Let's go to Shizuoka
Trip of Japanese Green Tea and Wasabi
#Organic heavens tea terrace
About 40 minutes car trip from Shizuoka Station, at 700m high tea field, you can enjoy the symphony by the collaboration of organic tea plantations and the mountain river below.
The day after rain, you shall see the fantastic tea plantation in the sea of clouds.
＃Walk around Utougi village
Utougi is the "birthplace of Wasabi cultivation" and has been recognized as a World Agricultural Heritage Site. From the ancient era, wasabi from Utougi was presented to Tokugawa Ieyasu(the founder and first shōgun of the Tokugawa shogunate of Japan), who praised its fragrance and pungency. The sound of the clear stream and the lush green wasabi fields are a unique sight in a land rich in nature.
We use local ingredients, and our popular dishes include handmade soba noodles and "Sabi-Meshi" - freshly grated wasabi served upon the hot rice.
The farmer also sells wasabi pickles and other processed wasabi products, as well as Miso and other local processed agricultural products.
Guide to the Marufuku Seicha Tea Roastery Factory
Marufuku Seicha Tea Roastery Factory located in the central of the city, where the tea leaves are sorted, roasted, preserved, and sold to our customers.
You can also try to roast Hojicha under the guidance of tea craftsmen and taste a variety of Japanese Tea.
The tea field and wasabi fields might be difficult to walk in. Please refrain from wearing heels or sandals. So please change into comfortable walking shoes.
The tea plantations and wasabi fields are in a rich natural environment and are constantly visited by animals, insects, and grass. Long sleeves and trousers are recommended.
The tea factory is where Japanese tea produced and packed. Due to the delicate nature of Japanese tea, it is not permitted to use perfumes or other strong scents.
