Izakaya and sake are key parts of Japanese food and drink culture. Giulia and Yuma have been involved in sake-making and running our own izakaya restaurant in the last 3 years, and we just love to share my passion with people. We also started a food tour company that ranked the top 10 on Tripadvisor in Japan. We will virtually experience the Japanese culture of Izakaya gastropub and sake.
What to expect:
We will start off the experience with a short tour of our izakaya restaurant in Tokyo and we will talk about the Japanese izakaya culture and sake such as:
• What we drink in Izakaya restaurants • Sake 101 (how it is made, terminologies, classifications) • Ways to enjoy sake better and sake & food pairings
If you have sake or any drink at home to bring to this experience, that would be great! This is a great way to interact with other guests and perfect for a private/team building/family event.
What you need to know:
• This online experience is perfect for groups of friends, families, team-building events and end of year office parties • The class will be conducted via Zoom, you will receive a link to enter the call after booking • All ingredients and kitchen tools are mentioned in the section below • Pricing per household

Had a wonderful time, and ate the most delicious Tuna Bowl ever in Tsukiji! Would definitely recommend for an inside look into these two markets :)
A must-do tour. Our guide was a charming and knowledgeable gem. He was able to answer all questions about buildings, different fish and food items, and why some vendors were more significant than others. He was also an extremely thoughtful and considerate host throughout the tour. We got to experience so much during our time with him. Everything we sampled was the best. I would take this tour with him every time I’m in Tokyo. Thank you!
Really excellent night of exploring Shinjuku and sampling a delicious variety of foods at wonderful restaurants. Had my first ever Lemon Sour while watching chefs expertly whip up okonomiyaki. Best karage ever at a stand up restaurant near the Godzilla Hotel that I returned to repeatedly later in my trip bc it was so good! Very sweet and knowledgeable guide, and a night of cool food experiences. A great experience all around.
Awsome experience with Yuma ! Food was not only excellent, but presentation was refined and well balanced. Sake and Shochu pairing was also very great and generous.
This experience offers you amazing food and drinks but also a lot of information about wagyu beef, sake and Shochu.
