Enkei Chabatake a unique tea field in Japan.
Enkei Chabatake tea field. In Harayama, Wazuka (Japan) there is a tea field that grows in a small space, at the edge of a wood, on a steep slope, and its unique circular shape is amazing: the perfectly trimmed rows of hedges wane along the curved survace, creating a mesmerizing effect.
The diagonal light of the afternoon produces a “chiaroscuro” pattern caused by the shadow of a row projected on the row below and on the space between them.
