Overview

Do you know sake?
Called Nihonshu, or rice wine, sake has been consumed for many centuries as a popular alcoholic drink in Japan.
This tour takes you to a Sake Brewery nestled in the west of Yokohama, suitable for those staying in Yokohama and Tokyo.

What to Expect

The Sake Brewery has a firm belief, “Making sake is from growing rice”.
At the brewery, we will participate in the brewery’s tour.
We can see a beautiful paddy field stretching into fertile land. We get into the brewery and learn how sake is made there. Then, we will taste several types of sake made from the rice and pure water produced in the area. It would be a wonderful experience to get in touch with Japanese culture.

“ A wonderful introduction to Tokyo ”

Aki was a very well informed and considerate guide. We were very appreciative of his wealth of knowledge about Tokyo and his willingness to accommodate our queries. By the end of our tour we felt Aki had provided us with sufficient information to give us confidence to venture out the following days on our own exploration of Tokyo. Aki was at all times polite, well informed and good company during our first venture in Tokyo.

Aki:

Dear Marilyn, Thank you so much for giving me such an awesome review! That's very nice of you to say! I'm very happy to hear that you enjoyed exploring Tokyo by yourself. It was really nice to meet you and was my pleasure to have guided you. Please convey my regards to your husband. Thanks for coming to Tokyo and choosing me as your guide! Sincerely, Aki

“ Meeting with Aki was like meeting an old friend ”

Aki was great. He planned an excellent day tour for us, taking into account our two young children, ensuring that we all had a great time. It took almost no time to get comfortable with Aki as our guide, and as we talked during our train ride from Yokohama to Tokyo, it felt like we were catching up with an old friend. I highly recommend Aki to anyone touring Tokyo or Yokohama, especially families.

Aki:

Dear Scott, Thank you so much for giving me such an awesome review! That's very nice of you to say! I'm very happy to hear that your family enjoyed the Tokyo tour. I also felt at ease with your family like an old friend. It was really nice to meet you. Please convey my regards to your pretty family members. Thanks for coming to Yokohama and choosing me as your guide! Sincerely, Aki

“ Tokyo & Kamakura ”

We were a group of 6 for Tokyo tour and 4 for Kamakura. Aki is a good guide; very patient, polite and professional. He knows the subject matter and explains well; sometimes we wished he gave us more details or background history. He gave us an excellent orientation of the subway stations and how the Japanese rail system worked. We wished he did a better of job of time management. Eg. in Tokyo, the Imperial Palace which was the first place we visited we spent too much time; actually you can do this without a guide and at Kamakura we again spent too much time at the first sight Engakuji temple; as a result we then had to rush around. Also Aki should have done a better research for taking us for lunch; because when lunch time came, we had to scramble and look for restaurants and in Tokyo... read more

Aki:

Dear Pervin, Thank you so much for giving me a kind review. I understand your disappointment. I realize that I need to be more sensitive to your expectations. Please accept my apology. Sincerely, Aki
