Fukushima prefecture’s Aizuwakamatsu city, famous for its nationally designated historical sites Tsuruga Castle and Oyakuen Garden, a Japanese garden beloved by the lord of Aizu, is where you will find Gaburi Garden, a sightseeing orchard visited by numerous tourists each year.
Gaburi Garden’s most popular fruit, the peach, is available to harvest from late July to early September. There are two courses, all-you-can-eat or peach picking, available at the farm; both last for 30 minutes and cost 1080 yen for adults, 864 yen for elementary school students, 540 yen for toddlers (ages 3-elementary school), and free for children under 3 years old.
Peach skins contain pectin, which is said to help with relieving summer related fatigue, and have fine fuzz to them that can easily be rubbed away before eating.
Gaburi Garden practices mineral cultivation, which involves growing its plants in soil that has been mixed with powdered shellfish. As a result of the mixture, the sugar content of the fruit is significantly higher, and overall sweeter tasting fruits can be grown. Thanks to this effort, visitors can enjoy greater tasting fruits every year.
At Gaburi Garden, you can also have barbecues from mid-July to early November, and outdoor roasting parties from late August to early November as well.
Why not come and enjoy fruits raised with sincerity and devotion at Gaburi Garden?
