NAKAGOMI ORCHARD'S FRUIT PICKING

 
WELCOME TO 
NAKAGOMI ORCHARD'S FRUIT-PICKING
(NAKAGOMI NOUEN)
We are a fruit picking farm here in Yamanashi.
 You are welcome to visit us any time that is convenient for you as long as it is our harvest season.
 
Our fruit picking starts in the beginning of June with cherries and peaches and goes on until the end of November with various kinds of other fruits for almost six months in a year.
 
We are sure you'll enjoy picking & eating our seasonal fresh fruits.
We are usually open between 10 am-5pm but we may have longer opening hours for peak seasons and your visits can be arranged by appointment.
 
We will appreciate it if you can let us know around what time you are arriving and how many guests are joining you.
 
*Basically, we won't cancel our fruit-picking even though the weather is not good since we have lots of tents, green houses and dorms. Unless it is a very strong storm or typhoon, we will provide fruit picking.

* Yet, we ask you to bring rain coats, pants and boots on rainy day, because you might need them when you do picking fruits out of the trees. For eating place, we set it up, so you will not get wet.
 
When you come over to our farm by car, please take a look at the English map that I made on our website as well as your use of Google map!
 
 
 
*Our fruit picking for 2023 will start around June 3 with a set of cherry and peach picking. We are the only fruit farm that can provide plural fruit pickings as a set at one time in Japan. Also, we have some staffs who can speak English and Chinese. Possibly, 
we are the only fruit farm that can provide our guide in several languages.  
 We will continuously go on providing various kinds of fruit pickings until late November.

On our “Multi Fruit Special” for black grapes, shine muscat and pears, you can enjoy plucking our fresh and juicy fruits to eat on our farm.
There are still only few farms that can provide“Shine muscat” variety for fruit picking in Japan.
We are the only fruit farm that can provide three of these fruits at one time in Japan.
