As the sun sets, the neon lights of Tokyo flicker to life: hidden restaurants and bars come alive; rounds of beer, highballs and sake are ordered, and the scent of yakitori and sounds of nightlife fill the air.

Tokyo’s night scene is always fun, boisterous and lively. This is where locals shake off the day, eating and drinking, and often staying out until the last trains leave the city.

Tokyo Up Late is your food guide through the night: from noisy izakayas, ramen joints and tempura bars, to gyoza pit-stops, curry restaurants and the iconic convenience stores that stitch the city together.
