Our tea field “Ohbukudani”

Ujitawara Town is the chief production district of Uji tea. It is said that, in the Kamakura Period, the tea cultivation method was devised by a disciple Myo-e, who was famous for having reconstructed Kozan-ji Temple in Kyoto. Tea plants were first located at the interior of our tea field Ohbukudani, a valley around the sacred Mt.Jubu. According to the narratives, Ohbukudani’s tea was very popular and was presented to the Shogun who was originally a temporary title given by the emperor to the commander-in-chief of an expeditionary army and also the Imperial House, thanks to the suitable tea growing conditions of the area (Sunlight is properly shaded by surrounding small mountains and the grain of stone is good for tea cultivation)
