The Chanokuni (tea country) of Yame and Okuyame has been nurtured by the extensive Yabegawa water system. Its abundant blessings are reflected in the seasonal lives of the people,
traditional industries, history, culture, agriculture and forestry. Various interactive programs are hosted in the spring and autumn here in the beautiful mountains and in the
traditional, white-walled townscape that has prevailed through the ages. Such programs are like bundles of emotion, rather like the profound flavor of the renowned Gyokuro green tea of this region.
