Shizuoka Cha-no-Machi Concierge

Tea traders gathered here in Shizuoka in the time of Tokugawa Ieyasu and many of them still conduct business around Chamachi street. This is where experienced “tea meisters” concentrate. Tea from across Japan gathers at the tea auction market and is processed in a variety of ways to be distributed all over the world. The Cha-no-Machi Concierges formulated by the nine tea traders, guide you around Cha-no-Machi and convey the tea culture.
