Experience Details

Japan has many striking hot spring resorts, but none is quite like Beppu in Oita Prefecture. The largest hot spring area in western Japan, Beppu is home to hot spring sources in the thousands, from deep red waters to relaxing, milky lagoons. But beyond its bubbly springs, this charming area is also home to a rich food culture and a vibrant nightlife. In this food and drink tour, spend a lively evening with a local in Beppu, tasting signature foods and drinks in the bubbly atmosphere of local izakaya eateries. You'll start the night with an exclusive sake tasting at Space Beppu, a charming centuries-old Japanese house that is now restored and hosts a variety of workshops and local activities. Here, you'll enjoy a guided sake tasting, delighting in different kinds, from dry to sweet, and you'll get to take home a special bamboo sake cup as a souvenir, a specialty craft of the area. Next, you'll head into the core of Beppu's culinary scene and dine at an authentic Japanese izakaya, mingling with locals over refreshing drinks and specialty foods. You'll finish your night with one final drink at a charming bar, where you can reflect on your fun evening of revelry. The organizer of this experience is a German-born Japanese guide, fluent in both Japanese and English and with deep bonds to Oita's local culture, ensuring that you receive an incredibly authentic and immersive local cultural experience. On occasions when he is unavailable, another English-speaking local expert will lead the tour, ensuring you become acquainted with local customs and traditions and experience the charms of Beppu beyond its famous springs.
