    Have You Ever Been to Mie Prefecture?

    28 Apr 2021

    Have You Ever Been to Mie Prefecture?

    Abundant with nature, Mie Prefecture is a popular tourism destination and is a wonderful place to enjoy sightseeing and food through every season. It is home to the Ise Jingu, Japan’s holiest shrine, dedicated to the sun goddess Amaterasu. However, Ise Jingu is just one of a wide variety of activities Mie tourists can enjoy.

    Those who have been to Mie prefecture might might have visited places such as Iga Ueno Castle and the Iga-ryu Ninja Museum,  which is one of the only places in Japan where you can experience authentic ninja culture. You will also find a wide range of leisure attractions, such as Nagashima Spa Land, one of Japan's best amusement parks, the Suzuka Circuit, a racetrack that hosts the F1 Japan Grand Prix and 8-hour endurance races, and Toba Aquarium, which boasts more species than any other in Japan. While enjoying the local delicacies, such as Matsusaka beef , Ise-ebi (lobster), and buffet type restaurants of all-you-can-eat oysters, perhaps you have had a glass of refreshing umeshu from CHOYA.

    CHOYA is located in Mie and Osaka, where it first started as a wine-grape grower in 1914. Later in 1959 CHOYA began producing umeshu, a traditional Japanese ume fruit liqueur. Today CHOYA is the top umeshu producer in the world. Their mission is to produce and promote the finest umeshu made from natural ingredients.

    Fusion of Umeshu and Premium Green Tea 

    The Choya Ujicha Umeshu is umeshu that that combines the traditional Japanese beverage "tea" and the traditional liqueur "umeshu". The ingredients are carefully selected Uji tea leaves from Kyoto with a fresh aroma and umeshu with an elegant flavor.
    The packaging is a cylindrical bottle that resembles a bamboo tube, with a delicate gradation of green, the color of tea, to express the luxurious and calm impression of this Green Tea Umeshu. The refreshing aroma of Uji green tea, elegant sweetness, and crisp aftertaste will appeal to a wide range of people, regardless of gender, as an alcoholic beverage.

    Choya uses their original manufacturing method called Komireisen that brings out the original sweet and refreshing scent of Uji tea. When Uji tea is brewed in umeshu, it is slowly extracted at a low temperature to suppress the astringency that comes out when tea is brewed at high temperatures.

    Drink it chilled straight or on the rocks!
