Experience Details
Looking for an experience that combines Japanese history, culture, food, and an authentic tea ceremony? Right here, folks. Join a Yanaka Ginza food tour and a Japanese tea ceremony in Tokyo! You’ll dine at Japanese restaurants, visit a specialty shop for a tea ceremony and matcha-making experience, and visit a tea house to enjoy a sip (tea) and sweets (anmitsu). Itinerary: Enjoy lunch at a soba noodle restaurant Visit a specialty shop for a tea ceremony and matcha-making experience with wagashi Enjoy omurice (omelet rice) at a restaurant Visit a tea house to enjoy anmistu (a Japanese dessert) and tea Located in the heart of Tokyo, Yanaka Ginza unfolds as a time capsule, preserving the nostalgic charm of old-world Japan. This historic district beckons visitors with its cobblestone streets, traditional wooden storefronts, and an enchanting blend of Edo-era architecture. Soba Noodles: Begin your culinary adventure at a local soba noodle restaurant. Soba noodles are a type of thin Japanese noodle made from buckwheat flour or a combination of buckwheat and wheat flour. They have a distinct earthy flavor and a slightly chewy texture. Tea Ceremony and Matcha-Making: Embark on a cultural escapade as you visit a specialty shop for a unique Japanese tea ceremony and matcha-making experience. Engage with the art of tea preparation and savor the serene ambiance as you enjoy wagashi. Omelet Rice: Try omurice, a fusion dish that harmonizes Western-style omelets with Japanese fried rice, at a charming local restaurant. It typically consists of ketchup-seasoned fried rice (often mixed with vegetables, meat, or seafood) wrapped in a thin omelet. Tea and Japanese Desserts: Conclude your journey at a traditional tea house for a sip and something sweet (anmitsu). Anmitsu is a traditional Japanese dessert consisting of small, colorful cubes of agar jelly served with sweet red bean paste, boiled peas, fruit slices (often pineapple, peach, and mandarin orange), and sweet syrup.
