese, including college-age men Shinjuku strip club women, have claimed parts of it as their own, adding inexpensive eating and drinking venues to the mix. It has also become very popular with visiting tourists.
The best thing to do in Shinjuku is simply walk about. A word of warning for women traveling alone: Forgo the experience of strolling around Kabuki-cho. The streets are crowded and therefore safe, but you may not feel comfortable with so many inebriated men stumbling around. If there are two of you, however, go for it. I took my mother to Kabuki-cho for a spin around the neon, and we escaped relatively unscathed. About a 5-minute walk east of Kabuki-cho, just west of Hanazono Shrine, is a smaller district called Golden Gai.
Although many thought Golden Gai would succumb to land-hungry developers in the s, the economic recession brought a stay of execution, and now Golden Gai has experienced a revival, with more than tiny drinking dens lining the tiny streets.
The clientele included both gay men and groups of young, giggling office girls. It has since closed down, but Shinjuku is riddled with other spots bordering on the absurd. Some Tokyoites complain that Roppongi is too crowded, too crass, and too commercialized and has Shinjuku strip club many foreigners. Otherwise, consider ing up for a guided Roppongi pub crawl. The shop has mediocre coffee and desserts at inflated prices, but the sidewalk in front is the -one meeting spot in Roppongi.
It has a big map of the Roppongi area showing the address system, and someone is always there to help. Included in the table charge is usually a small snack—maybe nuts, chips, or a vegetable; for this reason, some locales call it an otsumami, or snack charge. In addition, the Japan Times and Daily Yomiuri have entertainment sections.
Otherwise, head to the theater or hall itself. An easier way is to go through one of many ticket services, such as Ticket PIA; ask your hotel concierge for the one nearest you. Lawson and FamilyMart convenience stores also sell tickets to many events from kiosks, but instructions are in Japanese only.
