Okakae Chaen KANEBUN

Yoshiwara in Shimizu, where Kanebun tea farm is situated, offers superb views of Mt. Fuji and a sea of clouds and is particularly well known among photographers. There are more than a few tourists from overseas who visit the area early in the morning to see Mt. Fuji at sunrise, have a cup of tea in the tea room and stop by the house to learn about local life. Enjoy the taste of tea unique to this mountainous area while listening to what the owner believes is important in tea farming in their tea room.

Experience programs

Stroll around the tea farm enjoying the astonishing view of Mt.Fuji and a sea of clouds, and enjoy the hand-picked tea.

Shizuoka is famous for Mt. Fuji and Green tea. It is also possible to get an unrivalled view of “Sea of Clouds” which can only be seen from a tea farm here in Shizuoka City. The natural environment unique to the rugged mountainous area enables the growth of delicate tea leaves, and those tea leaves processed by skilled craftsman offers absolute perfection in its mild tasting tea.
KANEBUN Tea room offers not only tea tasting itself, but offers unique ”savouring” experiences of foods cooked using tea as its ingredient,
which is sure to transform your conception of “tea”!
