Loosening your belt buckle and discovering the mouth-watering cuisine, urban landscapes and boisterous ‘yokocho’ of the inner-west on an intimate walking and street food tour.
Riding Tokyo’s hidden alleyways, congested sidewalks and tranquil riverside bicycle paths on a Japanese classic road bike, meticulously handcrafted by a master frame builder.
Pulling up a bar stool at a hole-in-the-wall izakaya along the atmospheric JR Chuo Line and rubbing shoulders with inquisitive locals over a beer and a fistful of yakitori skewers.
Bouncing between family-friendly neighbourhood attractions on a Tokyo family bike tour or more accessible walking and street food experience.
Or just opting for a private ride or tailored outing on this vibrant side of town and letting DIG take care of the rest.

ABOUT YOUR GUIDE
Hi, I’m Andy
Hailing from Melbourne Australia, my young family and I reside in the laidback but eclectic Tokyo neighbourhood of Koenji.
I have a passion for Japanese classic bicycle restoration, outdoor expeditions, a hot bowl of ramen, a cold beer and exploring the endless local treasures, personalities and culinary delights scattered throughout this bewildering side of Tokyo.
As a passionate traveller, I’ve always found myself shying away from organised tours, particularly the large group variety.
Rehashed itineraries glued to the tourist trail.
Visits to uninspiring attractions and restaurants the tour operator has a mutual relationship with.
The general sensation of being churned through the system as a ‘booking number’.
I launched DIG Tokyo Tours as an alternative to this tour model, with the aim of crafting unique, socially responsible and immersive experiences in the captivating local neighbourhoods on Tokyo’s inner west-side.
So jump on a bike or join me on foot and experience an honest local insight into life here in Tokyo away from the tourist crowds.
