The deer here at the park are known to be friendly and may even bow at you for a little treat. After our friendly encounter with the deer we will experience traditional green tea ceremony. The tea ceremony (sado: the way of the tea) is a ceremonial way of preparing and drinking tea. The entire process of creating and serving green tea is a form of art in Japan appreciated since the 9th century. You will have the chance to taste a cup of authentic green tea prepared by the host.
