Tea Picking

Tea fields spread across the slopes at an altitude of 750m. The tea picking event is held in May and June every year.

We pick tea by hand in a pesticide-free field and enjoy lunch made with local ingredients. In the afternoon, you can make tea by hand-kneading the tea you picked yourself. Then, we will have a tea party in Tochimoto, where the view spreads across the natural mountain scenery.
