Tabimusubi walking tours (not bus tours) have restarted accepting tour requests and applications. In order to prevent the risk of spreading the novel coronavirus, we ask all participants to wear face masks and allow us to check your temperature. On the day of the tour, a guide assistant will have hand sanitizer and incorporate social distancing measures, so please join without concern.

Discover Sendai's authentic culture with locals! We take you to one of Sendai locals' go-to spots for a casual night out inside "yokocho" (alley of bars). Sendai is known for its "yokocho" culture and you can find several in a hidden section near the main shopping arcades. Ranging from traditional izakaya-style bars to more modern restaurants, yokocho have a little bit of everything!

Course:Iroha Yokocho Alley → Bunka Yokocho Alley

In this experience, first you will be guided around the alleys to learn their history, charm, and famous spots. Then you can choose locations to eat/drink at with the local guide. You only pay for what you order. The guide will help interpret, make recommendations, and keep you company with good conversation.

Reserve 2 weeks before, or you are able to join a regularly scheduled tour if there is room. Please check the website for details.
