About us

We are located in Shimada-City, Shizuoka which is one of the most famous tea producing areas in Japan. This area is blessed with the climate and water which are very suitable for tea cultivation. We founded our tea business in 1887, and have been engaged in it until the present day for more than 120 years. In the Japanese tea business, it is rare that one company covers all the components of tea making from cultivating to packing, but we manage all the processes to keep the high quality that we aim for. Our manufacturing capacity is very large, handling 2,700,000kg of raw material tea leaves which turns into 600,000kg of manufactured tea per year. 1% of the total tea product(Sencha) in Japan is manufactured at our factory.

Our factory is ISO14001 certified.

Quality

We retail a very small portion of our total product by ourselves, and more than 98% of the products are sold to professional tea buyers. Recently, green tea supply outstrips demand in Japan, which leads most of the tea wholesalers to carry excess stock. We however sell all the products by orders from the buyers on the same day as the tea has been manufactured.

For cultivation, we have a contract with a professional soil analysis company and they analyze the soil of the tea field with measures which are as accurate as medical apparatus, thus ensuring ideal soil to raise the tea trees.

For manufacture, we consider the role of each machine precisely, and revise the facilities every year so that we could achieve the target quality. We study about our machinery enthusiastically, and we have two patents of tea manufacturing facility although we are not a machinery maker.
