    What to Expect

    In the morning, we will drive to Shakotan Penninsula for a walk through some stunning coastal scenery and a chance to take in the famous blue ocean. It’s a breathtaking view spot.

    We’ll then have time to try some local seafood for lunch.

    After this we will take a leisurely drive to Yoichi Distillery, where the famous Nikka Whiskey is produced. You can hear some explanation about the founder Masataka Taketsuru’s Scottish inspiration and dream (we can provide translation for the Japanese tour), and then try a sample for yourself (soft-drinks are provided for non-alcohol drinkers and those under 20 years old).
