From January to around May, you can enjoy strawberry picking around Lake Hamana in Hamamatsu, Japan. "Akihime (章姫)" is one of the strawberry varieties that take the focal point in farms for tourists. Local Shizuoka-grown "Akihime" is characterized by its large grain size and sweetness with just a tid bit of tartness. All-you-can-eat strawberry picking is a popular activity for everyone from children to adults.
Point!

Most of the strawberry picking tourist farms near Lake Hamana practice plastic greenhouse cultivation. Even in the cold season, you can comfortably enjoy strawberry picking without worrying about the weather. Inside the plastic greenhouse, under the fine weather, the temperature reaches 20-25℃ in the daytime. Therefore it is recommended to wear clothes that are easy to take on and off.

How to pick strawberries
① Gently hold the strawberry and cast down the calyx
② Pull it toward you as is
③ It can then be plucked easily
④ Please try to turn the strawberry half way if it failed to come off after the third step

※ It'll damage the stem and branch if you pull it forcefully!
How to distinguish a tasty strawberry
icg4.jpg
  • Ones with a dark green calyx, healthily wrapping around the top and with an entirely red body to the base of the calyx.
  • Ones that have a small calyx in comparison with the size of the strawberry.
  • Shiny on the surface.
  • Seeds are evenly placed, sinking down and have some firmness.
How to eat strawberries
  • Japanese strawberries are sweet and delicious so you can eat them raw.
  • In Japanese strawberry picking, it is common to dip strawberries into condensed milk. Please try it out.
  • The container you receive in the farm is separated into two parts, one is for condensed milk and the other is for the calyxes.
