Murakami Tea Garden

A 100-Year Old Tea Production Site Set Above the Clouds With a View of Mt. Fuji

At an altitude of 350m with a view of both Mt. Fuji and the clouds, this tea plantation is truly a "sky tea paradise".

At this tea plantation, the third and youngest generations of the Murakami family, who are passionate about the tea industry, cultivate tea using mainly organic fertilizers.

In order to see this sea of clouds you must visit during the correct weather conditions, an act decided purely by the heavens. No matter when you visit, there is a sense of elegance in drinking tea while dreaming of the sea of clouds at the plantation.

"Mikko Black Tea" is a black tea with a sublime aroma and an elegant sweet aftertaste which lingers after consuming. The "indigenous tea", which has been grown since the opening of the plantation, has been around for over 100 years and is grown organically without pesticides, giving the ""wild-tasting"" green tea a bitter taste with a hint of umami.

Matcha Calligraphy

A New Experience With Calligraphy Using Matcha

A popular experience including "tea pairing" (a course meal made with seasonal ingredients and paired with tea brewed by a tea master) and our very own "matcha calligraphy®︎" (a new concept in which calligraphy is written with matcha instead of ink).

Enjoy your delicious course meal paired with tea, while listening to the tea master's explanations on the appeal of tea and how to enjoy it fully. After your meal you can enjoy a lesson in "matcha calligraphy®︎" by Ms. Shoran, a calligrapher who spreads tea to the world. Enjoy the process of the bright green color gradually changing to brown when exposed to air, the magic behind the "matcha calligraphy®︎" experience.
