Their goal is to produce the tastiest and safest strawberries around.

JA Ashikaga Agri-land also welcomes visitors to Japan.

Throughout the grounds there are signs in both English and Chinese to help guide you along. Many of their visitors have commented that: “This is my first time eating such a sweet strawberry. You can’t find anything like it back home!”
It is only about a ten minute walk from the farm to Ashikaga Flower Park. In addition to being able to enjoy seasonal flowers throughout the year here, many people visit Ashikaga Flower Park from mid-April to mid-May to see the massive wisteria trellis in bloom. During the Garden of Lights illuminations that take place from late-October, visitors can enjoy fantastic scenery based on a yearly theme and flowers, which is also incredibly popular.
