While we driving through winding mountain road into Wazuka, You will enjoy the scenic view of Ishitera tea plantations where is the most famous view spot in Wazuka. You will continue sight seeing tea fields guided in English about town's tea history. You also actually go inside the tea fields and touch and smell fresh tea leaves. After that, we will visit zen temple to calm our mind to feel how tea was introduced to this area by Buddhist monk. At the small local zen temple, we will go inside the temple and I will demonstrate how traditional Japanese Zazen (seated maditation) is practiced. You will be served your choice of Wazuka unique blend tea drink as well as tradithional Matcha green tea with sweet. If you are lucky, you might meet resident monk at the temple and having tea time together. Please be advised that priest is not always available due to his service for the community. Before returning to the train station, we will stop by the Wazuka-cha cafe where all local farmer's teas and locally made tea sweets are sold.
I've been a yoga/massage therapist and wellness adviser for more than a decade in US and Japan. Since I moved back to Japan, I chose to live this beautiful small village called Tea Utopia in Kyoto. It is perfect place for wellness of being. I love traveling world to check out how local people are living. Here, I can introduce you how Wazuka makes you feel good through my view as a wellness expert. I've been doing community yoga class and learned how doing yoga here cultivate your senses. As a yoga practitioner, I can introduce Zen meditation for anybody who never done before in easy way. I can explain little tea history about how this town's tea culture starts from Zen temple and how Temple and tea are served to people casually with knowledge and passion.
