Open up to hidden and beautiful places, exploring the life of Japanese locals from all walks of life.
What to Expect
Visit Japanese locals and share a one-of-a-kind experience. Let the locals be your host as they tell their stories, guide you through a day in their life, and deepen your understanding of Japan. Your host can be any type of local expert, from Japanese farmers or geisha to artisans and more, all with a wealth of different life stories to share! Enjoy Japan with unique and unforgettable memories.
Tabica hosts includes farmers, fishermen, geisha, ramen chefs, gardeners, monks, and more. They will share how they spend their day, how they become who they are today, guide you through their workplace, and answer any of your questions.
The farm you will be visiting is called the "Nijiiro garden (Rainbow garden)", and it is around a 1-hour drive from Tokyo. You will meet up at the local tour provider's office that is about a 10-minute walk from the Harajuku station at 10:00 am and move to the destination by car.
Once you arrive at the farm, a Japanese local farmer will be your guide for the day. The number of participants is limited to 8 people, so that hospitable service is ensured for each participant. There will be a translator to help you communicate with the monks.
You will spend around 3 to 4 hours at a farm doing different activities you've never experienced before such as harvesting organic vegetables, and cooking lunch with them. You will also get the chance to sit down with a host and ask him any questions you may have. This trip allows you to truly connect with the locals by diving into their real life in Japan.
After the tour, you will head back to Harajuku station to get back to the bustling city life.
