Shincha Update > Shizuoka market sees 88800 yen / kg shincha sale

Several Japanese news outlets are reporting on start of the shincha season with one Shizuoka-based wholesale market seeing the sale of shincha at an average of 6553 yen / kg, and sales of 3627 kilograms of tea in Shizuoka on the auction day of April 15th. This is approximately 920.4 kg more than last year at this time, indicating a slight recovery from industry decline due bad publicity surrounding the Fukushima Nuclear Power Plant meltdown in 2011.
