Local Tea Experience
Ashikubo Tea Works
In the medieval Kamakura period, Syouicihi Kokushi, a distinguished priest born in Sunshu ( Olden Shizuoka’s Name ), went to Soh dynasty, China for studies. And Syouichi Kokushi spread over Shizuoka the tea seeds he had back from China, which is said to be the very beginning of Shizuoka Tea.
Of all Shizuoka Tea brands, Ashikubo Tea is a brand that can be traced back with its history as a tribute delivered to Edo Castle in The Edo Period (1603 – 1867).
The youth of Ashikubo Tea Works is in the efforts of telling more and more people how to enjoy tea while maintaining the traditional Ashikubo Green Tea and its history.
You can enjoy their 100%-Ashikubo-Made fragrant Macha, Houji-cha ( Roasted Green Tea ), and tea in Late or the frozen, having a breath-taking view of tea plantations all over your front.
As each season comes, their menu selection goes changing newly, and drinks of seasonal fruits can be served from time to time. Have yourself away from the city centre to visit them and fall into the true local Shizuoka Japan experiences!
