You might think, “Winery in Tokyo?” But the history of winemaking in Japan started in the 19th century. High-quality wines are produced in Japan and some labels have won the gold medal at an international wine competition in France. Let me introduce you a wine tour in Tokyo. The wineries are small. There are no vineyards. But it can be enjoyed as a half day fun trip inside Tokyo.
Feel free to personalize this offer with Taka.
If you are wine lover, the best way to discover Japanese wine is through tours and tastings.
Can you do it in Tokyo? Yes, you can!
In this half day Japanese wine tasting & winery tour, we visit three urban hipster wineries in Tokyo with your tour guide to taste various types of Japanese wines.

Japanese winemakers traditionally use two native grape varieties: Koshu, a very light white grape with floral notes similar to Chardonnay, and Muscat Bailey A, a red fruit with a full-bodied nose and a delightful cherry sweetness. Visiting wineries is a pleasant way to search for your favorite while enjoying a variety of tastes.

Taka - san, thank you so much for your kind service. Very punctual and prompt. We did not face any trouble.
Dear Chamine, I feel so happy to hear from you. Although the weather was not so good, we did not face any trouble. Because I was with kind, gentle and cheerfu couplel! Thank you so much for finding me.
My sons (ages 26 and 22) and I had a wonderful two days with Taka in Tokyo last week. We discussed prior to arriving what exactly we were looking for and Taka delivered all that and more. He was on time, his English was excellent, supplied enough history, etc. for the sights we delivered and was fun to be around. We asked for a mix of the not to be missed sights along with visiting restaurants and and off the beaten track type places that Tokyo natives would visit and were not disappointed. Taka also offered excellent restaurant recommendations for the time we were not with him and even walked us to a popular sushi restaurant in Shibuya that doesn't take reservations to be sure we were able to get our number for the waitlist. He went above and beyond what he needed to do. Don't read ... read more
Thank you so much for your great review, Nancy. It was my great pleasure and honor to show you and your sons around the city of Tokyo. We went to so many places and sampled a wide variety of food & drink! Thanks for choosing me as your tour guide!
Taka is a great guide. He fielded our questions, was flexible about spur of the moment decisions, and did a great job picking out places for us. I highly recommend his service.
Thank you for the nice review, Faith. I am glad you and Eric enjoyed our tour. Hope you had great holiday in Japan, and would come back again!
We are a family of 6 and we had an excellent experience with Taka. He is knowledgeable, friendly, funny and he could read our group to determine the best path for our day. He’s very funny and we laughed a lot with him. Would highly recommend Taka to anyone wishing to have a great day in Tokyo!! Thank you Taka!!
You're welcome, Sallie! Thank you for taking your time to write such a nice review. Hope to see you and your family again. I will take you to more places!
Thank you Taka for a very enjoyable and memorable day out in Tokyo. We went to so many different places in just one day and I felt I gained a great overview of many different aspects of Tokyo - both the old and the new. You were very knowledgable about the city and its history, and shared many interesting insights. I highly recommend Taka for anyone looking for a warm, engaging, considerate guide who speaks excellent English, and is lots of fun to be with!
Thank you, Nerilee. So glad to hear you enjoyed our tour. It’ fun to walk around Tokyo, wasn’t it? Please come back again! There's so much more I have to show you! Hope to see you again!
