Horiishichimeien

Uji tea, a brand that truly represents Japan. In the Muromachi era (1336-1573), Horiishichimeien was one of seven tea farms recognized by Ashikaga Shogun, and has been handed down for generations.
The tea leaves are harvested from the over-600-year-old tea farm, by traditional hand-picking method and ground with a stone mill producing the highest quality tea in Japan. You can only taste and experience the true, authentic Matcha here.

Byodoin

This UNESCO World Heritage Site and beautiful Buddhist temple was originally built as a villa for the high-ranking courtier Minamoto no Shigenobu, a minister during the late Heian period (794-1185), and the villa was turned into a Buddhist temple in 1052. The main Phoenix Hall can also be found in the Japanese ¥10 coin.
