The Best Green Tea Picking Experience in Japan!

The Best Green Tea Picking Experience in Japan!

Are you ready for the best green tea picking experience in Japan? Get ready to write this on your bucket list, as this will be an experience that you won’t forget! 

But how can we say with confidence that Kuraya Narusawa’s green tea picking experience truly is the best? What sets it apart from the rest? 

  1. It is one of the very few places that you can dress up in a traditional Japanese tea picking outfit and pick fresh green tea.
  2. The staff members teach you how to put on the outfit, rather than just doing it for you, which gives you a true sense of accomplishment and ownership over the experience. 
  3. You can enjoy fantastic views of Mt. Fuji and the Izu peninsula as you pick green tea at a high elevation.
  4. You can feel like a local and be guided with love and warmth as the staff at Kuraya Narusawa go above and beyond to make your experience the best it can be!

After putting on the traditional tea picking outfit, you’ll be guided to the tea plantations. 

Your guide will then show you which tea leaves are ideal for picking. After hearing her explanation, you can begin your harvest! 

Our Tips 💡

  • Bring comfortable footwear such as sneakers or durable sandals as you’ll need to walk up a slight hill to reach the tea plantations.
  • Make use of the free lockers.

After picking tea leaves you’ll be guided back to the store and given a cup of ice-cold green tea! 

What’s more, is that the entire experience can all be done in just one hour! This will free up your itinerary for more fun experiences!

How to Book this Tea Picking Experience:

As all bookings and tours made directly with Kuraya Narusawa tea plantation are only available in Japanese, it may be difficult for non-Japanese speakers to organize this experience. If you are in need of assistance booking, our staff at Curious Little Bunny will be happy to organize an English-guided tea picking experience for small groups (available for groups of four people or more).

    Hi! We are visiting Japan next month from the United States and will be staying in the Gotemba area May 14-16th. We are very interested in this green tea picking experience for one of the days we are there! As your post mentioned, we were hoping to get assistance in booking an English-guided tour. There are only 2 of us, but we were wondering what the price would be for 2 people and if that were possible, even if we had to pay extra.

    1. Hi Katie! Thank you for your comment! I will send an email directly to your email address with the green tea picking experience (English-guided) information and price for two people.

      1. Hi, just saw this post and my family and I are going next year and I was wondering if you can also send me the guide as well
