1-Day Iris Flower Festival &
Sake Brewery Tour
Best season: early June
This area, which is called Tama, is a neighborhood located to the west of the metropolitan area in Tokyo. There are mountains, rivers, good old Japanese culture and sound of nature instead of crowds, skyscrapers and bustle of a city. In such surroundings, people and nature coexist in harmony.
1. Get Dressed in Yukata
Meet at JR Shinjuku Station and get dressed in a yukata (a casual cotton kimono ,usually worn in summer) at a shop.
And we will head to Higashi-murayama City by a chartered taxi.
2. Kaiseki Cuisine Restaurant
Kaiseki cuisine means Japanese multi-course meal that was originally a light meal served before a tea ceremony. But it has been sophisticated as a traditional Japanese cuisine and served at exclusive restaurants and Japanese-style hotels (ryokan) today.
*We will visit other restaurants when this restaurant is not available.
3. Iris Flower Festival
8,000 Japanese irises of 300 varieties bloom at the Kitayama Park. We can ride on a jinrikisha (Japanese rickshaw) and go to the Seifukuji Temple where a national treasure is stored.
Some music events and dance performances will be also held.
