Maction Planet offers private tours of Tokyo’s finest whisky bars, restaurants and nearby distilleries. Japanese Whisky is regularly voted as the some of the best in the world. On our tours, you combine the flavours of Japanese whisky with a guided adventure through local backstreets, historic traditions, and soaring sights – giving a real feel for the life and history of the city, and beyond.
Enjoy visits to small craft distilleries such as Ichiro’s Malt or the big boys Suntory and Kirin, where you can sample and purchase rare and exclusive whiskies: 50 year Yamazaki… Only-in-Japan Chichibus and Nikkas… Anyone for a 10-year peated malt finished for two years in a Kikyogahara Merlot wine cask?
Some of Tokyo’s best whisky bars are well-known. However, a large number of them have no English language information about them. It’s to these hidden places that the whisky connoisseurs of the city go to sample domestic and international tipples.
For our guests who live in countries where excellent whisky is hard to come by – you’ve come to the right place. Tokyo is the perfect place to discover the Japanese whisky scene, and there is an excellent selection of whiskies from around the world, which can be sampled at reasonable prices.
The chance to kick back with a dram of a unique tipple in their evocative atmosphere is something really quite special.
It is possible to visit several distilleries as a day trip from Tokyo. These are set in incredible locations with staggeringly lovely scenery – at the base of Mount Fuji, deep in remote forest, in the mountain ranges surrounding the Musashino Plain or beyond!
Experience the sights, sounds and aromas and gain a newfound appreciation for the craftsmanship, energy and patience that goes into every drop of Japanese whisky. At these amazing places you can try distillery exclusive whiskies and shop for some rare bottles straight from the source.
Tokyo is home to some of the best whisky bars in world. How can we make that audacious claim? Mac, Founder and Lead Guide of Maction Planet, has visited over 100 countries and knows a good bar when he sees one. With a stint living in Edinburgh prior to moving to Tokyo, and over 50 visits to Ireland, Mac has toured some of the world’s most important, historic and remotest distilleries.
Maction Planet’s core philosophy is that we do not believe in the ‘compartmentalisation of tourism’. Just because you have signed up for a Whisky Tour, does not mean you will only get whisky. We make sure you experience the history, culture, architecture and food of The World’s Greatest Metropolis. Join us!
