What are we going to find?

Shibuya is known as some of the most famous and coolest cities in the world, aka the city that always catches the trend

As well tourists from foreign countries, Shibuya is that kind of city for Japanese people, a lot of people visit Shibuya from other prefectures of Japan.
My tour is mainly composed by three parts, first of all I am going to give you the background story of Shibuya's icon, Hachi-kou's story.
Then we are walking through business district of Shibuya and give you recommendation for what to eat in Japan based on where local people often go, and how local people like to eat.
Finally, we are going to the history side of Shibuya and give you brief explanation of Japanese culture and Shibuya's history.

  • You will find something you might not find in a guidebook!

I think you can find a lot of information about Shibuya on the internet or guidebook. But, I can offer you the secret history and places of Shibuya (and some of the famous places that I don't want you to miss...).

Once we finish the walk, we will walk back to the Hach statue where I will give you time to ask questions, share opinions about the area or about Shibuya and I will try to help you find the perfect place to eat, shop or visit!

These are examples of places that we will visit during the tour:

  • Hachi statue 忠犬ハチ公像

Really enjoyed Kosuke’s tour, exceeded my expectations. He provided information and places one would otherwise never know or see. I now know what to do upon visiting a shrine or where to buy anime or find a tasty ramen place to eat ( which tried and it was delicious, then he assisted us to buy train tickets. Highly recommend

Kosuke was a great host. Lively and as a Japanese himself, could answer a lot of questions about local culture and more.

It was a very interesting walking tour, our guide Kosuke was really good in explaining the history of these fascinating places. Moreover he gave us some suggestions about typical food and where to eat and drink. We highly recommend this tour with Kosuke.
