We are proud of our gyokuro which is made using only the Goko variety. You can enjoy its willow-like aroma, sharp taste and full-bodied flavor, while experiencing its gentle and refreshing aftertaste. The name Asagiri was chosen in analogy with the foggy Shirakawa region. There is also a famous old saying about fog: "Morning fog is fine". It is a rule of thumb that if there is fog in the morning, it will clear up in the afternoon.
We hope that you will enjoy the morning mist of the Shirakawa as you enjoy a soothing and refreshing smoke. As the Goko cultivar is grown mainly in Kyoto Prefecture, we recommend that you compare it with the Goko cultivar from different production areas in Kyoto Prefecture.
