If you’re getting tired of the same old routine, mix it up with one of these recommendations for a unique night out in Tokyo. From a dinner cruise on the river to a wild night at a S&M themed bar, an all night bookstore to 24 hour golf, there is something for everyone in Japan’s capital city.

Yakatabune on the Sumida River

Discover Tokyo from on a traditional Japanese pleasure craft along the Sumida River. Yakatabune are those low, casual boats strung with festive lanterns and are just made for a good time. The Tokyo Yakatabune Association is happy to assist with booking dinner cruises, and prices start from just 10,000 yen per person.

Nonbei Yokocho

Head to Nonbei Yokocho, also known as Drunkard’s Alley, for a late night drink and a warm reception. The bars and restaurants here have been around for over fifty years, and most are just big enough to permit a coupe of patrons to sit inside. Situated close to Shibuya Station.

This popular onsen resort and theme park does an excellent job reviving the atmosphere of Old Edo. Make a splash in the wading pools, soak in the onsen or sample tasty treats while you explore the village atmosphere. Oedo Onsen Monogatari stays open all night, closing for just a few hours between 9 to 11 AM each day.
