In this area, tea cultivation has been taking place since the mid-Edo period, in the 18 century. We do from the cultivation of tea to production and sale by ourselves. Our tea farm, Seikou-en, is in Kiyosawa, which means limpid stream, one of the most famous tea-production area in Shizuoka, Japan. The present tea master, Sugiyama Wataru, is the eighth generation. The main house was built at the end of the Edo period. We got the 1st prize at a National Tea Competition in Japan.
We are a small family farm, which is only 1.2 ha and a slope. In some area, even a small car cannot pass through! But thanks to the small and the slant place with fog along the Warashina river, at an altitude of 250-400m, we have a lot of advantages!
