Production Area- From myth to modern times -

Miyazaki & Mie prefectures

Our Japanese tea export production area connected from the mythical world
- Gift of *Amaterasu Omikami’s connection –
*A god that appears as the main god in Japanese mythology.
Believing in the unique inspiration I felt at AmanoIwato where she, Amaterasu Omikami, hid.

Mîtécha’s origin place = Mie and the result of seeking a new frontier = Miyazaki
The word "Mi"=”み” is connected like a mythology history.
