Ready to become an Izakaya Master??

Join us for a night of eating and drinking like a Sendai local down the atmospheric back-alleys of Bunka-yokocho and Iroha-yokocho!

Entering these alleyways is like stepping back in time to retro post-war Showa Era Japan. There are so many tiny izakayas (Japanese pubs), bars and restaurants in these alleyways. Only around 8-10 customers can fit into most restaurants at a time, so it can be hard to walk into these places by yourself. Don't worry because on this tour you’ll be joined by a local guide! Our guide will introduce you to all the best places and help you with Japanese as you eat, drink and chat to the friendly locals.

On this tour you’ll enjoy a drink of your choice and a plate of local food at 3 different styles of izakaya. Discover new dishes and learn to order like a pro!
