As this sandy soil is the most suitable for the cultivation of tencha, tea plantations extend along both banks of the Kizu River. The areas on either bank – the Yawata City (left) side and Joyo City (right) sides – of Nagare Bridge (currently, Kozuya Bridge), which is well known as a setting for samurai dramas, are both called “Kozuya,” which used to form a community called Kozuya Village and work together on tea cultivation. They are linked by Nagare Bridge still now, maintaining a close relationship with each other.
