In my Japan trip post last time. I mentioned I visit Ippodo store for buying the items for my family. It is Hajime-no-Ippodo which is the starter kit for making matcha tea. Now it’s time to open it.
Speaking of famous green tea producers in Japan. One of them must be Ippodo. The over 300 years Kyoto tea producer that has its branch in New York. After I left NHK Studio Park, I had a chance to visit its branch in Marunouchi, Tokyo.
In the earlier post when I made the reservation of the train. I chose to ride the late train because I didn’t know when GEM concert would be finished. So I I had to rush to Tokyo Station to book the new train after the concert was ended earlier than I expected at about 16:00.
However all earlier trains were fully booked. To kill train waiting time. I went to the cafe in Harajuku where specializes in green tea.
