Cherry-picking season is underway! 

Main content starts here.


In Yamanashi, fruits made up over half of the prefecture's gross agricultural production. Fruit-picking season in Yamanashi begins with cherries. These high-quality fruits ripen like red jewels at the beginning of summer, and hands-on cherry-picking for tourists is one of the most popular activities. Cherries grow in cold areas, and Yamanashi is said to be the southern limit for cherry cultivation in Japan.
