I’ve been a tea ceremony host and international cooking instructor for visitors, and Japanese people. And also I've brought my Japanese cooking classes to overseas. The more I've experienced hosting, the more I wish to share fun time with my guests. So I set up this matcha town walking experience including interesting facts about Japanese tea.

I am so lucky and happy that I took this tour. I signed up for this tour because I like matcha but this tour explores so much more than that. Terumi will show you through the wonderful town of Uji and of course the tea history of the town.
