Omagari-cho Strawberry Orchards

小曲観光いちご組合

Sweeten your trip with freshly picked strawberries
Omagari-cho in southern Kofu is Yamanashi prefecture’s biggest strawberry production area, blessed with the longest hours of sunlight in the country. Strawberries are grown in greenhouses using both regular soil planting and raised gutters to ensure clean fruits and minimize the strain on the body during picking.

Strawberry picking is one of the most popular winter and springtime activities here in Japan's "fruit kingdom" Yamanashi prefecture; both old and young alike can have fun devouring as many berries as possible within the prescribed time-limit, in the comfort of a warm greenhouse!
All-you-can-eat picking sessions include free condensed milk, for enhanced sweetness.
