Half Day Tour in Tokyo Challenging the experience Soba Matcha and Origami

Tour feature and details

At first we meet at the lobby of your hotel.
Then you come to my( your guide’s) house in the suburbs of Tokyo.(Ex. It takes about 30 minutes train ride from Shinjuku, city center, to Hino station) From Hino station to my house it takes 5minutes on foot.

On the way in Hono city we drop in the One coin shop and the local super market. At the One coin shop you get your favorite chopsticks, then at the super market you choose your side dish including Tempura etc. for your lunch and Japanese traditional sweets. At my house you try to make and eat hand made Soba noodles, next, to prepare the Matcha, powdered green tea, using bamboo whisk and drink it without the tea ceremony. Then at last you challenge to fold the Origami paper to the shape of a crane bird, a flog or an warrior’s helmet.
Eating Soba noodles, and drinking tea have long been very popular among the Japanese. Soba contains rutin which works to lower blood pressure and green tea contains polyphenol and vitamin C which is good for anti-oxidation. And the Origami also have been familiar to us. Especially the crane is the symbol of longevity, so if someone they know becomes unhealthy, they fold 1000 paper cranes to pray for quick recovery and happiness.

Anyway, enjoy the culture only in Japan while you are staying here!!
