One of the oldest farmer’s cafés
with 30 years of history


While producing quality green tea on his tea farm, Sansuien, in Tochizawa, Mr. Uchino has served tea in a formal fashion at his house since the 1980s to create fans of Tochizawa tea. A cup of tea at this traditional farmer’s house or in their garden is something special. “I’ll do anything to help, any time” says Mr. Uchino. It is also fun to listen to him explain about traditional customs and local history.

Authentic tea drinking

Mr. Uchino holds a tea-savoring event in May and November each year. At the May event, Mr. Uchino personally brews the tea himself whereas, at the November event, visitors get to brew special tea, which was submitted to a tea fair, according to his instruction. Apart from these events, he is able to accommodate various requests, so why not give him a call?

Tea farm tour

Behind his house is his well-kept tea farm. After having tea, you can stroll around it while listening to his explanation. You may try picking tea or processing tea in the harvest season.

Currently, from the viewpoint of preventing the spread of new coronavirus infections, there are companies that are considering accepting customers. If you would like to experience it, please contact the "Szuocha Tour Desk".
