Nightclubs & Bars in Tokyo

Minimum age

Firstly, you will need to be 20 years old to enter most night clubs or bars in Japan. 20 is the minimum legal age to smoke or drink alcohol. Even Izakaya (restaurants serving alcohol) won't let people under 20 in, so unless you lie about your age and are lucky enough to be believed without being asked for an ID, you won't get in a night club before that age.

Where to go clubbing in Tokyo ?

The most popular areas for partying for young Tokyoites and foreigners alike are Shibuya and Roppongi (+ nearby Nishi-Azabu). This is where international parties are most often held, and the establishment most accustomed to dealing with gaijin are found.
