In Owari Asahi, there are 18 “delicious tea shops” stores which are approved by the Japan Tea Association as of June 2016, it is the number one in Japan. The festival is hosted, planned, and managed by the Owariasahi Tourism Association.
Miyazakien will open the shop in the tea bazaar area. In the bazaar, you can buy domestic and world black tea at the same time, and you can taste most of the tea. Although it is said that the tasting paper cup is sold at the entrance of the venue (three pieces / 10 yen planned), you can have your own cup. Also, there are not only black tea, but also Japanese tea, Chinese tea and sweets and tea goods.
[Notice] We will open a temporal shop in tea festival held on 18th Sepbember at Dai Nagoya Building
On the coming 18th September (holiday), Miyazakien will open a temporal shop in a tea festival held in HDC Nagoya in the Dai Nagoya building in the Nagoya city Nagoya station area. The festa is held from the 16th to the 18th on the 10th-11th floor in the Dai Nagoya building, and there are tea seminars, sweets making, drinking comparison section etc. Admission, tasting in a drinking comparison section, etc. are free (some reservations priority).
The weather forecast predicted a rain probability of 60%, but yesterday which I was planning for a full moon tea ceremony on, although the clouds were spreading, it had been a night somehow we could see the full moon.
The picture here is the appearance of the moon watching from the full moon tea ceremony stage in the tea field in front of the shop of the Miyazakien. Due to the setting of the performance and shooting conditions of old camera we used, but indeed, there is brightness like daytime.
The tea ceremony has been postponed, but since it is a big opportunity, we have confirmed various things such as the brightness of the full moon and the condition of the lighting. Without lighting, evening fields are so dark. There are soils, stones, tea trees, etc. Truly, it seems a little unsafe if someone walk around the field without any light. And also there were some mosquitos (we hope they will be few in October …), it may be cool or even cold at night in October, so long-sleeved shirts and pants looks good. Heels are dangerous, so we’d like to ask for easy walking shoes.
The picture on the right is from the front of our store. After checking the moon out at the stage of the field, turning on the lights and going into the field, moving around the field, walking down the field and coming in front of the shop was just the moon out. After all, after watching the appearance of the moon on the stage of the tea plantation, it goes down and has passed for more than 30 minutes before checking out the moon in front of the shop. The mountain is getting closer to that extent, which means that there is a difference in the height of the field. It is unique to the tea plantation in the middle mountain area.
Either way, we will show you when the due date approaches. Everyone, please look forward to the ceremony.
Unfortunately, we are forecasting unseasonable weather on 6th September, so we will postpone holding the full moon tea ceremony on 6th October. We are informing it to those who applied for participation.
Today, we had a meeting of the full moon tea ceremony held on 6th September.

Mr. Iida sells his MIU tomatoes and MIU tomato juice at the famous department store and his own direct sales place. In this month, you may see him from August 23 to August 29 at the Weekly Spot of JR Nagoya Takashimaya Basement 2F.
I heard that in Taiwan drinks combining beer and tomato are popular, but what kind of merchandise is the combination of tea and tomato and beer? I am curious. I am looking forward to next week’s big Nagoya building!
Hot and humid days continue, such as cloudy weather and showers although the rainy season has opened in Japan. How is the weather at your place?
At the Miyazakien, care of the tea plantation is proceeding at this time. Today we are having a freshly made Japanese black tea using this year ‘s tea leaves on the freshly made tea field terrace while we are taking a rest.
Pouring black tea into the glass against the backdrop of lush tea leaves in summer seems to very cool.
At the Miyazakien, you can purchase soft creams using our Matcha, Wa Kocha, the Japanese black tea at this hot season.
Let’s have a gorgeous time on our full moon stage in the tea field with wild appearance!
