Kitakata Ramen and Local Sake Tasting with a Local Guide

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
    What to Expect
    Your tour begins in late morning outside of Kitikata Station, where you’ll greet your guide and head straight to an Edo-style sake brewery. Learn about the brewery’s special variety of sake, made using water from an underground river, before enjoying Kitikata ramen for lunch.

    After lunch, visit a modern sake brewery to taste rice wine in its Japanese garden. The next stop is a Japanese candy shop, where you’ll have the chance to sample sweet treats such as yokan (jellied dessert made of azuki bean paste) and manju (steamed bun).

    Once you’ve satisfied your sweet tooth, discover the unique brewing process of another sake brewery, where the wine is created to Mozart’s music. If you’ve selected the private option, you’ll then travel to a soy sauce brewery or travel straight to a lacquerware store to browse handmade crafts. For an additional cost, you’ll have the chance to create your own wind chimes, mirror, or chopsticks under the guidance of a resident craftsman.

    Your tour concludes with drop-off at Kitakata station or your accommodation.
