I was born and raised in Shizuoka prefecture where is very famous for good green tea in Japan.
My parents and younger brother grow green tea in my hometown.
They are going to start picking buds of green tea this coming weekend.
So I 'm going there to help them.
Most of family made livings to grow green tea there when I was a child.
And schools in the town used to give children some day offs to pick green tea for their family.
We called the day offs "Ochya Yasumi," but I didn't like to work on the field.

Since I live far from my hometown now, I can see my parents only once or twice a year.
I would like to do something useful for my old parents, so I come back to my hometown in this season every year.
I'm looking forward to seeing my parents, brother's family, and beautiful green tea.
