Overview

Tokyo, with its neon-lit splendor and relentless crowds, can often tire first-time visitors with its furious energy. Escape the city and spend the day in more tranquil surroundings on a day-long green tea tasting experience, which includes a walking tour of the Edo-era town Kawagoe. In verdant tea plantations, you’ll harvest, brew, and drink refreshing and detoxifying green tea leaves before exploring the well-preserved streets of Kawagoe, known as Little Edo. Small-group tour limited to 10 people.
  • Full-day tour of a green tea plantation and Edo-style village, Kawagoe from Tokyo
  • Escape the hustle and bustle of the city in favor of nature and history
  • Harvest green tea leaves at a plantation before brewing and drinking the refreshing bounty
  • Take a walking tour of historic Kawagoe, known as Little Edo due to a plethora of Edo-style monuments
  • Small-group tour limited to 10 people
Your day-trip begins at Seibu-Shinjuku station, which is walking distance from Shinjuku station in central Tokyo. Greet your guide outside, then catch your reserved onward train.

Following the journey on an express train, you’ll arrive in Sayama City and greet a local tea master. After a short demonstration on how to carefully harvest green tea leaves, you’ll spend some time picking, rolling, brewing, and drinking refreshing green tea leaves. Plus, you’ll sample the unique delicacy of tempura green tea leaves.

Following a Japanese lunch at your own expense, you’ll proceed to the Edo-style town of Kawagoe. Formerly a prosperous castle town, Kawagoe boasts an array of streets lined with well-preserved Edo-style buildings. Tick off highlights such as Dream Street, Spatiotemporal Bell, Snack Street, and Kawagoe Hikawa Shrine on a relaxed walking tour.

After your experience concludes, you’ll board a return train back to central Tokyo.
