Japan's Oldest Tea Estate At The Old Temple In Takao, Kyoto

Japan's oldest tea estate at Kosan-ji Temple, a World Cultural Heritage. They say here is the first place for tea growing, and I was surprised that the Japanese tea had begun from Takao! Some events after the historical facts, such as picking tea leaves and offering tea ceremony, are held even now.
