Kujiro Koyama began cultivating tea here in the Genroku era (1688-1704). After four generations, the family expanded into sales, and after eight generations they expanded their market to reach across Japan. Even now, continuing 300 years after its establishment, they continue to make tea with a focus on flavor and safety, with "quality-oriented tea production" as their guiding principle. Everything from cultivation to production is done in-house, and in order to continually improve the quality of their teas, they also frequently enter their products into tea competitions. As a result, they have made the prestigious achievement of receiving the Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries' Award.
