The Kyoto Matcha Green Tea Tour - Green tea fans will love our tour to the town of Uji in Kyoto — the home of Matcha.
The green tea and matcha (powdered green tea) produced here in Uji are famous for their quality not only in Japan, but also all over the world.
A trip to Uji will give you many chances to experience and taste Matcha and other types of green tea in a variety of beverages and foods.
Also while visiting Uji you can see the gorgeous and famous Byodoin temple, a UNESCO World Heritage site. This special tour takes you away from the overcrowded tourist areas of Tokyo for a beautiful visit to the historic resort area of Kyoto’s ancient noble families.
