Kanpai! – An Izakaya Survival Course

Kanpai! – An Izakaya Survival Course

Your neighbourhood izakayas serve the most wonderful food, but sometimes we are too afraid to pass under the noren and dive into all that deliciousness. Let us take away all your etiquette and menu anxieties!

Join Ayana-sensei in a 2-hour hands-on lesson around the table in one of Azabu-juban’s friendliest izakayas.

In a small group you will practise and conquer:

  • Greetings on entering
  • Negotiating the 2-hour drinks package
  • Ordering drinks
  • Sake etiquette
  • Deciphering the menu
  • Ordering without a menu: classic izakaya dishes
  • Asking for the bill
