The Japanese tea specialty store " GEN GEN AN Phantom " in Tokyo, which is handled by the tea leaf brand EN TEA, will open on Saturday, October 9, 2021 in Hasami Town, Nagasaki Prefecture. It will be open for a limited time.
Currently, Korona-ka is giving a big blow to restaurants. GEN GEN AN The illusion was also in a very difficult situation. Meanwhile, the existence of people who actually come to the store and order through the online shop has helped us more than ever. Also, taking this opportunity, I was able to learn about the growing interest in Japanese tea from customers outside the prefecture.
GEN GEN AN This edge nurtured in the whirlpool is an irreplaceable and important asset in advancing the "#Human Greening Plan" which is the guideline of the illusion. From the desire to get in touch with the various things and things that grow from such fresh greenery, I decided to leave Tokyo and start a new attempt in Kyushu, which is also the phantom hometown of GEN GEN AN. We would like to work with our local colleagues and deepen our ties with you through things that can only be done locally.

A renovated space of a Japanese house built by traditional traditional construction methods. While old folk houses are being demolished all over Japan due to aging, Maruhiro has reconstructed a space that maximizes its charm and potential. By boldly changing the impression of the existing skeleton as it is, new "function" and "value" are created in the 86-year-old building. (Design / DDAA / DDDA LAB )
