17:50pm: Assemble at Fushimi Station Nagoya In front of Exit 7. Depart with your guide.

Izakaya 1: Get your first Sake samples with four 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 samples with four 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.

Walk A: Walk through Nagoya’s Centre: You will take a short walk from the Fushimi area to Sakae. During your walk your guide will point out points of interest and it is the perfect time to learn more about Nagoya itself.

Izakaya 2 Taste the Nagoya local food: Your next visit will be a Showa Era (postwar era)-themed Izakaya. This little gem is really popular with the locals because of its outstanding Nagoya-style skewers and Nagoya local food. It’s a small local Izakaya that you will thoroughly enjoy.

Walk B: Head to the next Izakaya: Have a short break from drinking while heading to the third Izakaya of the night.

Izakaya 3 Taste many different types of Sake: At your final stop, 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 three 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.
