An annual Wakocha summit is going to be held in Kanazawa city, Ishikawa prefecture at the beginning of November. This summit started in 2002 in order to improve the quality and promote Wakocha. It will be the 13th event this year.
I hate to say this, but it was hard to find good quality of Wakocha before, but not now. Thanks to tea-farmers and tea-related people’s passions and efforts, good-quality teas are seen more, which is great.
Kanazawa is a historical and beautiful city with a lot to see and eat. Other than this event, it is worth visiting and I am sure you will love it. If you happen to be in Japan, why don’t you come and enjoy Wakocha and the city?
Date: November 1st (Sat) / 2nd (Sun)
Place: Around the Kanazawa castle, Kenrokuen garden etc
*More information will probably be posted at a later date once ready.
