Horai Bridge 897.4 Tea Gift Shop
Enjoy an exclusive green tea experience along the Oi River, Shimada City
897.4 Tea Gift Shop, Shimada City, Shizuoka, stands on one bank of Horai Bridge. The bridge is registered in the Guinness World Records as the World’s longest wooden footbridge. The bridge which spans 897.4 meters can be read “yakunashi”, which means "no worries" in English. Additionally, the long bridge is believed to attract good luck and worryfree longevity. The footpath at the other end of the bridge leads visitors to the Makinohara Tea Plantation. A magnificent view of the UNESCO World Heritage Site Mt. Fuji can be enjoyed while crossing the bridge on clear sky days. At the tea gift shop, you can also enjoy an exclusive taste of premium deep-steamed green tea that goes well with Kuro Yakko, a local special bean paste cake. Please enjoy the taste and flavor of green tea grown in the rich nature of Shimada City blessed by the Oi River while sitting outdoors on Tatami-benches, admiring the view of the spectacular long wooden bridge.
