Izu Tea-Harvesting Tour

Head to the Izu Peninsula for a day of culture in picture-postcard surroundings.

Don traditional cotton coats and fill your wicker basket with freshly plucked tea leaves in the serene fields of Shizuoka Prefecture.

Fuel your post-tea-picking hunger with a pasta lunch at an Italian restaurant.

After lunch, head to Mishima Skywalk, Japan’s longest suspension bridge, for a stunning panoramic view of Mount Fuji and Suruga Bay.

With limited spots available, sign up today.
