About the farmer

Farmer Yoshiaki Nakanishi grows tea trees organically in a small field on the plains above the legendary city of Uji in Kyoto Prefecture. In combat, pests rely only on their natural enemies and their own eyesight. He regularly goes through the field and manually collects beetles that eat tea leaves. He takes care of the tea trees himself and also processes them himself. Instead of chemical fertilizers, it uses straw, fish processing residues, and rapeseed sludge. The two-layer shading of tea trees before harvest (Kabusé) continuously adjusts to the position of the sun to achieve an ideal balanced shading. Small insects are sprayed with coconut oil, the area around the garden is planted with Indian sesame, which repels small pests. Faithful inhabitants of the garden are also frogs, which have a wide range of small insects on their diet.
