Grasses such as Japanese silver grass and Sasa broadleaf bamboo around the tea field are cut and spread as an organic fertilizer on the tea field. It was designated as a GIAHS (Globally Important Agricultural Heritage System) site in 2013. From autumn to winter you can enjoy the experience of spreading grasses. In addition, you can look around tea fields, enjoy the taste of several kinds of tea cultivars. Unrefined tea leaves (Aracha) have a particularly special taste and flavor. Tea farmers with a Japanese Tea Instructor certification will serve you a tasty green tea.
