Kawagoe Strawberry Field Sujino
Sujino is one of Kawagoe’s largest strawberry farms in Saitama Prefecture.
We strongly recommend visiting in the morning while there are still enough strawberries to pick.
Despite their limited English, the owners of the farm—the Sujinos—use gestures to offer explanations or answer questions in a way that is easily understandable.
After you pay the entrance fee, you will change your shoes into the sandals provided by the farm. A briefing on the strawberry farm is followed by an all-you-can-eat period of 30 minutes. If you like condensed milk, you can purchase a bottle separately for 200 yen. You’re also welcome to bring your own ingredients to taste test with the strawberries.
At the farm’s store, you will find packaged strawberries, as well as jams and sorbet made entirely from Sujino’s strawberries. The jams and sorbets do not need to be refrigerated, making them ideal gifts for family and friends.
|Farm Name||Kawagoe Strawberry Field Sujino|
|Farm Information||Located near Kawagoe’s landmark, Kawagoe Castle, the farm is owned and operated by the Sujinos. The farm has two hothouses: one in the store and the other for strawberry picking. The farm employs an elevated solution culture method to grow their strawberries, where seeds are planted one meter off the ground. Since the berries can be picked standing up, all visitors, from children to the elderly, can enjoy the experience. The wide paths also provide enough room for wheelchairs. Kawagoe Strawberry Field Sujino grows Beni Hoppe, Akihime, Kaorino, Yayoi Hime, and several other varieties. To ensure the highest quality of strawberries, the farm takes time and care to grow their fruit.|
