    Saga Ureshino-shi Ureshinomachi Fudoyama Otsu 2491-1
    One of the symbols of Ureshino City, this enormous tea tree is 4.6 meters tall and has a crown of about 80 square meters. Yoshimura Shinbei is said to be the originator of Ureshino tea; he encouraged the cultivation of tea throughout the Sarayadani Valley of Mt. Fudo in the 1600s. Said to be 350 years old, this is the only tea tree left from that period. There are still tea fields there that stretch as far as the eye can see.

Away from the fast-paced cities of mainland Japan, Kyushu's Saga prefecture offers quaint towns and cities known for their traditional crafts, particularly ceramics. Rich in kaolin (a type of clay), Saga became the homeland of Arita ware, a delicate, decorative porcelain that is now celebrated worldwide and can be discovered in the towns of Arita, Imari, and Karatsu.
