Fruit ripened on the tree is sweet, juicy, and simply delicious
Picking fruit with my own hands and enjoying it on the spot was a first. I asked the grower for tips on spotting the tastiest pieces, and off I went. Selecting the fruit I liked from all those across the field, and filling myself up with it, is the greatest way to be happy.
Fruit ripened on the tree is sweet, juicy, and simply delicious. I was surprised first at the sheer number of tourist farms—grapes, peaches, cherries, strawberries, apples, and blueberries—and second that each variety tastes elegant and gentle, rich but not overly sweet. They’re all quite addictive, and I couldn’t help wanting more.
The view from the farms is just as delightful. In spring, peach blossoms in full bloom cover the fields in a blanket of pink. In summer, the mountains are enveloped in lush greenery. In autumn, leaves tint all the mountains and even the streets red and yellow. And in winter, Mt. Fuji turns a solemn pure white with snow. The landscape that changes with the seasons makes the fruit taste even better.
Tourist farms are a great deal, as they offer both delicious fruit and a beautiful view. And since these offerings change with the seasons, we visitors never tire of coming back.
