The whiskey and sake tasting tour led by Thomas was incredible! Thomas was a very knowledgable host and was a great guide who explained everything given to us from proper etiquette, to history in great detail. The places he took us to for the whiskey and sake tasting and also the restaurant for dinner were absolutely incredible in terms of quality of food and atmosphere. Some of which were some of the best foods and drinks I’ve had so far! Absolutely must try and would gladly book again!

This trip was a highlight of our stay in Japan. Kyoko was a super host. She not only taught us a lot about Sake but about Japan in general. Answered all our little questions. The tour was top notch. The brewery is so special. The sake delicious. We were taken to a Raman shop run by a Grannie in her late 80s. The best meal we had yet. Thank you for making our trip so special. You are such a kind and warm person who loves her country and shares that love with others.

Toshimaya Shuzo Sake Brewery Tour
Food Tours

Walk around any city center in Japan past 10pm and one thing is abundantly clear: the Japanese love a good drink. The country is home to some of the best breweries and distilleries in the world, which produce more varieties of Japanese sake, beer, and whisky than anyone could ever hope to sample!

Japanese beer breweries produce premium pints which are sold in top restaurants all around the world, and have been doing so for the past 150 years. Japanese whisky distilleries have been rolling out casks of world-class spirits and the best whisky bars for about as long, and some have even recently started beating the old-school Scottish and Irish producers for the top spot in the world!

With an even longer pedigree, Japan’s top sake breweries have up to three centuries of experience under their belts; a visit to a historic sake brewery like Tokyo’s Toshimaya Shuzo is a top culinary and cultural experience wrapped into one.

Whatever your poison, byFood’s range of brewery and distillery tours in Japan have something for you. Book your spot on one of these Japanese drinking experiences for an afternoon of culture and history, with a delicious tasting (or five) to boot.
