Hi! I've traveled to Australia, the Philippines, Thailand, and Taiwan. Through those experiences, I saw a lot of different cultures and customs, which made me realize how unique Japanese culture is. One of the most unique cultures within the country is the practice of drinking in local places, which I would love to share with you on this bar hopping nightlife food tour in Niigata! During this Snowy Bar Hopping food tour, we will bring you to fantastic old bars and izakaya in Tokamachi, letting you soak up the snow country food culture, as well as the local nightlife. There are also a lot of delicious and authentic foods you can try, like Ochazuke (boiled rice in soup), Hegi-Soba (buckwheat noodles made with seaweed), tsumari pork, and much more! Magical Trip carefully handpicked the best food & drink combos, enough for a full dinner meal served at two different izakaya bars. You can select from various types (over 30 kinds) of recommended foods and drinks. A vegetarian menu is also available. You can order the foods you like based on the tour guide's explanation and recommendation in each Izakaya, so don't worry, even if you are a vegetarian or have food allergies. We offer food & drinks at a special price, which is much cheaper than the actual price! Of course, you can order additional food and drinks at each bar on your own. The local people, especially when they drink at night, are super friendly. Let's have a drink (or a lot of drinks) with them! Our local tour guide will take you to places you can't find or enjoy by yourself, and will help you enjoy the Niigata nightlife like a local!! On top of that, this is a small-group food tour, so you can enjoy the night like you're going out with friends! (Please check our reviews on tripadvisor!) Solo travelers, friends, couples and family, all are welcome! Come join us on this bar hopping adventure! Let's have an awesome experience together in this unique atmosphere without any cultural or language barriers.
