Chanosato Village (countryside with tea plantations)

Chanosato Village

Shizuoka Prefecture is known as Japan’s biggest tea producer. For tea lovers a trip to Chanosato Village in the mountainous retreat of Kakegawa City is a necessity.

Chanosato Village is based at the foot of Mt. Awagatake in Kakegawa City, Shizuoka Prefecture, and operates under the three symbioses of “regional symbiosis”, “next-generation symbiosis”, and “environmental symbiosis”. Visitors can enjoy the experience of picking tea and walking in the tea fields while interacting with local people. Experience the warm and nostalgic lifestyle of the past at the farmer’s inn, which has been converted from an old tea farmhouse.

It’s a beautiful and intriguing setting and a spot where you won’t forget the scenery, unique encounters and historical charm of this area of Shizuoka Prefecture.
