Highlights

Discover hidden drinking-holes in the maze of Sendai Station while also exploring the tasty delights of the underground basement floor. Get a comprehensive ‘taste’ of Sendai’s sake scene in a quick and easy 40 min tour! Be sure to keep your stylish sake-cup holder around your neck at all times in case of sudden sake tasting. 

The tour will begin at one of the station’s more unusual locations – the 100 yen local sake vending machine! Be introduced to the art of ‘tachi-nomi’ (stand-up drinking) while your guide shows you around the nearby souvenir stores. 

Next, descent to the basement floor through the S-PAL Sendai East Department Store (built in 2016 following the earthquake disaster) and be guided through a maze-like path to the restaurant area featuring 27 different stores. Take some notes on which restaurants to come back to during your stay in Sendai! 

Finally, stop by a cozy sake-specialty izakaya bar to enjoy a sake-tasting set! Compare two different varieties of local sake alongside a tasty appetizer. Next door to the izakaya is a sake specialty store where you can find varieties from all over the Tohoku region, including some special limited-edition sake only sold at Sendai Station! 

Become an expert in local sake in just 40 mins! Get lost in the maze of delicious goods and drink like one of the locals. Let your friendly local guide show you the way ~ !

 

このツアーでは、まずは駅の中にありながら気軽に立ち飲みができる、少し珍しい地酒の自動販売機に行きます。旅行者のみなさんに便利でおしゃれなおみやげ売り場を案内します。

その後、震災後2016年にできたエスパル仙台東館の中を通って地下に降りて、少し迷路のような道を通って27店舗が軒を連ねるレストラン街を案内します。最後に、駅構内に出て居心地の良い居酒屋バーで日本酒の飲み比べとお通しを楽しみましょう。さらにお店を出たら、駅構内限定販売の日本酒が売っている場所をお知らせできます!

このツアーで仙台駅から周辺の地下街を実際に訪れることができます。地下街の路地に迷い込んで、地元の人になってください! ガイドが一緒ですので迷いません!
