Uji and Green Tea
Tea, introduced into Japan by the Chinese priest Eisai at the end of the 12th century, became closely associated with Japanese life, thus forming a unique culture. It was first planted in Uji at the beginning of the 13th century. Afterwards, Uji began to develop as Japan’s representative tea-producting district under the patronage of the shogunate and men of influence. Today, Uji green tea represents both Uji’s culture and industry. The municipal tea house, Taihoan consists of a main tea-ceremony room, another tea-ceremony room using tables and chairs plus a tea ceremony hall which is a wooden house built tastefully in Japan’s traditional “Sukiya-Zukuri” style.
