Kochi Makino Botanical Garden Director Tetsuo Koyama and his wife visited Dimbula
This morning, Mr. and Mrs. Tetsuo Koyama, the director of Kochi Makino Botanical Garden, came to Dimbula. Mr. Koyama's home is in Chigasaki, and he knows Fujisawa very well. He just returned from overseas yesterday, and we promised to meet today two months ago. First of all, we served black tea and a new banana pumpkin waffle.
“A rare first taste! This cinnamon sauce is delicious!” Since 1971, Mr. Koyama has worked as the director of the Peradeniya Botanical Garden in Kandy, Sri Lanka for two years.
“Sri Lanka is very famous for cinnamon,” said his wife, who also speaks Sri Lanka. Today, I was asked if it would be possible to dock tea with a newly developed plant in an Asian country. . . .
Until now, many plants have been developed for use in diet, medicine, and beverages. I was also included in the group this time. With the energetic power from Mr. Koyama, my dreams will expand!
Look at the clear autumn sky and come up with ideas while drinking tea!
