Savor the Flavors of Nature in Southern Kyushu

In the heart of Kagoshima, a mere hour and a half flight from Tokyo, lies a heaven of natural beauty and abundant treasures – the agricultural powerhouse known as “Kagoshima, the Land of Agriculture.”

Nestled in this paradise of Kagoshima is Zenzai Maruya Gardens, a teahouse run by a former organic farmer. Recently, they’ve started introducing a vegan menu using plenty local flavors of Kagoshima.
