Mr. and Ms. Moriuchi warmly welcome you to their 150-year-old traditional house.They produce a wide range of tea from green tea to fermented and black tea. As experienced tea instructors, they accommodate various requests that include tea farm tours and hand-kneading of tea leaves. They have over 200 visitors a year.
