About Chanosato Village
Shizuoka Prefecture is Japan's largest tea producer with the highest tea production.
In the middle and mountainous area of Kakegawa City, which is located in the central and western part of the prefecture, there is a tea plantation based on the "World Agricultural Heritage Tea Plantation Farming Method" at the foot of Awagatake Mountain at an altitude of 532m.
This tea-producing area, one of the best in the prefecture, is regarded as a village, and the village is surrounded by tea fields, forests, headwaters and small hot springs.
We will aim for an area where you can enjoy the Shizuoka-style village forest (countryside) experience.
Chanosato Village is based at the foot of Mount Awagatake in Kakegawa City, Shizuoka Prefecture.
We work on the theme of three symbiosis.
- Regional symbiosis
- Experience production activities such as agriculture and forestry.
We learn various things from that.
- Next-generation symbiosis
- Inherit life and culture that have coexisted utilizing nature.
I tell the children of the future.
- Environmental symbiosis
- We learn the importance of forests and mountains and the role of satoyama, and provide time to experience, experience and enrich our hearts.
