All about the trip
Gotemba is a hidden gem and yet it is an easy day trip or wonderful overnight excursion from Tokyo!
On our full-day (6-hour) tour, you will discover the best local and hidden experiences. Try local specialties in two different locations around the Gotemba area. Explore and connect with the spirit of one of Japan’s friendliest cities.
Enjoy a local lunch from a small hidden gem restaurant. Then you will visit a special zen temple, unlike anything you can see in other parts of Japan. Immerse yourself in a personalized zen experience. After you are fully relaxed and inspired, we will visit a small local brewery and winery where you can try some craft beverages. Feeling refreshed, it will be time to head back to town and visit a family business with generations of tea expertise and then visit with a master artisan. You will make your own traditional and all-natural, indigo-dyed souvenir to bring back with you as an unforgettable memory from your journey.
