What you can expect

When tea was first cultivated in Japan about 580 years ago, Ureshino quickly rose to be one of the biggest tea producing areas in Western Japan, even winning best tea titles multiple times. Ureshino exemplifies Japan’s finest tea. “Ureshino Tea Time” was started in the summer of 2016. “Ureshino Tea Tourism” is a program to connect Ureshino’s most historic cultural pieces, tea, hot-springs and porcelain. The ultimate part of this is the “Tea Space Experience”. In an open air tea room surrounded by picturesque scenery, you can experience a tea ceremony put on by a tea master. The tea ceremony itself is a performance of brewing a series of distinct locally grown teas. From careful measuring to adjusting water temperatures, see how different teas are brewed to their optimal conditions. Feel yourself transported to another world, as though by a stage performance, as the tea is steeped. This tea ceremony is a sacred one which can only be performed by tea makers.
 This program will be held at “the Chatou” built in April, 2019 at the Ikeda plantation, on a hill overlooking Omura Bay.
 Each of these experiences has their own taste and feel, so you can choose the one that best suits you.
 “One cup of tea” Just enjoy what makes you want to come to Ureshino in the first place.

The accurate activity place “the Chatou” is not shown on the map for privacy, but don't worry, You will move to the place by taxi(fare is included within the price).
