Night Activities in Yamagata City 

Make the most of your winter adventures in Yamagata Prefecture with a night out exploring the lively bar districts and extravagant dinner courses right in front of Yamagata Station.  

Going out for a bite or a beer in Japan can be perplexing, if not downright a little intimidating. Traditional Japanese izakaya (drinking and eating establishments) can be especially difficult, considering such buildings are often windowless with nothing more than a vertical curtain letting you know they’re in business. However, this doesn’t mean you settle for fast food or chain restaurants.

After all, one of the best parts about visiting Yamagata Prefecture is the vibrant and delicious culinary arts found across this mountainous region. 


That’s where these tours have you covered. These night courses take you through the streets of downtown Yamagata to the top bars and restaurants with an emphasis on delicious local food and friendly local owners.
