"Agritourism (green-tourism in Japanese)” is paid attention more these days. Some tea producing areas have already introduced the tourism.

Now, Ureshino city, another famous tea producing area, is planning to adopt the real-experience tour. Travelers will be able to visit tea farms, pick tea leaves and process handmade black tea known as wakocha. Ureshino is also well-known hot springs town. So, tea and hot spring will free you from stress and bring you soothing time there.

People learn more about tea and enjoy their experience. The tea-grown districts can take advantage of their rich natural resources and promote more tea, coming to live. This win-win tourism will be more and more in demand.
