The Embassy Take on Tokyo: Indonesia
From a hot new spot that's attracting a flood of female fans, to sports centers where you can work up a sweat, to places to grab a special midnight snack, we go on a tour of Tokyo after dark!
CanCam x Tokyo Prince Hotel Night Pool A pool at a luxury hotel in Japan that opens itself up at night during the summer. The pool is lit up at night and is a very popular spot to take cute photos. In 2018, the night pool runs until September 17.
Asakusa Batting Stadium A batting cage facility in Asakusa, one of Tokyo's most famous sightseeing areas. More and more tourists in Asakusa are stumbling across this place where you can enjoy hitting baseballs. Even if you've never played baseball before, it's easy to get into.
Jicoo The Floating Bar A bar floating on the water-that's the concept behind this night cruise. Take in the beautiful night sights of Tokyo Bay, including Rainbow Bridge, while dancing to great music and enjoying a drink or two.
Shinjuku Shokuniku Center Kiwame From 11PM to 2AM, enjoy a special all-you-can-eat offer at this yakiniku (grilled meat) restaurant. Their super-fresh liver is extremely popular. Don't be surprised if there's a line.
Parfaiteria Bel A parfait parlor, known for parfaits that are not too sweet and filled with fresh, seasonal fruit and tasty gelato. They're perfect after dinner or drinks, even if you don't have a sweet tooth.
Maruta A hidden gem of a ramen shop that's only open from around 1 to 3AM. The owner strives to create bowls of ramen that are perfect to enjoy after a night of drinking. The simple, delicious soy sauce ramen is popular.
