Visit Nishio’s matcha


Nishio City is one of Japan’s leading matcha producing areas,
and uses most of its tea leaves for producing green tea rather than green tea.

There are two types of matcha: tea ceremony and product, which are more expensive. Matcha for products is used in many ingredients, including Haagen-Dazs ice cream. Every year from late April to May, tea leaves are called Ichibancha, and only tea leaves are used for tea ceremony. The experience of picking the best tea used for this tea ceremony matcha is rare. In addition, matcha is only ground tea that has been dried from tea leaves and ground with a stone mortar. Matcha using a crusher is not matcha. In this project, you can tour a matcha factory with the guidance of an expert and experience the making of matcha by grinding Tencha with a stone mill. In addition, you can experience making and drinking matcha yourself. At the same time, you can learn simple tea ceremony and enjoy seasonal Japanese sweets. * Comes with Nishio Matcha Latte souvenir. After lunch with Petonkatsu and Sashimi, transfer to Nishio City Historical Park, and visit a tea room, Shoin, Karesansui Garden, Nishio Castle Ushitoraga and others at the former Konoe House relocated from Kyoto with a guide. To do. After that, you will visit the miso brewery (Miso Park), a place where you can make miso, a traditional Japanese food and a specialty of Nishio. There are many types of miso, including red miso, white miso, bean miso, and combined miso. Have some of them eat and compare and know the difference. This tour is a recommended project that allows you to deeply experience Japanese culture.
