Now that the borders of Japan are finally open, my team plans to restart our tea tours starting in the spring of 2023. To ensure our guests feel more personal and exclusive, we will offer tea farm tours for small private groups of 2-4 people. When the tour details are finalized, we will announce the tour details on this page, on my Instagram @eswakito, and in our newsletter.

About Shizuoka Prefecture
Home to Mt. Fuji, Japan’s highest mountain, and Suruga Bay, Japan’s deepest sea, Shizuoka Prefecture is blessed with rich and diverse nature, geography, climate, and traditions. Its rich terroir offers authentic and fresh Japanese food and Japanese tea. The prefectural capital, Shizuoka City, is the perfect blend of nature and city and allows you to experience the slow and genuine Japanese lifestyle.

 

About Shizuoka Tea
With a long history of tea developed by Zen monks, samurai, and tea masters, Shizuoka Prefecture has over 20 distinctive tea regions, which account for about 40% of Japan’s tea production. It also plays a significant role as a distribution center for Japanese tea. About 60% of the tea produced in the country is gathered in Shizuoka City’s Tea Town, refined by skilled tea masters, and distributed throughout the country. Furthermore, The modern tea cafes near Shizuoka Station, more akin to stylish coffee shops, make this city a one-of-a-kind place to experience all things tea: the farms, the processing, the traditions, and the latest trends in consumption.

 

How to get to Shizuoka City
Located on the Golden Route connecting Tokyo with famous cities such as Nagoya, Kyoto, Osaka, Kobe, Hiroshima, and Fukuoka, Shizuoka Station is only 60 minutes from Tokyo Station and 90 minutes from Kyoto Station by Shinkansen bullet train. With such easy access, you can make a day trip from Tokyo or stop off on your way from Tokyo to Kyoto. Plus, if you have a JR Rail Pass, you can get to the station from other JR stations at no extra cost.

Many travelers pass through the station without realizing the beauty of this place. Why not take some time away from the hustle and bustle of big cities or popular rural destinations to relax?
