Kyoto Luxury Sake, Whisky and Cocktail Tour

Come enjoy an evening of local food and drink pairings with us! As dusk falls we will explore the alleys and back streets and make our way to a hidden-gem, cocktail bar that has been awarded for their amazing bartenders and gold star original drink creations. We will try local snacks paired with a delicious cocktail of your choice.

As evening deepens we will lend our way around the small side streets and see some of the best views of Japan’s ancient capital. Our next stop will be a restaurant in a family home that dates from over 100 years ago. The host will be sure to entertain us with stories, specialty food and Kyoto Sake. We will try his famous “appetizer surprise box” and two small plate dishes featuring mochi used in surprising ways.

Our final stop is whisky tasting in the Pontocho district (other beverages are also available). We will pair it with your choice of sweets or bar snacks and finish up the tour with an atmospheric stroll through this lively nightlife district.
