Osaka Sake Time Tour
- 6:00pm ~ 10:00pm
- Four Hour Tour
We will meet just outside of Osaka at Ryokuchi-koen Station on the Midosuji Line.
This is a quieter area where we will visit a couple of Tachinomiya—(Standing, local-style sake bars). We'll begin at our first local sake shop and taste three (03) sakes here. We'll also enjoy two homemade appetizers made by the owner's wife.
After an hour, we will depart and catch the train to the next station. We will visit our second sake shop and taste one (01) special sake here. We will also try another appetizer, but we'll stay here for just a short time because we have dinner plans.
We will then depart for the third and final stop, a local izakaya—a Japanese ‘gastropub’. I have selected a set-course menu here and we will have the chance to taste a variety of seven sakes, depending on what I have learned from you and what you're looking for in a sake. This is an all-you-can-drink event with a set-course menu until 10 PM, which includes sashimi and delicious Japanese food. I'll also teach you about sake protocol and manners when drinking sake. When done, not only will you be happy, but you will leave with a deeper understanding of how to order sake and its relationship to Japanese food. Seven (07) sakes to taste here!
