Tea in Japan appeared in the 8th century thanks to Japanese monks who learned drinking tea during meditation at Zen Buddhist temples in China. However, tea cultivation in Japan started in 12th century, when first tea seeds were planted in Hirado island, Kyusu, Togano and Uji, which later became Japan's first major tea-producing region. Since that time tea culture developed into unique phenomenon with its original tea ceremony Sadō, which synthesized all known forms of culture like: garden art, architecture, painting and calligraphy, a special style of arranging flowers and ceramics, the skill of exquisite table setting and philosophical conversations like poetry, music etc. Japanese tea ceremony became a physical manifestation of Buddhism principles and developed together becoming one of the foundation in a culture of a county.
