Aso Shrine in autumn

An acquaintance in Aso sent us this recent photo of ancient Aso Jinja, which is less than a mile from one of our main grower–artisan's tea fields, in the shadow of the majestic volcano that gives the region its name.



No mere historical relic, the shrine is a vibrant part of the local community.
