Are you a green tea lover or food lover? Then join us on this Matcha Town Walking Tour! On this tour, you will be exploring Uji, a beautiful historic district that is often affectionately known as a tea haven for tea lovers and connoisseurs ・・ Before visiting a traditional-style tea house, the participants will learn details of matcha through the tea shops.
LOCATION DESCRIPTION :
Uji is blessed with a beautiful landscape centred on the Uji River and Mr. Asahi and rich historical and cultural resources such as world heritage sites. Uji has always walked along with the history of Japan as a tea cultural centre at one time and as a stage of war at another time. The historic sites scattered throughout the city convey the breath of each era to the present, inviting us into the past like a time machine!
