What's The Spirits of Japan Tour All About?
If you’re after a Ghost Tour, I heard Japan stopped them in a spirit-ban!
But if you’re a whiskey and spirit lover, then you’ve come to the right place as Japanese esprit and spirits blend as seamlessly as their whiskeys on this 13-day journey through the best of Japanese culture and its unrivalled quest for perfection in a glass.
Last year, Japan’s oldest whiskey distillery, Suntory Yamazaki, won the title of the world’s best single malt. And this is where your tour starts before being whiskeyed away on private tours of ancient treasured sites and majestic gardens.
Providing all those intricate smooth notes, your Oriental odyssey will also take you to the Miyagikyo Distillery (famous for its award winning Nikka malts) and feature tours through historic sake breweries that date as far back as the 1600’s.
What's Next On The Menu?
Next on the menu is a tour of The Land of the Rising Sun’s leading beer breweries, with the journey finally culminating with dinner at the world’s most coveted three Michelin star sushi restaurant, Sukiyabashi Jiro.
No taste-bud will be left untouched as local flavours such as kaiseki, sushi and tsukemen will all be sampled on this journey through Japan’s breathtaking destinations of Tokyo, Takayama, Kanazawa, Kyoto and Osaka. You’ll taste the heart and soul of Japan in every mouthful, sip and sight that embody the dedication and craftsmanship of its master distillers, artisans, and chefs. And if you sample enough whiskey and sake, you might even get to see some ghosts.
And if you sample enough whiskey and sake, you might even get to see some ghosts after all. You may even see Godzilla if you drink enough!
