Strawberry Picking in Gifu Japan

Nohime Strawberries from Gifu
One of the great joys of the late winter, early spring season here in the mountains of Gifu for me is the strawberry picking season.

Strawberry picking or ichigo gari in Japanese is a great chance to get outdoors with the warmer weather and spend some time doing a fun activity with family or friends.

You don’t just get to pick these gorgeous sweet red berries, but the chance to indulge in quite a few as well, which might just be the best part of this whole activity.

Gifu Prefecture has its own brand of delicious strawberries called ‘nohime’ which are known for their large size, tender flesh, and superb balance of sweetness and tartness.

A great place to try it out is Tumitumi Farm, a five minute walk from Tarumi Railway Motosu Station in Motosu City, where for ¥ 1,900 you can pick and enjoy your heart’s desire of strawberries for 30 minutes.

Make sure you are hungry as this is an all-you-can-eat fair and a must for any serious strawberry lover.

The farm is open from mid-December to early-June with an advance reservation required.
