CoolFukuoka

Bringing you fantastic Fukuoka through the eyes of foreigners living in the Prefecture and the fun places they want their family and friends from throughout the world to come and visit.

Yame Area

Celebrities from around the world are discovering Japanese green tea, and this time we visited Yame, a Japanese tea producing district. Yame is renowned for producing high quality Japanese tea. In addition, the traditional white walled houses of the town make it a place where you can experience the beauty of traditional Japanese lifestyle.

Konomien – Japanese Tea Shop

Half of the shopfront is hidden by a large black wall. This was erected to carefully evaluate the color and shape of the tea leaves by shading the tea from direct sunlight, creating even lighting, a sign of the efforts the tea vendors put into preserving quality Japanese tea.The clever way that the Japanese use the power of nature is quite impressive.

Yame Chuo Tea Plantation Lookout

This spectacular view of the beautiful garden-like tea fields is typical Asian scenery. The statue of Eisai, known as the “Father of Tea” in Japan is a great place to take a selfie with the statue and the rolling fields.

Kitaya

The symbol of a European town is the spire of a church, but in Yame Fukushima, which prospered as a castle town, the symbol is the sake brewery chimney. The chimney belongs to the brewery Kitaya which boasts a 200 year history, and the sake brewed herewas awarded as "Champion Sake", the first prize in the sake category of a world-renowned competition held in London in 2013. Share the excitement of Yame’s sake which has beenrecognized internationally.

This shop has traditional Japanese everyday goods and craft items on sale from all regions of Kyushu. One of the really cool items is the “monpe” trousers which are traditionally worn by women working in the fields. The monpe are made with Kurume Kasuri woven fabric and are soft on the skin and easy-wearing.
