Experience Details

An intimate look at Japanese bar culture that takes you on a deep bar hopping experience by exploring two local bars, not busy tourist hubs. Each of the included drinks is poured with expert know-how and generational craftsmanship. These bars are members-only establishments and this experience is your VIP pass into these exclusive places, carefully selected by your host to make sure you get a friendly glimpse of Japanese bars that have good value for money. Go beyond the surface level of Japanese bars and drinks, and enjoy an authentic night out where you’ll experience the local drinking culture! The best Japanese bars combine a splendid atmosphere and awesome drinks; this tour will make sure you get your fill of both. The first spot is a tiny authentic bar packed with authentic craftsmanship and knowledge: two drinks are included, prepared with master expertise, alongside a small Japanese snack. At the second spot, you’ll get to sample two or three drinks. You’ll also receive a delicious dashi (soup stock) handmade by the store owner, a Japanese liquor master. Their Japanese liquor collection will blow you away, and you’ll get to see rare liquors not even the locals are familiar with! Your guide will introduce the charm of real Japan, going beyond the tourist bars and into the snakku of Japan’s salarymen in the know. This carefully planned tour takes you behind the scenes with a guide who has spared no effort in making sure you have the best Japanese bar-hopping experience possible, so get ready to sit back, sip, and enjoy a night of laughs and liquor!
