What to Expect

Shizuoka is the No. 1 Tea producer in Japan. We will visit two tea-related facilities on this tour. They are located in Makinohara plateau, the largest tea plantation area in Japan.
At Grinpia Makinohara, there are several activities that can be done. You can try tea picking in the tea fields and look around the tea factory to see the whole process of making green tea. The Japanese restaurant there is also nice. The green tea mixed-in buckwheat noodles and tea leaf Tempura are recommended.
At Ocha-no-Sato or the World Tea Museum, you can learn everything about tea there including a variety of tea cultures across the world. It has a tea house and a garden. You can experience an authentic tea ceremony.
Since I have a certificate of Japanese tea instructor, it would be my pleasure to help you find out more about Japanese tea through this tour.
I think it will be a special experience for you to spend a day in the spacious tea fields!

☆  Tea picking is available from the mid-April to the beginning of Oct.
Other option includes an experience to learn "How to make a good cup of tea!".
☆ If you are interested in other places in Shizuoka, I can add it to your itinerary.
Please don’t hesitate to ask.

Hello, I’m Hiroyo. I was born and brought up in Shizuoka. After living in Tokyo and in England, eventually I came back to Shizuoka. It is really a good place to live.
I have been interested in Japanese traditional culture. I used to be in a Kendo(Japanese fencing) club and a Japanese flower arrangement club when I was a student. I got a degree of Sho-dan(first-dan) in Kendo, and a diploma in follower arrangement. I also got a certificate as a Japanese tea instructor. It would be my great pleasure to help you find out more about Japanese culture.
Shizuoka is a lovely place to visit. It has many historical sites, traditional culture, abundant nature and a wide variety of local specialties including green tea, wasabi, many kinds of fruits and sea food fresh from the sea! You will be sure to enjoy them. Hope to see you here in Shizuoka!

We spent a wonderful day with Hiroyo tea sight seeing in Shizuoka. Even though the tour was in December we still had much fun visiting the World Tea Museum and a local tea factory. Hiroyo has excellent knowledge about tea and Shizuoka, and she is a great communicator so it really made for a wonderful tour!
