Greetings

Our company was established in 1836 by the founder, Genzaburo Yano here in Uji Tawara. In 19th Century, Sotaro Yano, the 2nd generation tried to export Uji Tea to overseas when Japan started trading with U.S.A. Then, Yoshizo Yano, the 3rd generation expanded its business around Japan and he was awarded the several prizes in tea expositions. In 1949, the 4th Generation, Sotaro Yano established the Yanoen Corporation as a corporate organization. Since we started the wholesale business of processed tea, we have been pursuing the new possibilities of better tea by the introduction of new equipment and hygiene management while keeping tradition from a long time ago to deliver the customer satisfaction. The tea made from our experience and strict quality management is our proud and confident. As the result, we are awarded several prizes, including the prize of Minister of Agriculture, Forestry, and Fisheries and the prize of Minister of International Trade and Industry. “Make it a principle to be austere, refrain from lavish, splendid word and vanity, and imitation of somebody.” As above our company’s precepts, we would like to go forward step by step consistently without arrogance for customers and society.
