PARU has teamed up with the Suruga Marketing & Tourism Bureau alongside Asia Answers to create a uniquely curated tea tour led by PARU founder Amy Truong and a local Suruga representative. Each tea tour departure will be filled with experiences that will provide tea enthusiasts a deeper understanding and appreciation of tea production and culture in Japan. Read FAQ. 

Tea Tour Details

  • The first day of the tour will be dedicated to everyone's arrival and check-in. Arrival and check should be done individually. Please ensure enough time is planned when booking your airfare for travel to Shizuoka from the airport you will be arriving to. Transportation from the airport to Shizuoka is not included in the tour cost.
  • Private group transportation for Suruga-based experiences is included in the pricing.
  • Both tour departures will have similar scheduled experiences with daily breakfast available at the hotel, one set lunch, and two dinners.
  • Tea farm visits will require some degree of walking through natural paths and slight inclines. It is highly suggested that you pack proper footwear and attire.
  • Any activities, experiences, and expenditures beyond what is scheduled during each tour (e.g. shopping, extended stay in Japan, transportation outside of scheduled experiences) will be the responsibility of each individual guest.

Booking Details

  • Visitors from the US and Canada in possession of a passport with at least 6 months’ validity from date of return and one blank visa page, will be granted an entry stamp on arrival, at no cost. People of other nationalities must inform your travel agent who will advise on your requirements.
