Visit Kinosaki Onsen

A cozy hot spring town renowned for its hot springs and atmosphere

Enjoy gorgeous tea plantation views, pick your own tea leaves, and use them to make your own tea!

While tea is famously cultivated in Shizuoka and Uji, the countryside of the Tajima region near Kinosaki Onsen also houses a beautiful tea plantation where you can pick tea leaves. In this activity, visit a local tea plantation and learn how to properly pick tea. Afterwards, with the help of a local tea instructor, steep the tea leaves in the traditional way to enjoy with a lunch of local, natural ingredients. This activity is offered from May 21st to the 23rd, which is the peak time for gathering these leaves.

Enjoy gorgeous views of a local tea plantation and learn how to brew your own fragrant tea!

Grind the tea leaves by hand to release their flavor before adding to hot water.
