Cruise along on a gondola-like "donko" boat down the Yanagawa Canal as seasonal flowers, traditional warehouses and the red brick warehouses of the early 20th century pass by. Yame is one of Japan's most famous high-quality tea production regions. This tour visits the Yame Central Tea Garden, a veritable green carpet of roughly 62 hectares. At Yabeya Konomi Honke, the oldest tea wholesaler in Kyushu, participants can enjoy tasting and making the traditional "Hoiro Baisen" Yame tea by drying tea leaves on Japanese paper spread over charcoal fire. Take a look around the preserved tatami floor space and learn about Yame tea at the archive museum.
