The adventure continues. I had a bed in a big room all to myself and it was very comfortable. The host had a great breakfast laid out for us when we got up in the morning.
I would definitely like to stay here again!
Our next stop was the award winning Aito Tea Farm, where we had green tea and a Japanese sweet.
Macha More, which may have been my favorite place, was next. The original factory was turned into a little cafe and a new factory was built behind it. We started in the cafe area. After being shown how to make the macha, which starts as small tea bits, we got to try making macha ourselves. What fun!
After that, we headed over to the factory for the tour. We were able to follow the path of the tea, and it was very interesting!
Guess what was next? Drinking the macha we made and enjoying a Japanese sweet! There were three types of sweets to choose from. I chose the one that looks like an autumn leaf.
Come back for Part 4 and I'll tell you about lunch and the afternoon activities!
