Ippodo Tea

http://www.ippodo-tea.co.jp/en/
Founded in 1717, Ippodo is a Japanese green tea store with located in the heart of Kyoto city. The characteristics of Japanese green tea vary greatly depending on production center, manufacturing method, climate, and terroir within Japan. Ippodo is well known for producing a green tea with a calm fragrance and refined sweetness, a flavor loved in Japan for three centuries. Furthermore, Ippodo itself carefully conducts a blending process to provide tea of the same quality and consistency in flavor throughout the year.

Tea Tasting Workshop

The flavor of Japanese green tea depends on how each is produced and how it is brewed. Learn about Japanese tea and Ippodo tea with a focus on aromas, colors, and flavors. Taste and compare the four basic categories, matcha, gyokuro, sencha, and bancha green tea.

Terada Honke

https://www.teradahonke.co.jp/english.htm
Terada Honke has brewed sake for more than 330 years in Kozaki; the ‘Town of Brewage’ located in Chiba Prefecture 87.5km to the northeast of Tokyo.
We make naturally brewed sake using organic rice, with the help of the yeasts and various microorganisms involved in sake making. In contrast to the modern mechanized sake brewage, all the work is done manually. We make our sake according to the ancient Kimoto method (a way to ferment with wild microorganisms taking plenty of time) which most sake brewers today have stopped practicing. The only ingredients are rice, water and koji malt (steamed rice inoculated with starch-breaking molds). Our sake is made following the law of nature, borrowing the help of the natural microorganisms inhabiting the air within the old walls of the brewery .
The maximum occupancy of this event is 40 people. The application will be closed as soon as the number of participants reaches the limit.
