Overview
Indulge in not one, but two of Japan's liquid delicacies, tea and sake. On this all inclusive, private 7 hour tour explore Kyoto's tea and sake making capitals of Uji and Fushimi. Learn all about the way tea and sake are produced, sample some for yourself, and delve into the rich history and scenic views of both areas. Only slightly off the beaten path, avoid the crowds at the main tourist spots while you have your own expert, native English speaking guide show you around. Some highlights include multiple UNESCO world heritage sites, a unique tea experience where you will learn the proper way to prepare Kyoto's finest of all green teas, including eating said tea leaves with ponzu sauce! In Fushimi sample sake, see some of a sake brewery, and enjoy the old sake facilities. Everything from temples, lunch, and sake are 100% included so no need to stress about hidden fees. For half day tours focusing on only one area check out the 4 hour "Only Tea" and "Only Sake" options.
