Tea Garden Near Mt. Fuji
Tea plays an important role in traditional Japanese culture. Green tea is the most commonly consumed beverage in Japan and it's often drank in a powdered form known as matcha. It first arrived from China over 1300 years ago and the Japanese have been in love with it ever since! You can't visit the country without trying a cup for yourself, and if you're looking for a unique Japanese experience then we'd suggest sitting in on a traditional tea ceremony. Better still, why not visit one of the country's tea farms? You can find many of them in Shizuoka Prefecture, which is also the home of Mount Fuji, and there's no better way to enjoy a cup of Japan's favorite beverage than while gazing upon the country's most iconic mountain.
