Experience Details
Visit Fuji City in Shizuoka, one of Japan’s most prolific tea producing prefectures where 40% of Japan’s green tea is grown, for a tea farm tour that promises a peaceful afternoon in nature. At Obuchi Sasaba, neat rows of vibrant green tea bushes stretch up to Mt. Fuji, offering one of the closest and most breathtaking views of the majestic mountain. Guided by Honda-san, a fifth generation tea master with deep knowledge of every stage of tea making, travelers can take this chance to slow down for a moment and appreciate nature, drinking a cup of tea in the middle of the tea fields. Seated on a wooden platform surrounded by the vast field of green tea bushes, guests can watch as Honda-san prepares some local Shizuoka tea for everyone to enjoy. Take the moment to be fully present, marveling at the color and fragrance of the tea, a slight breeze rustling through the surrounding tea bushes. During this Shizuoka tea farm tour, Honda-san will show guests how to brew the perfect cup of tea. The water temperature and timing are of utmost importance in tea brewing. The number of times the tea leaves are steeped also has an impact on the flavor and aroma. After leaving Obuchi Sasaba and moving on to Honda-san’s own tea farm, visitors will get the chance to brew their own tea, with another unique view of Mount Fuji. Guests will leave this Shizuoka tea farm tour feeling refreshed and with newfound knowledge about Japanese tea culture and how to prepare a delicious cup of tea.
