Important Information

If you want to try a Japanese tea ceremony or buy some tea items (bowls, bamboos items, tea powder etc.), I can show you the best places in Shizuoka.
In case of rain, the tea picking experience will be cancelled. In that case I would propose you a visit to the tea factory.

I offer tours to experience the Japanese countryside, but I'm also a freelance guide. I can guide you in English, French, or Italian. I will give you extensive explanations of the history and culture of Japan. If you like detailed information, you will like my tours.
I'm particularly fond of Japanese tea ceremonies that I have been learning about for years. I live in the hometown of Japanese tea in Shizuoka. I would like to show you the lifestyle of this part of Japan, both traditional and present.
