Experience Details
Second only to Shizuoka Prefecture, Kagoshima is one of the largest producers of Japanese green tea in Japan. Although Kagoshima is most well-known for sencha tea, the prefecture is also a major producer of matcha green tea. Join this Kagoshima Tea Experience in Kagoshima City to learn about the ceremonial preparation and enjoyment of matcha tea. The Tea Ceremony Class takes place at Birouen Tea, established in 1883 in Kagoshima City, where you’ll have the chance to learn from an expert. Nearby is Tenmonkan, a popular shopping street in center city. During the Introductory Tea Ceremony Class, the tea master will teach you about the traditional Japanese tea ceremony. Tea in Japan dates back to the 9th century, with the ritual of tea preparation becoming popular in the 13th century. Over time, the customs of tea preparation evolved into the tea ceremony as we know it today. Learn about the methods of matcha tea preparation during this Tea Ceremony Class in Kagoshima City and learn how to use the tools of Japanese tea ceremony yourself! The tea master can also answer any questions you have as you sit in the seiza position and let the taste and aroma of matcha wash over you.

Experience Location

Located on the bay, the port city of Kagoshima is the capital of Kyushu’s Kagoshima Prefecture. Formerly a castle town, Kagoshima City was the entrypoint of Western civilization to Japan in the 1600s, facilitating modernization and leading Japan’s Industrial Revolution in the 1800s. Kagoshima City also boasts abundant beauty, both natural and manmade. At Senganen Garden, the villa of the Shimadzu Clan that formerly ruled the area, visitors can get a glimpse of the majestic Mt. Sakurajima, a volcanic land mass that juts out of the sapphire waters of Kinko Bay.
