Kawagoe in Saitama Prefecture is only an hour away...
@FARM is a sightseeing farm that opened in 2017, where visitors can enjoy strawberry picking.
One of the strawberries harvested here is a variety called Tochiotome, a rare variety to have at a strawberry farm in the Kawagoe area. Tochiotome is known for its pronounced sweetness and rich flavor.
Those wanting to pick strawberries should first go to @FARM FARMER’S MARKET, the store adjacent to the greenhouse.
After paying for the strawberry picking, you will receive a fifteen-minute explanation in the greenhouse, and then go on to enjoy picking strawberries for 30 minutes. The farm lends guests plastic covers for their shoes so that you don’t have to worry about the dirt.
The strawberry beds are around 110cm in height, allowing both adults and children to pick strawberries while standing. Condensed milk to pair with the strawberries you’ve picked is provided for free.
