Why Ashikubo area?

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.
