In recent years, green tea cafes operated by green tea specialty shops are gaining popularity. Green tea sweets served at these cafes are also very popular. Various sweets using green tea have been created, including both Japanese and western confections such as rice cake with green tea cream, waffles, and so on.

This 3 hour excursion is focused on experiencing how to prepare green tea, and enjoying lunch and desert after that at a green tea cafe. Savor sweet treats that capture the refreshing aroma and distinctive flavor of green tea while relaxing with a cup of tea. This is an ultimate green tea experience !
