 Hello, and welcome to the science town of Tsukuba! In this bar hopping tour, we will take you through 3 different bars, all serving different Ibaraki food. From a locals perspective, Tsukuba is more of a science-town (think silicon valley but SCIENCE), rather than a travel destination. But Tsukuba hides various hidden treasures, that cannot be experienced in Tokyo or other big cities. In the name of science, drinking is not the only experience provided on this tour. Yes, you can have a photoshoot with a ACTUAL rocket, and sample some SPACE FOOD (ooohhh). Come join us and enjoy Tsukuba from a locals perspective!

Say Cheers in a locals hot-pot restaurant!

After meeting up at Tsukuba station, we will head for a locals bar, hidden behind the busy streets of Tsukuba. Here, you will be able to enjoy “ODEN” (hot pot), a locals favorite! Down some giant glasses of beer and enjoy the exquisite foods only locals enjoy!

Various delicious encounters in an Izakaya bar

Our next bar serves delicious dishes using Ibaraki food items, including 3 types of Ibaraki craft beer. Chow on some Ibaraki pork cutlet, and Tsukuba fried chicken.

Encounter a rocket and a standing bar

Before our final bar, you will be able to take a photo with an actual rocket! In this final standing bar, you will be able to sample some SPACE FOOD, loved by astronauts.
