Stretching from east to the west, Shizuoka is known for a production of green tea. Among many tea plantation areas, Ashikubo is historically unique as the origin of the tea seed had been brought by buddhist master Shoichi Kokushi during the Kamakura period and planted here, thus this is why Ashikubo is said to be the origin of the Shizuoka green tea. Foggy and the cold temperature in both mornings and night greatly contribute to growing good tea.
In this peaceful and mountainous place, quality green tea with significant aroma is grown.

Ashikubo Teaworks consists of a group of 40 local green tea farmers, and produces quality green tea, in order to keep this valuable knowledge of tea making as well as training young farmers.
The factory entrance is an open air space used as a cafe, people drop off to buy their favorite tea drinks ( for example, Sencha frozen, Sencha latte ) throughout the year.
