Farmer

Ashikubo Yamabikokai

Shizuoka tea originated in Ashikubo, which is known as a production site of premium sencha. The fresh green scenery of tea farms on the mountain slopes along the Ashikubo River is well worth a visit. The association members are tea farmers in the Kuchinagashima community. Mr. Takeda and other members calmly and carefully explain about green tea including its production methods and taste. When they have many visitors, local women may join them to host them.
