Yame Central Grand Tea Garden (pilot grand tea garden)


The tea fields, which look like a carpet of green, are a great photo spot.

The green tea fields blanket entire hills. The Daichaen (70ha) covers undulating hillsides and is the main origin of Fukuoka’s leading tea brand, Yame-cha. The tea field was developed between 1969 and 1973 from forested hill area of 103ha as a “prefectural pilot project.” The grandeur of this landscape has come to be well-known nationally.
Seen from the lookout at the summit of the hill, the tea field resembles a sumptuous green carpet. The best season is during the picking period from April to mid-May, when the view of fields of tea extending in every direction is simply breath-taking. This is also the perfect photography spot on a clear day for views of the Ariake Sea and the Shimabara Pensinsula. In the new tea season (around Golden Week at the start of May), there are new tea tastings and sales, so you can also take in the aroma and taste of fresh tea while you enjoy the views.
*For details of new tea tastings, please enquire to the Yame Central Tea Cooperative.
