About
Join us on a 3-hour tour to enjoy Japanese sake, incredible cocktails and world-famous Japanese whisky paired with local dishes. Tokyo has an amazing nightlife culture. We will explore some of the most interesting spots, try local beverages and learn about the best rice wines then end our evening with cocktails that you will never forget. Hidden gem drinking holes, standing bars, craft beer, high-end cocktails and whisky: this is what you will experience thanks to our local and knowledgeable guide. This tour takes you to the heart of Tokyo’s historic after-work spots as well as to the center of city’s booming cocktail culture as we visit some of the best bars in the metropolis. Along the way, we’ll sample delicious libations, swap tales of the salaryman life and the infamous Ginza Bubble era. We will try some of the most creative spirits, and discover some of the best places to relax over handcrafted cocktails in Tokyo. This tour includes all your drinks and different food tastings!

Although I am studying in Tokyo this was absolutely amazing!
We went to places I have not been to before and many of them only accessible if you are a local! Our Guide was amazing and shared many stories about the area and Japanese culture. We even went to a stylish cocktail bar where we were able to choose a drink made with Japanese ingredients and got a chance to try Wagyu beef jerky. So delicious, I absolutely loved it!!!

WOW great review thanks a ton. One of the nicest compliments is when we can share new things even with people who are working, living here or have visited Japan often! So glad we were able to show you something new! Hope you will join us for another tour in Tokyo, Kyoto, Osaka, Hiroshima or Mt. Fuji!

We loved our tour with Mario! He took us to 4 stops- beer, fried pork katsu sandwich, sake and a cocktail bar. He had a lot of knowledge to share and every stop was top notch. We saw a lot of places we would never have known existed. The cocktail bar was particularly special- every drinks was a work of art. He also promptly followed up via email with photos of our tour and great recommendations for the rest of our time in Tokyo. Highly recommend this tour!

So happy you and fun on our Tokyo Cocktail Tour, this one is so fun and Mario is knowledgable and has great stories to share. All our guides trained on this tour have interesting info to share about Japanese beer, whisky, sake and Japanese bartending and drinks culture.

We did the luxury sake and cocktail tour with Mario and it was fabulous! Mario is very knowledgeable and fun to talk to. He took us to great local places and ordered delicious small plates to share and try Japanese specialities. The Dassai sake tasting room was extremely cool and a great way to learn about sake. The final cocktail bar we visited was Mixology Salon. I have never been to such a creative and inventive cocktail bar- it was truly mind blowing how intricate the cocktails are that they make. 6 out of 5 stars for Mario- he is wonderful!

It was an enjoyable evening and my expectations were exceeded. The choice of bars, the order of the visits… just everything was well done and someone really put some thought behind all of it. The partners in the different locations were informed in advance and welcomed us; I particularly enjoyed the Mixology Salon and the Sake Tasting. Our guide Satoshi was a pleasure to be around with and I would certainly enjoy traveling with him throughout the entire country. Although he has been doing this probably a couple of times already, he still gave us the feeling as if this was a premiere. I was glad to see that he was using photos and other supporting materials during the tour. (The photo with Godzilla, the sake explanations – very cool!) But above all, it was his sense of humor which took the entire tour to the next level. Congratulations and thanks a lot!

We had our tour with Mario who was an exceptional guide. Mario has been living in Japan for 10 years and can speak Japanese. He is very knowledgeable and was able to order many types of drinks to suit our different taste palettes. Mario was always spot on with the types of drinks he recommended. My favourite was this Japanese infused tea whisky that I got to taste in a lovely local bar that we had just to ourselves.

We learnt a lot not just about drinks but the places and establishments that he made fun and engaging.

He went above and beyond by giving us lots of recommendations of the places we wanted to visit and the drinks we liked such as how to make that infused tea whisky I loved so much and the place in Tokyo I could go to buy the tea and whisky. The pictures he took and the many recommendations he mentioned to us was emailed promptly the next day.

I can not thank Mario enough for the amazing experience we all had.
