Immerse yourself in the heart of Japanese culture with me. I am, a Spanish entrepreneur living over 16 years in Japan. My extensive experience has made me not just a guide, but a cultural bridge, connecting travelers to the authentic spirit of Japan.
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 beverages.
Join me, and together let’s explore the depth and beauty of Japan.
Liaising with the Nagoya is Not Boring team was excellent from the start! They were very responsive and pro-active ! Elly was a fantastic guide and accommodated us with our non alcoholic drinks for some members despite it being a sake tour!
We learnt quite a bit from this tour – how to pour the sake, what to say and how to drink it correctly. Elly was very informative on sake and her being to explain and read Japanese made it so much easier for us! Going to the traditional restaurants was an experience and probably something we wouldn’t have done easily by ourselves! Thank you Elly & team!
My wife and I are really glad we picked this tour. Getting to visit an old izakaya that the locals go to was a different and unique experience from the usual tourist fare. Was really fun interacting with the locals and making some new friends.
We also really appreciated Elizabeth’s local knowledge of the city, culture and of course sake. We left knowing and appreciating Japanese sake much more.
Thanks, Elisabeth. We enjoyed talking with you about your experiences in Japan!
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.
