You will discover the delicate taste of green tea influenced by the difference between water temperatures.

Uji is one place of producing the best quality green tea leaves all over Japan.
Uji characterizes both its way to grow green tea leaves specific to Uji and to process them.

The seeds of tea were first brought from China in 1191 by a Zen Buddhist monk and the tea cultivation has gradually extended to some places with rather warm climate and any pure rivers.

Takumi no yakata is located there on the east side bank of the Uji River.
It’s 8 minutes’ walk from Uji Station, Keihan Railway.
People usually visit HOOHDO of BYODOIN Temple, a world cultural heritage site, across the river before or after taking a break at the café.

Although we can enjoy drinking tea there, an appointment in groups beforehand will experience how to make green tea tastefully.
The tea experts show it to us politely at 1,500 JPY per person.
The hands-on experience is held twice a day except Wednesday .
In addition, we can experience the tea ceremony for about 50 minutes three times a day except for Wednesday at 1,000 JPY, including a Japanese sweet.

The other menus at the café are as follows:
powdered green tea 500 JPY
refined green tea 500 JPY
high quality green tea 500 JPY
Set menus of each come with whatever sweet we choose among 4 sweets 650 JPY

Some staffs speak English but they don’t have a menu in English.
Since this is a café, we don’t need to stand in lines for a long time even during lunch time.
