Tarōgorō Hisaie Tea Farm stays true to the original cultivation methods brought to the region by Shūzui. Daikou Tea Farm doesn’t use harsh chemicals to keep pests from harming their crops. Miyazo Tea Farm utilises the topography of Kasahara to grow its bushes. Although these three tea farms are local, they each have their own special flavor due to the type of tea plant they harvest and process.
Three of our region tea producers sell their products at our memorial hall.

from home.If you would like to have one of Yokoroumon’s meals, please consult with us at least 10 days in advance. (During tea picking season and Obon, we may not be able to serve you.)
Taishin Nishioka began working as a furniture craftsman in 1983 after studying woodwork diligently in three parts of Japan. His first big project was building a home. An old thatched roof house he remodeled has been used as an exhibition hall for his art since 1988. Some of his works can be purchased there. It is also possible to have work commissioned from Nishioka.
This group has been working to protect the surrounding environment since 1994 using eco-friendly rice and keeping the forests healthy.
