An Authentic Japanese Drinking Tour in the Back Alleys of Sendai


Experience Japanese food culture and nightlife local-style


Narrow streets lined with alluring red lanterns, enticing you into the coziest of watering holes—Japan is a foodie’s paradise, and the friendly and knowledgeable guides at Tohoku Local Secret Tours will take you to places normally only locals know.

Soak up the atmosphere of traditional izakaya (Japanese-style pubs), savor regional delicacies, and make some new friends along the way as you hop to three back-alley bars. Once the night is over, you’ll feel like a local yourself. Tours run every evening and include an English-speaking interpreter.



From Tokyo Station, take the Tohoku or Akita Shinkansen to Sendai Station (about one hour 35 minutes), then take the Tozai Line subway to Aoba-dori Ichibancho Station (about two minutes). The meeting place will be on Sendai Aoba-dori, about a one-minute walk away; please check with the tour operator for details.
