Green Tea Picking and Kawagoe Walking Tour from Shinjuku
IntroductionOn this full-day group tour, you will start with a brief introduction to green tea, explaining the history of Japanese green tea.
You will then have the opportunity to pick the tea and make your own green tea with your freshly-harvested leaves.
Along with your freshly brewed green tea, you will get to enjoy green tea leaf tempura!
This is an experience only offered at the green tea field because it's so fresh! Green tea in Sayama, called Sayama-cha, is known as one of the greatest green teas of Japan along with Shizuoka-cha and Uji-cha.
After this special green tea experience, your tour escort will take you on a stroll around Kawagoe with your group.
Kawagoe is one of the historical towns near Tokyo, known as little Edo. Here, you can enjoy local snacks and beer.
If there is time, you will also visit a local temple and shrine.
There will be a maximum of 10 people per group.
