Kyoto Tea Country

Ishitera Tea Fields

These tea fields, known as the first scenic property designated by Kyoto Prefecture, are also registered as a Japanese heritage site. The tea fields spread out across the steep hillside, in a sight you might not expect to find looking up the side of a little mountain. This area, located in the west of the town of Wazuka, is known as Hayaba. The tea harvesting begins here in late April.
