Grapes are one of the very reasons Yamanashi is dubbed the “Kingdom of Fruit.” Japan’s largest producer of grapes also cultivates many varieties that can be enjoyed at different times of the year. The diversity is astounding in both appearance and flavor. The Delaware has small, dark purple berries and a sweet flesh. The Kyoho has large berries with a rich flavor. And the Koshu native to Japan has pink berries and a light flavor. A great way to try them all is to visit Yamanashi several times in different seasons. Enjoy comparing the many flavors, and discover your favorite.
