【May 28 (Sat) The 40th Suruga Honzan Tea Pot Road Procession / Tea Stuffing Ceremony】 will be held!

This event is now closed

"Mountain of tea, incense, taste more deepens If you leave the store." It is said that.

It is said that "In the Edo period, Prince Ieyasu, the great lord who resided at Suruga Castle, packed tea in a tea pot in the spring (during the period of new tea), stored and aged it in a tea urn house set up in the cool Igawa Dainichi Pass at an altitude of more than 1,000 m during the summer, and carried it to Suruga in late autumn to enjoy the flavor and aroma with deep taste."

This time, which is the beginning of a series of events, in addition to performing the "Ceremony of Tea Stuffing" (a ceremony to put the new tea "Shizuoka Honzan Tea" in a tea pot and seal it), we will present new tea to all visitors!

This will be the first time in three years that the program will be held in front of the general public. Please stop by!
