T-1 Gran Prix
The plaza on the east side of the main Chuo Train station hosted the T-1 Gran Prix on the 23rd. One half consisted of a competition for who had the best Japanese green tea. Apparently, the teas were all from Kagoshima. The judging kind of looked like a Texan chili cook-off.

The other half had tables selling tea.
People here like their tea in a traditional setting.
