The Tour with Yoko san has been tryly amazing! My boyfriend and I had a wonderful experience and we understood a lot about the Sake brewing, the history and many more facts about Japanese culture as well. Yoko san was very knowledgeable, pleasant and smiley and truly exceptional in what she is doing. I would recommend her 100%!

Tokyo Tea Tasting: 12 Types of Matcha, Sencha, & Gyokuro
Tastings
From my first time trying the Daruma Koshu at Sakagura in new York, I have been obsessed with this sake. The caramel noted with the refined taste of this aged sake which was paired with an ice cream (yes, I know, so weird and interesting) was a memory that has stuck with me for more than 5 years. When I planned my trip to Japan, a tour of this brewery was a must for me. When I saw that this was available on byfood, I was excited but initially skeptical due to the lack of reviews. However, I was surprised that the CEO Shiraki San herself was our tour guide. We were late to our appointed time due to navigation troubles (Do not use taxi to transfer after bus, you will not find one) but Shiraki San was extremely accommodating. She gave us an informative tour of the brewery showing us the several stages of the process (Fermentation, pressing etc.) and a facility where really old sake were still aging, even from as old as 1995. During the tasting session, we got to try several aged sake including ones from 1970s. Exploring how the aging changes the taste and even the texture, even at a period of around 5 years, was extremely intriguing. Each one feels really distinct from each other. The sake was paired with some dried fruits and nuts which were a really tasty combo. Finally, I got to purchase 2 bottles which had been so hard to find in my home country. This was a bucket list item for me for a very long time and I was love to do a tour again!

Supreme Sake: Brewery Tour, Tasting, & Aged Sake in Gifu
Tastings
Aki was AWESOME. On the day of the event he reached out via both email and WhatsApp to give us the specific meeting location (it's rather vague on the event page, which had us a little worried initially) and it was very easy to link up with him. During the tasting he was very energetic and upbeat which made it super engaging. Additionally, he is super knowledgeable when it comes to explaining the various nuances to the different types of sake. Everyone in my group learned a ton. Finally, he selected some excellent sakes. Our group weren't huge sake drinkers previously but enjoyed nearly all of the sakes we sampled. Oh and on top of all that- it was decent value as we got to try 7 different sakes (including the unpasteurized namazake type, which you can only get in Japan). Needless to say we all left there event buzzing.

Taste Seven Traditional Japanese Sake in Shinjuku
Tastings

Japanese beer brands need no introduction — Asahi, Sapporo, Kirin, Suntory. These famous Japanese beer companies have been household names around the world for decades, thanks to their reputation for crisp, clean flavors and unbeatable quality. You might think you have Japanese beer all figured out if you’ve tried these premium beers back home.

Once you’re in Japan itself, however, there’s so much more to discover, so it’d be a shame to just stick with the classics. Each of the big Japanese beer brands sell dozens of varieties, while hundreds of smalltime craft breweries in Japan jostle for position in the chic bars and beer gardens of the city centers. At times, the choice on offer is too much to wrap your head around, which is where these beer tastings in Japan come in.

If you’re wondering where the best places to try Japanese beer are, it helps to put yourself in the hands of an expert. With a Japanese beer tasting experience, you’ll get the lowdown on the history and richness of the drinking culture of Japan, while enjoying enough samples to get anyone pleasantly rosy-cheeked!
