Yoshidamachi Local Experience Tour No. 3 "Explore the mystery of fresh brewing culture in both Japanese sake and American craft beer”
In conjunction with the steady progress of preparation for the upcoming 2020 Olympics in Tokyo, the neighboring port city of Yokohama is also gearing up its efforts to draw more and more tourists from all around the world to its diverse urban assets. To take advantage of the city's booming inbound tourism, Yoshidamachi has drawn up a set of its own programs to capture the attention of international visitors to its distinctive features filled with local street charms.
Tour No. 3 "Explore the mystery of fresh brewing culture in both Japanese sake and American craft beer”
This program invites the tour participants to a bar-hopping entertainment in Yoshidamachi where they will get a chance to explore deep into the local downtown, just as if we were playing around in a secret base as once we did in our childhood. After the arrival of Perry, the U.S-Japan diplomacy opened and Yoshidamachi became a pioneering town that started its trading business worldwide. People can explore the attractiveness of both American and Japanese brewing culture in comparison. Then, they will enjoy a delightful pastime tasting Japanese rice wine, “sake”. As a master of “sake”, the bar owner will guide them through the depth of “sake”, and they can enjoy its taste by comparing the Kanagawa brand with the other local brands. Small dishes of food will also be prepared. Wandering in the mystery of fresh brewing culture in the culture-comparison never ends.
