Experience Details
Japan is home to high-quality rice and pure spring waters, so it’s no surprise that putting the two together results in delicious Japanese sake! While the amount of sake produced in Japan can be overwhelming, the Tohoku region of Japan lovingly produces (and consumes) delicious local sake. Jump on a Sake Bar Crawl in Sendai for an awesome drinking tour while enjoying sake that’s made locally in the region. No more head-scratching and head-tilting, this Sake Bar Crawl in Sendai will teach you how to decipher different labels on sake bottles. During an evening of sake tasting and drinking at local izakayas and bars, you’ll learn everything there is to know about high-quality Japanese sake. Join this awesome Sake Bar Crawl in Sendai to explore the back alleys of Bunka Yokocho and Iroha Yokocho, cozy alleyways that are reminiscent of the Showa Era. Learn about your new favorite styles of Japanese sake as you crawl your way through a number of local bars, pairing your drinks with local food along the way. You’ll enjoy a glass of delicious sake at 3 venues, plus you’ll also enjoy a plate of local food to match your drinks at each sake bar. Never mind the language barrier, your friendly English-speaking guide will let you in on the secrets of sake; from what ingredients and processes are used to brew sake to what distinguishes different types of sake, and how to order like a pro. You’ll also learn how to appreciate the different varieties of sake on offer in Japan, and become an expert on sake by the end of the night.
