Obina Blueberry Hill

Obina Blueberry Hill

Pick your fill of juicy-sweet blueberries, straight from the bushes
Gain a whole new appreciation for blueberries at Kofu's very first blueberry farm, opened in 2020!

Blueberries stop ripening any further once separated from the plant, and thus only reveal their true taste as they are picked straight from the bush and eaten on the spot; the now owner of Obina Blueberry Hill was floored to discover an entirely new taste to these fruits when he went blueberry-picking for the first time, and now aspires to teach others the one and only way to enjoy blueberries to the fullest.

Three main varieties of blueberries are grown on the farm: northern and southern highbush in July, and rabbiteyes in August (called that way because of their pink color as they mature, reminiscent of the eye color of a white rabbit).

The trick to getting the most delicious taste out of the fruits is to eat 3 different kinds of blueberries at once (one of each), so that all of their characteristics blend together just right!
