Kyoto Tea Farm Walking Tour

Experience the true spirit of tea-making with a tour of one of Japan's oldest and most esteemed tea towns! Learn about the environment, culture and heritage of tea in a small tea town in Kyoto's mountains, dedicated to making tea for over 800 years.

Deep in the mountains of Kyoto, is a small tea town called Wazuka, considered to be one of the most beautiful villages in Japan. For over 800 years, Wazuka was chosen as a region for tea-making, with 300 families being dedicated to producing premium quality tea whose spirit is at the heart of Japanese culture.

Join this beautiful tea-farm walking tour for a peaceful retreat from the crowded cities, and a true experience of what it means to make tea. Your guide for this tour is a certified Uji Tea Sommelier with over 20 years of tour guide experience. After a drive to the heart of Wazuka and a brief orientation, you will enjoy some fine organic matcha and a local treat before taking a walk through history.

As you walk through the sweeping emerald tea fields and enjoy the fresh air and beautiful views, the guide will explain some of the unique growing techniques used by the tea farmers to produce different types of tea. You will also see and learn about many types of flora and fauna in the area, and may even have a chance to taste some unique wild vegetables or encounter numerous native animal species.

Your guide will also show you Wazaku's historical sites, local architecture, and a 1400-year-old Kitayama Sugi tree, the oldest of its kind in all of Kyoto prefecture. After the walk, you will go to a traditional tea house to enjoy locally made lunch of onigiri with delicious local tea and Japanese sweets, while enjoying the view of the tea fields
