We have launched our first virtual experiences here in Japan! This first one is making inspired DIY cocktails while learning about Japanese ingredients and influence in the craft cocktail world!

Join our local expert Lauren. She has 20 years experience in the food and beverage and tourism industries. She will share some fun DIY cocktails and help answer questions you may have about life in Tokyo as well as some of our Arigato Japan hidden gems, tips and tricks in the city, and in making your own delicious cocktails and mocktails at home.

We aim to :

 

– Enjoy a fun and positive experience

I did an at home virtual experience with Arigato Food Tours. The theme was DIY cocktails and we learned how to make two seasonal cocktails. It was very fun and we learned a lot about cocktails in general! It was a great way to spend time during quarantine and I totally recommend it!
