First “Chiran Tea Marché”

16

Jan,2018

On Nov 23, Labor Thanksgiving Day of Japan, many green tea-related events were held at several green tea producing areas in Kagoshima Prefecture under the slogan “one cup of tea a day”. Here in Minami-kyushu City, too! This is the Japan’s biggest tea production city. The event was planned and organized by the Chiran Tea Association, comprised of several hundreds of tea producers in Minami-kyushu City.

This "Chiran Tea Marché" is held at a square of Chiran Samurai Residence streets as the first-time event that commemorates the unified “Chiran Tea Brand”. This is truly the first collaboration event involving both tourism industry and green tea industry of the city.

Not only green tea tasting and brewing lessons, but also many other activities were popular among participants, such as tea making process and bamboo lantern, miniature family alter, even Zen sitting meditation etc. 6 green tea shops and other sweets shops or local food booth were popular, too.

More than 1,000 people visited the Marché including tourists and local residents.
