Green Tea Tourism began thanks to local tea farmers in 2014 with the goal of welcoming visitors from across Japan and abroad to learn about the flavors, health benefits, and qualities of Japanese green tea. In this way, the farmers could share their products with a greater audience around the world. We want to invite visitors into our picturesque tea fields and share with them the best ways to prepare and enjoy green tea, the relationship between the tea farmers and the tea they grow, the history of tea in Higashi Sonogi, and how our tea is produced.

A convenient half-day’s trip from Fukuoka City, the island is one of the more accessible cat islands out there—yes, there are several—reached via a quick 20-minute ferry ride from Shingu Port. From April 1 to September 30, the island’s tourist season, the ferry runs six times a day. The ferry itself is fairly large and new, with ample deck space to enjoy the jaunt over to Ainoshima. The land area of the island is 1.25 square kilometers. One walk around the whole island would be equivalent to 6 kilometers. The current population is around 500 people and more than 100 cats.
Because of the large number of cats, it was called “cat island.” Learn more
