Chiran annual tea machines contest
On July 6th, 2017, Minami-Kyushu held its annual Green Tea Harvest Machine Competition in a tea field in Chiran-cho. 300 people attended the event, including the City’s top management, the family members and colleagues of producers.
11 teams, including 5 women operators, joined this year’s competition that commemorated the launch of the unified Chiran Brand and the 10th anniversary of unified Minami-Kyushu. Machine operators compete to show their driving techniques and skills for picking tea leaves. A drone shooting performed by Mizu Trans Corporation (Fukuoka city) attracted even more observers to the tea fields to cheer up the competitors.
