Re: Wonderful Gift from My Old Friend; New Tea Leaves (旧友からの素晴らしい贈り物:新茶)

[In English]
One of my old friends in my college days kindly sent me the nicest gift today. He lives in Shimada city in Shizuoka (静岡県島田市), which is renowned for the place of production of high quality Japanese tea. And now (early of May) is the best picking season,….the 88th day of spring.


The friend was born and grown at an old-established families, and his ancestor of a several generations earlier allegedly contributed a lot for the advancement of tea industry in the area.


PS: He is also known as a researcher about “Warriors’ Kabuto-Buddha Faith” (兜仏信仰) in the provincial era (戦国時代); the small Buddhas hidden in helmets.
