Chakabuki Tea Tasting Experience

January-December

Chakabuki is a kind of tea guessing game, in which participants try to remember the flavor of a tea they've drunk once, and determine which out of several teas was the same one they'd had before. This program is easy to understand, even for first-timers.

Soen Koyuan Yantan is a rennovated former tea-processing factory located in Yuyadani in the town of Ujitawara, the birthplace of Japanese tea. Now, it is a heartwarming place of community, presented with the hospitality of the local people. You can find tourist information, special products such as tea on sale, and tea-related experiential programs to discover the area's charm. In addition to the tea and sweets at the coffee shop, you can also enjoy lunch made using local products on weekends.
