Enjoy a walk in a beautiful traditional Japanese garden followed by a casual sake tasting nearby. The tour will conclude with a visit to an observation deck from which you can see the expanse of Tokyo and its evening lights.
Spend a pleasant afternoon in a small group tour visiting a beautiful garden and then enjoying an informative sake tasting in a fun, casual setting. After meeting at a major train station, we will walk a few minutes to a garden that was first built by samurai in the 17th century and once owned by Japan’s Imperial Family. While contemplating the garden’s beauty, be sure to write down any meaningful thoughts you have, because you may not remember them once we get to our next stop where we enjoy a stand-up sake tasting choosing from among 40 varieties. Explore dry or fruity sake, sakes of different quality grades, and different regions of Japan. Finally, as the sun sets, we will go to the observatory deck of a skyscraper in the area for a view of Tokyo’s lights at night. Your guide can help you buy food to eat a casual dinner there, or she can leave you with suggestions for restaurants to visit after enjoying the view.
