Indulge in Your Perfect Cup of Tea

 

Explore Ureshino City, the heartland for tea in Saga

 

Tea, hot springs, and pottery: these three features together have formed the heart of Ureshino City of Saga Prefecture since ancient times. Tea in particular has been cultivated there for over 500 years, and Ureshino offers a variety of exclusive tea tourism experiences, supported by the Ureshino Chadoki project.
Like the myriad white tea flowers that bloom in the tea gardens in the mountains surrounding Ureshino, several unique “tea spaces” are incorporated as part of the tea plantations themselves.
A visit to Tenchadai, or “Tea Observatory,” with a patio decorated with elegant parasols, will allow you to sip on your warming cup while overlooking the city and the majestic mountains.

Mori no Chashitsu, or “Forest Tea Room,” offers a 360-degree tea sanctuary surrounded by cypress and cedar trees.
Visit Chatou, or “Tea Tower,” to gaze out as far as the eye can see, straight to a superb view of Omura Bay in the distance, right from the comfort of the tea garden.
Born by renovating a section of the Soesen kiln factory, Yoshida Chashitsu, or “Yoshida Tea Room,” is a special tea space that doubles as a pottery gallery.
Choose your venue and enjoy a private tea ceremony, complete with traditional Japanese sweets. While you are in Ureshino, you can supplement your journey by walking or cycling between tea gardens and pottery workshops, staying at a unique lodging with a “tea butler,” tasting and comparing tea creations at a bar, or soaking in the local hot springs. Your body will thank you.
Access: From Shin-Osaka Station, take the shinkansen bullet train to Shin-Tosu Station, about 2 hours and 30 minutes. Take a train to Hizen Kashima Station, about 1 hour. Then by taxi, it is about 30 minutes.
