Hi, it’s Mr. Wada back on duty. Do you like fruits? (who doesn’t?) This time, I would like to share our strawberry picking experience in Okayama.
Strawberry Picking in Okayama: Nomaru Farm
Here we come. It was rather late for its season but berries were ripe and sweet still. Available between mid-December to early June. Generally speaking, strawberry picking in Japan is available between December-June at most farms.

Fee for Strawberry Picking
|Over 3 years old||500 yen|
|Below 3 years old||0 yen|
Note: For 40 minutes
It’s interesting that they got some varieties. Some are supposedly sweeter, some have more sourness, etc. We could try to compare and taste differences. Hum hum.
Did you know?
See some strawberries got powder? It is kind of a molds but totally harmless. No worries. (I thought it was sugar from berries!)
How do you find it? Turns out, I rushed and got full very soon. You know, strawberries have so much juice. My only advice is do not rush, slow down, take your time. Check farms near you and try it before the season ends!
See you around!
