Nishiyama Farm is an farm for tourists, located at Akaiwa City, Okayama Prefecture. It is set deep in the mountains, where the visitors can enjoy picking fruits in the vast grounds.
Nishiyama Farm cultivates strawberries, blueberries and peaches. There are twenty varieties of peaches to choose from, and the visitors can enjoy peach picking from late June to early September.
This farm transforms pink-skinned peaches into white peaches, using a technique developed in Okayama. “Akatsuki,” a special product of Fukushima Prefecture, is turned into a white peach at this orchard, and the visitors can taste its unique variation.
Of the twenty varieties of peaches, “Shimizu Hakuto” is the most famous. This is a special product of Okayama, and the skin is light-colored even after it ripens. The sweet-tasting, beautiful peach is harvested from late July to early August.
The farm offers various peach picking sets, such as the “All You Can Eat Peaches” set and “Eat One, Take One Home” set. In the former set, visitors can enjoy chilled, ripe peaches for thirty minutes. The latter set offers a peach at the farm, and an additional peach to take home with you. There are other sets as well, which can be seen on the farm’s multilingual website (Japanese, English and Original Chinese Characters).
Fruit picking tours require a reservation in advance by telephone or facsimile, which can be made in both English and Chinese.
