Drink and eat your way around downtown Itami! Returning to Itami for the 17th time is the Itami Downtown bar – Japan’s biggest bar walk event. Inspired by Hokkaido’s Hakodate bar walk, the Itami Downtown Bar was the first event of its kind in Honshu, and with 98 participating businesses and over 10,000 visitors every year, remains the largest in Japan.

At all of the participating business, tickets can be exchanged for a drink and dish. Visitors who were unable to use up all of their tickets may use them as \700 coupons at any of the establishments participating in the ‘after bar’.

The event coincides with the Otoraku Music Night, where musicians of every genre take their performances around the city center, stopping by restaurants on the bar walk trail to entertain revelers.

Tickets go on sale September 19th at businesses around Itami, including Oimatsu Brewery Shop, Shirayuki Brewery Village Chojugura Shop, and Itami Tourist Products Gallery.
