Experience Details
Kagoshima is the second largest producer of Japanese green tea in Japan, following only Shizuoka Prefecture. And not only is Kagoshima known for sencha tea, but the prefecture is also a major producer of matcha green tea. Join this Tea Sommelier Class in Kagoshima City to learn about the differences between different types of tea and find out the best techniques for brewing sencha. During the Introductory Tea Sommelier Class, you will taste 5 different types of tea: 2 sencha teas, 1 fukamushicha (deep steamed tea), 1 hojicha (roasted tea), and 1 black tea. You will learn how to properly brew sencha tea. Then, there will be a little tea matching quiz, where guests will try to figure out what they are tasting. If you match them all, you'll get a tasting certificate! Birouen Tea was opened in 1883 in Kagoshima City and is still producing tea today. Learn from the experts at Birouen in Tenmonkan, a major shopping street in the heart of Kagoshima City.

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.
