Matcha More Café

River Area

Organic matcha enjoyed at a café beside the Oigawa River

Matcha More Café in Nabeshima Village located beside the Oigawa River is a place worth going out of your way to visit. The teas grown in this mountainous area are irrigated with water sourced from the river nearby. Matcha More Café also serves as a laboratory for young tea producers to work on the sustainable production of organic matcha direct from the field to your cup. 

Your matcha is ground to order at the café, where you can enjoy a conversation with local farmers over the counter. Depending on when you visit, there may also be experiences on offer—you can try activities such as grinding matcha, tea-tasting after picking, steaming and squeezing, and planting a seedling. 

Visitor tours of the tea factory can be arranged in advance. This serves as a starting place for locals to expand the future possibilities to communicate with visitors.
