What we'll do
This tour offers you a unique experience of exquisite Japanese tea. You will learn about the world of Japanese tea while making it, tasting it and even eating tea leaves. This amazing course is held in a cozy tea shop which was designed by Kuma Kengo, the architect who designed the national stadium for the 2020 Olympics.
After the tea experience, the tour visits Ueno Park, a place of relaxation for citizens and the nation’s center of art. The best time to visit is when the cherry blossoms of 1,200 trees are in bloom during late March to early April.
