OHKURAEN participated FOOD TAIPEI 2011 held at Taipei, Taiwan from 6/22 to 6/25 as a member of JETRO. Through 4 days of exhibition visitors were total 50,460 people; 45,310 from inside Taiwan and 5,150 from outside Taiwan. We would like to thank visitors to OHKURAEN's booth..
First we hesitated to participate in Exhibition because demand of Japanese agricaltural products from overseas customers has been decreased because of radioactive influence due to Fukushima Daiichi Atomic plant accident. Because of influence of rumor, we had misgivings that visitors might have ignore us. However we knew our anxiety was groundless. Large crowd of visitors came to Japan Pavilion every day. Of course to our booth, many visitors came and we made over 1,000 cups of green tea per day for them.
We are relieved to know that Japanese products are stil popular and thriving. OHKURAEN has been preparing to ship our products to Taiwan. From August, Kakegawa deep steamed green tea will be sold in Taiwan. We heartily thank Taiwanese who love Japanese products.
Thank you Taiwanese all!
We can do it, Japan!

Growing new green tea buds (2011/4/20)
Because of low temperature in March and coldness of mornings and evenings in April, growth of new green tea buds is a week or so behind. There is no damage due to frost currently. If temperature is increasing day by day without problem, tasty new green tea will be expected as usual. However, it is not clear if we can pick up new buds before Golden Week (5/2).
If small new buds are picked unnaturally hastily, tasty green tea products can not be made. We will wait for the growth of new green tea buds carefully.
Please wait for a while for deep steamed new green tea in KAKEGAWA.
We will be pleased to announce as soon as the products are prepared.
