Introduction

Harayama is a community with Mount Jubuzan (rising 682 meters above sea level) rising behind. It is said that during the Kamakura Period, this area became the first to cultivate tea in Wazuka thanks to monk Jishin, the second head monk of restored Kaijyusenji Temple, who brought the first tea seeds to this area. Cultivated land extends on rolling hills throughout the area, and tea factories can be seen in the community.
