Anyone visiting a major city is going to be interested in the nightlife. While some people choose to simply taste the daytime delights of Tokyo and then settle in for a quite night, there are many more who are eager to taste a night out in Tokyo. Depending on where you decide to visit in the city, a different night will be found in different places.
Some areas are popular among locals and rich businessmen and in this scenario foreign people may not be welcome. Roppongi is widely accepted as the best area to go for a good night out. The traditional type of night for the Japanese would be sat around a table with several friends, trying various different foods and drinks. Alternatively karaoke is a very interesting experience in Japan, with guests being given a private room with their friends to partake in the singing. This allows for a much more enjoyable and personal experience.
Naturally there are also places to go clubbing, dancing and drinking, much like in western cities. However, it should be remembered that technically dancing is forbidden in residential areas. This law is normally overlooked, as people can rarely resist the urge to dance when great songs are being played, but none-the-less the law still stands.
The entrance to clubs and bars can be both reasonable and expensive, depending on the area and the type of place it is. However, the ticket usually includes a few drinks and food, such as snacks or sometimes even a full meal. Some areas are known to be more dangerous than others, but providing people stay alert and aware of their surroundings, Tokyo is a safe place to explore and party in at night. There is also the option to go and see a show in Tokyo and there couldn't be more venues and shows to choose from. The city certainly comes alive at night and visitors and locals alike are in for a treat for the senses. It caters to all tastes and needs, whether the individual is looking for romance or partying, there is an area for everything.
