Izu Fruit Park
- Mikan Oranges
Izu Fruit Park is a farm located in Shizuoka prefecture’s Mishima city. Visitors can enjoy picking strawberries, mikan oranges, melons and other fruit throughout the year.
The farm’s fruit recommendation is the strawberries. There are different varieties including benihoppe, which are sweet with just the right amount of tartness and a light, refreshing taste; and akihime, which have a full-bodied sweetness and a slight tartness. While on the farm, visitors can eat as many as they want to.
The strawberries here are grown in raised beds placed on racks that are elevated above the ground. When it comes time to pick them, visitors need not worry about the mud and dirt that comes along with conventional growing methods.
For the strawberry picking (all-you-can-eat), visitors also receive a serving of condensed milk, which makes the perfect accompaniment. Pour liberal amounts of condensed milk on the strawberries and enjoy a slightly different kind of taste.
2018 strawberry picking will begin in January. Start times usually depend on the year. It’s often said that the most delicious strawberries are the ones picked during the year’s first harvest, so we recommend going early during the picking season.
The farm has a large restaurant so it can accommodate group visits as well. On sunny days you can see Mount Fuji, making this a wonderful spot. Here you can sample luxurious meals that use fresh seafood caught in local waters.
On the farm premises, there’s also a large retail store, a shop making cheesecakes, and a shrimp cracker factory, giving customers a wide selection of souvenirs to choose from.
While tasting delicious fare and taking in the spectacular scenery, please make yourself at home and have a relaxing time here.
