Ce vei face

I will take you on a walking tour of Shimokitazawa or Koenji, two of the most interesting areas in Tokyo in terms of fashion, music, food, architecture, design, theater and art. The areas are known for the "indie" scenes and I will take you to many places that are very hidden and could not be found without a guide. Most of the tour will be spent looking at shops that embody the unique creative spirit and magical obsession that their owners have with various incarnations of clothing, music and other artistic pursuits. One of the main parts of the tour is giving you information about all the incredible bars and restaurants in the area. If you would like, I will book you one of these restaurants for you before or after the tour, help you order if there is no English menu (which is usually the case) and then leave you to enjoy your meal.

In 2019, Shimokitazawa was chosen by readers and editors of Time Out as the second coolest neighborhood on the planet.

Both of these areas are filled with small lanes and some of the places we will visit are very cozy so it is important both in terms of not disturbing the locals and also enhancing the experience to keep the groups small. I have set a limit of 4 guests per tour but please contact me if you have a larger group and other plans may be possible.
Other things to note
Just bring your phone, your sense of adventure and an appetite.

Hello.
I am originally from Australia but have been living in Japan for 24 years. I have worked as a travel writer for magazines, books, and websites including "Navitime Travel" (travel.navitime.com). I also have a Master's degree in Japanese sociology and teach classes about Japanese culture and society at universities in Japan. I have an intense passion for places related to food, fashion, music, design, architecture, and art in Tokyo. I look forward to sharing my knowledge and love of Japan with you.

Unde vei fi

We will visit stores (related to fashion, art, music, books, and design) and interesting buildings that are historic and important to the areas and explanations of these places will be given. The areas are also very well known for their coffee scenes so we can stop for coffee or tea in the middle of the tour if you like.

If you are into second hands clothes or find records gems this is the tour to do, mind that Ben is hunger to show you many places, so write down the places along your tours and ask him what you want it will help him to show you whatever you like. Nice hindsights and interesting stories, take time to stop for a drink and speak.

Ben made a special effort to make us feel welcome in Japan. He gave us loads of advice beforehand, during the experience and afterwards. We all enjoyed his company, gained some insight and enjoyed learning about Ben’s experiences. He is very helpful, knowledgeable and personable. He made a real effort to ensure each of is saw something we wanted to see/ experience. Loved it. Only down side was we sometimes felt rushed. We now know how to reach the great vintage area and navigate the metro! Thank you!

Ben’s tour is excellent! Personal, off the beaten track, real insider experience. He has great taste and as we had communicated before meeting he tailored the tour with things we like. If you are planning this trip make sure you take his advice and recommendations and stay in the area all afternoon/evening. He knows great bars and restaurants.

I highly recommend this trip. It would not have been possible for us to discover all these hidden gems on our own. This was a very exciting area to visit if you want to see something different, than where all the tourists are. I recommend to use schedule some time after the trip, or another night. Then you will have the opportunity to go back to some of the places Ben showed us. Ben was incredibly nice and came with many personal tips for us. It felt like we were walking around with a friend.

Ben thanks so much for all the tips and insights into the areas we visited and shortcuts into the local Tokyo culture. We had a fantastic time with you!

Wonderful. We went on a personalised tour of used record stores -- Ben knew exactly the area where they all were -- and a more general tour of hidden back alleys, tiny bars and shrines and temples. Ben really went beyond the expected and spent a lot of time making recommendations of sights and dining places before the tours even started. He is very congenial with an easy manner and fluent Japanese.
