Experience Details

Sake has deep ties to Japanese culture and spirituality. It's an indispensable part of rituals and special occasions — a fixture in Shinto weddings, where bride and groom exchange cups after saying their vows, and New Year celebrations, where it is tradition to drink a kind of sake mixed with medicinal herbs as part of the traditional celebrations, to name two examples. In this tour, you will delve into the profound relationship between sake and spirituality while exploring downtown Tokyo as part of a walking tour. You'll visit shrines and temples with unique connections to Japanese sake and learn about their etiquette and manners from your guide, who will teach you fascinating insights about these historical landmarks. After understanding the historical and spiritual significance of sake, you can wind down to its lighter, more social side by heading to izakaya bars, where you can clink glasses with locals and make friends over refreshing drinks. Your guide will be there to help you order your favorite sake and give you recommendations on bars and breweries to explore in Tokyo after the experience is over. Experience flow: -Meet your host at the meeting point and exchange introductions -Head to nearby shrines and temples related to sake and learn about their history, culture, and customs -Enjoy drinks at two local izakaya restaurants with a local guide who lives in the area
