Outdoor Tea Ceremony (Sarukura Spring)

Southern Nagano Area 野点体験(猿庫の泉)


Sarakura Spring comes from Mt. Kazakoshi on the southern edge of the Central Alps. Its mineral water has been chosen as one of the Top 100 in Japan and is highly valued for use in tea ceremonies. Thanks to the efforts of a group of tea ceremony aficianados, you can enjoy a ‘Nodate’ style outdoor service using water from Sarakura Spring. The mineral water can be taken home if you bring your own container.
