We will deliver sweet potato & matcha information that you can not miss when you come to Little Edo!

It was during the Edo period that sweet potatoes were cultivated actively.The sweet potatoes produced in the Kawagoe domain in the land of Musashino and the area adjacent to it were called "Kawagoe potatoes".At the time when there were few sweet potatoes, the sweet potatoes produced in this area were considered to be high-class products, and since many sweet potatoes were shipped from Kawagoe to Edo by boat, the image of Kawagoe = sweet potatoes was firmly established.

Since the Nanbokucho period, "Musashi Kawagoe" has been one of the tea-producing regions that has made a name for itself as a teahouse in the world. Over XNUMX years, "Kawagoe Matcha" has been attracting attention as a new brand due to the development of local companies.The western part of Saitama Prefecture, including the Kawagoe area, is located in the northern limit as a large-scale tea production area in Japan, and you can enjoy tea with a condensed taste to survive the cold winter.

Intermediate Court

Naka-in is a temple that represents Kawagoe and is also known as the birthplace of Kawagoe tea and Sayama tea.It was opened in the 7th year of the Tencho period (830) by Kazuhisa Ennin, a priest of Jikaku Daishi.
At that time, tea was cultivated in Kawagoe and Sayama, starting with the planting of tea fruits brought from Kyoto in the precincts.A stone monument called "Sayama Tea Origin Monument" is also built in the precincts.
