“Green Tea Tourism” is a new category in tourism where visitors enjoy viewing a green tea plantation spreading as far as the eye can see and learn about the world of Japanese green tea as a sightseeing experience. Through the experience of contact with local people, their lives, and green tea production scenes, visitors can feel the warm hospitality and the pleasant simplicity of rustic life.
Minamikyushu City, located at the southern tip of Satsuma Peninsula, is rich in rural landscapes and has a huge green tea plantation on a hilly area where visitors can view Mt. Kaimondake. At “Hatanosato Midorikan” visitors can not only learn about the history of green tea but can also experience the process of hand rolling of green tea to make their own original tea. Many tourists from overseas visit here because they can have an opportunity to learn how to make and enjoy an excellent cup of green tea by using high quality sencha leaves and also taste Japanese sweets.
There is also a café in the facility where you can enjoy authentic Japanese tea and a sweets set.
Hand rolling experience: 500 yen per person, requiring 30 minutes.
Business hours: 9:00 - 17:00
