Rainbow karaoke is located on the 8th floor of the recently opened department store, Modi. It is an easy walk to Modi from Shibuya station, see our Map for the exact location.
Because Rainbow karaoke is relatively new and competitively priced, it is popular and can become crowded in the afternoons. Rainbow karaoke opens at 11 a.m. and closes at 5 a.m. I recommend going on a weekday as close to opening time as possible to avoid having to wait in line for a room. University and high school students tend to start streaming in from around 3 p.m.
Unfortunately there is not a lot of information online about this great karaoke experience yet. Their official website can be found here, but is entirely in Japanese.
Rainbow karaoke features private karaoke rooms which are rented to groups on a 30 minute or hourly basis. Prices are very reasonable, so for those looking to experience Japanese karaoke while in Tokyo this is an awesome budget-friendly option.
Weekday prices are the cheapest, starting at 0 yen for 2 hours of karaoke before 7pm! For a few hundred extra yen you can add an all-you-can-drink option to the room rental price. There is a drinks area near the reception stocked with hot and cold drinks and a soft-serve ice-cream machine! I recommend getting the all-you-can-drink option so you can fill up on lots of drinks and ice-cream while singing.
The decor inside is really creative. Rainbow karaoke is divided into different sections, each with its own distinct style. The rooms themselves also feature interesting artwork and lighting.
Some rooms are more 'upper-class' looking, and bigger than others. These rooms, designated U-rooms at Rainbow karaoke, cost a little extra. It might be worth it if you are celebrating a special occasion or going with a very large group.
There is also a big party room with a drum set for those who really want to go all out. You only live once, so why not head to the coolest, newest karaoke joint in Shibuya for some stress relief.
