Zenjyoji area, where the Nishide family is located, is a small district at the side of the Tawara River, a tributary of Uji River. The Zenjyoji temple was first built in 987, and the lands in this area was administered by the temple for centuries.

Modern Heritage Grade, Matcha Kuwari uses only leaves from the region of Zenjyoji in Ujitawara. The family named it “KUWARI” which was the name of Zenjyoji before the middle of Heian era.
