Big tea tree

There is an exceptionally large tea tree compared to the surrounding tea fields. With a height of about 4m, circumference of about 33m, and an age of about 300 years old, the tree is said to be the oldest tea plant in the prefecture. Tea is picked using a permanently erected scaffolding, producing about 15 kg of harvest. The finished tea is processed into "longevity tea" for distribution to the old age homes within the city. An old nostalgic ropeway for farming use is still in operation.
