    静岡県がお茶どころであることは当然ですが、特にこの岡部町朝比奈地区は、京都の宇治、福岡の八女と並び玉露の三大産地ということなんだそうですね。 ここは道の駅。周囲の山には茶畑も見えています。私は茶の華亭でおかべ汁をいただきました。

Shizuoka Main Areas


With the giant Pacific Ocean to the south and the great Mount Fuji to the north, Shizuoka prefecture is blessed with some of the best views the country has to offer. The white sand beaches of the Izu Peninsula are a rare find on mainland Japan, neighbored by beautiful cliffs, tumbling hills, and natural hot springs. As Japan’s largest producer of green tea, the age-old tradition of tea drinking is ubiquitous in Shizuoka, from the miles of tea fields to the old tea houses hosting traditional tea ceremonies.
