The Experience


There are lots of different varieties of alcohol, but Japan is known for sake, or as it’s called here, nihonshu. Nihonshu is normally refined using rice and a distinct Japanese brewing method. Generally, Japanese sake has a relatively high alcohol percentage, of 15-20%.

If you love to drink and you’re in Japan, then you definitely have to try the sake!

You could get sake pretty much anywhere in the city, but with all the different producers, varieties, and flavors, it’s hard to figure out which is the one for you, isn’t it?
If you want to learn more about nihonshu, then this is the tour for you.

Osaka’s major commercial hub, Tennoji!

If you’ve come to Osaka, then you can’t miss a visit to Tennoji. It’s got entertainment, hot springs, food, and a night view. Somewhere in that is also a fairly hidden shop. This place is the star of this tour.

Before stopping off for drinks, how about a quick tour of the city?
