What You'll Do

You will be wondering what “regular nightlife” is like for a local in Nagoya? 

Depending on the day of the week and the kind of person you ask there are different ways of spending a regular night out.

Nagoya has its own culture and has many unique nightspots. A typical Izakaya is one of your best options when thinking about mixing with Japanese local people.

On this tour, you will discover the unique Japanese drink of Sake while mixing with locals. You will learn first about the history of Sake, its creation process, and the different types of Sake you can find. Then you will learn how to order your drinks and food as well as the etiquette when drinking Sake.

Finally, you will go deeper into Sake and you will learn how to pair Sake with different kinds of food.

  • Discover two local Sake bars and the lively nightlife in the center of Nagoya
  • Gain insider knowledge about Japanese Sake
  • Enjoy many different types of Japanese Sake (from sweet to dry, warm and cold)
  • Sample some delicious local appetizers that perfectly match with Sake
  • Experience Nagoya's night culture and share a table with locals

Izakaya 1Get your first Sake samples with your appetizers

Our first stop will be in Fushimi, a business district in Nagoya. 

We will visit the oldest Izakaya in Nagoya, established more than 100 years ago. At this first stop, you’ll get an introduction to the history and production techniques of Sake, while you enjoy your first Sake with your appetizers.

To connect with the place your guide will also make a brief introduction of this emblematic Izakaya and Nagoya’s food and drink culture. 

WalkHead to the next Izakaya

Have a short break from drinking while heading to the second Izakaya of the night.

Izakaya 2Taste many different types of Sake

At your second Izakaya, you will visit a modern-style Izakaya. This Izakaya specializes in Sake and tuna. We will order an All-you-can-drink (Nomihodai) menu. Be prepared to taste many different types of Sake that your guide will select for you, along with your appetizers.

Here you will learn how to match your Sake perfectly with food. With just a few guidelines to keep in mind when pairing food with Sake, you will have fun experimenting with pairings.

Sharing Japanese Sake culture with other travelers is such a powerful experience that gives me the chance to bring them closer to the exciting world of Japanese Alcohol veberages and explain them everything I know about Sake and Japanese culture as well.

I’m looking forward to seeing you on my tour!

I had a great time during the Sake tour. Elly is passionate about Sake elaboration and drinking culture. The tour is well organized around a hotspot in the city and I enjoyed a lot visiting new places I did not think existed, even after living in the city for more than a year. I really enjoyed the last izakaya with the all you can drink Sake option (many interesting options to try). Elly also gave me nice recommendations on where to go to explore the city (and the country) and also interesting facts on Japanese culture.
