The tea fields of Ishitera, Shirasu, Erihara, and Kamatsuka
|Address||Wazuka-cho, Soraku-gun, Kyoto|
The tea fields of Ishitera and Erihara are located on both banks of the Wazuka River. They are hidden from the main road running along the valley floor, but as you travel upward through the community, the incredible and unimaginable landscape of tea plantations on rolling hills unfolds before your eyes. In Kamatsuka, you can see the unique landscape of tea fields spreading out right up to the summit of the steep mountain slope behind the community. Many tea growers have gathered at the foot of the mountain to form a community dotted with tea production factories.
