What to Expect

you can enjoy the nightlife like locals.

First we visit Masaoka alley across Sendai station. There are Japanese style bars and also modern standing bars.

Next We can enjoy atmosphere of old japan at Iroha alleys. There are more than 100 small stores such as bars, restaurants and unique select shops in this narrow alley.

And finally we visit alleys of Kokubuncho, the largest night entertainment district in Tohoku, Northeast region in Japan.

There are about 3000 restaurants and bars in this area.

What kind of bar do you want to try in Japan? a Izakaya, a Japanese traditional bar, a modern standing bar or an international bar...??? Let’s see how Japanese people enjoy those bars.

I love sake and will provide some great conversation and company! It would be nice to discuss my region, Japanese culture and trandition over a cup of sake!

Important Information

I'm doing another job so Its very helpful if you contact me in advance and I can adjust my schedule!

sometimes I'm available either during the daytime or the night time so my schedule on the website doesn't show my availability perfectly, so please contact me to check my availability!

I can conduct the night tour from Friday to Monday. but sometimes I can adjust the schedule so please ask my availability.

this tour is flexible.

I can arrange the tour depending on your schedule and your preference.

maybe you want to enjoy until more late night?? or maybe you have only for two hours before you take a shinkansen??

please feel free to contact me.

hourly guide fee of this tour is higher than my other tours because the guide also have to order a drink and small dish(this is mandatory at most of Japanese bars)at each bar.

I appreciate your understanding.

Excellent Tours!

I had two tours with Mai, one Sendai City Tour during the Tanabata festival and one of the Matsushima area. Both were excellent and I highly recommend Mai as your tour guide.
