Strawberry season starts in January in Kyotango. Farmers use greenhouses to get the crop out early. This way we get to enjoy sweet strawberries in the cold-dark of winter.
Many farms in Kyotango also open up for strawberry picking. They let you eat as much as you like during the time allowed. It’s a great activity for the whole family. Children can enjoy the sweet taste while eating fresh fruit, and learn about where fruit comes from.
There are quite a few farms in Kyotango where you can pick strawberries. Here are a few that we recommend:
In Yuhigaura (Amino-cho), Kani Ichiban grows the akihime variety of Strawberry, known for their large size and sweetness. The picking season runs from January to May.
