Wazuka Town, Kyoto

Posted by
Stu (From Scotland | Working in Kyoto, Japan) on 28 July 2014 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

Wazuka is mostly a farming town and prides itself in its top quality green tea actually said by many connoisseurs of tea to be no. 1 in all of Japan. Wazuka is home to roughly 300 tea growing families. The area was selected in the Kamakura period (1192 – 1333) for tea production and has enjoyed an 800-year history as one of the main production areas of Ujicha.
Also a considerable crop of rice is produced among other agricultural products.
