Fruit picking in Osaka: Getting a little dirty is part of the fun!
Arriving at Savor Farm in Osaka is like being transported back in time to a different era. This feeling of being in a time warp is a big part of the area’s rustic charm. Seeing the 20-hectare fields spread out in front of you gives the feeling of being in the countryside; quite an achievement considering that the Tondabayashi area is increasingly being consumed by the ever-expanding city.
The spot can make for a great date or group activity, but the location is also family-focused. Parents of young children can rest assured that there will be plenty to occupy young minds. There is the so-called magic house that offers visitors a chance to view fruits from all over Asia, a lawn area where visitors can play ball and an adventure fort.
The biggest attraction for kids and adults alike are the fields full of fruit where visitors have the chance to pick and eat their own fruit straight off the vine. Fields offering treats such as blueberries, grapes, pears, mikan (citrus fruits), strawberries (in the winter), as well as more savory offerings such as sweet potatoes, and even flowers are all available. The best part: getting a little dirty is part of the fun!
While the summer can sometimes appear to be never ending in Japan, it has its advantages. This seasonal activity is a great time to head outdoors and experience the unique attractions of each season. Enjoy sunny weather by heading out to Savor Farm and taking advantage of fresh fruit that can only be found in certain months of the year.
