Obubu's guided tea tour is a must for any Japan enthusiast, the trip out into Wazuka is/was worth it alone. Hiro and the intern Anna (Ana?) were particularly welcoming and knowledgeable (everyone else was super lovely too, I just didn't 100% catch their names) and...More

I like green tea but I normally wouldn't go out of my way for one. On this tour, I am so glad that I did. Our jokey host, Matsu-san, made the day fun as did the interns who assisted him. I didn't mind the high...More
