Aichi(愛知) is a prefecture in Japan, located on the southern coast of Honshu, the largest island, and is part of the broader Tōkai region. Aichi is bordered by Shizuoka to the east, Gifu to the north, and Mie to the west. All of these prefectures are important tea growing regions.

Although producing a smaller total volume of tea, and less well-known than Mie and Shizuoka, Aichi is still one of the key tea producing regions.

Aichi is home to Nagoya, Japan's fourth largest city; much of the prefecture is heavily developed, both with urban and suburban areas and industrial areas.

The Nishio region of Aichi is important in producing matcha.
