Next July, the Prefecture will open a cafe near the Japanese Garden in Ohori Park that will offer Yame Tea and kimono rentals. The Japanese Garden is already a popular spot where visitors can experience tea ceremony and other aspects of Japanese culture, and it attracted 66,000 visitors last year. Visitor numbers have increased 1.8 times in the past five years, and nearly half are non-Japanese. With this move, the prefecture aims to further boost the attractiveness of the popular Japanese Garden as a tourist destination and enliven the park as a whole. Source: fiba.jp
