Tea Farm Experience

Departing Mt. Fuji we headed to the Shizoka prefecture, heart of the Japan green tea growing and processing industry. While most attention is focused on Japan’s automotive and electronic industries, the production of tea is a major component of its agricultural sector.
Courtesy of Sachiko Narasawa, we toured her family’s tea farm accompanied by Takayuki Suzuki, owner of the farm, and Uemura Satoshi, manager of the processing facility. It was a facsenating learning experience, ending with a visit to a tea room at the Kakegawa Castle.
