About Saga, Japan

Saga (佐賀県) is a prefecture in Japan, located on the northwest of Kyūshū, the southernmost of Japan's four largest islands. Saga is bordered to the east by Fukuoko prefecture, another important tea producing region. In the West, teas from Saga are slightly less widely-available than those from Fukuoka.

Like most of Kyūshū, the climate is mild, a humid subtropical climate with high overall rainfall, and a seasonal pattern with most rain falling in summer, a climate ideal for growing tea.

Besides tea, Saga is known for producing ceramics and porcelain. The region has more arabale land than most parts of Japan, and is important in producing sticky rice, mandarin oranges, and forestry products.
