Got tired of the busy Tokyo? Got bored of the touristy Tokyo? Why not having a local experience just an hour away from the center of Tokyo that any tourist has explored yet!

About this experience

It’ll be a good experience for those who want to explore outside of Tokyo, or who have already enjoyed enough must-do things in Tokyo. We will take you to some historical places, Kirin beer factory and local Sake brewery. This tour will be hosted by a local guide who was born and brought up in this city, so feel free to ask anything! Since we will be visiting some places that you can try some alcohol, it’s better if you are a legal age to drink but if not, we can provide you some other options and it’s still fun just to know the process how those alcohol are being made! This tour takes 7h long, so let’s be nice travel buddies and enjoy together!
