Grape Farm Visit in Japan

We went to grape farm two days ago…really good experience and the grapes are among the best you can get! Can’t even find in supermarket, best quality seedless grapes fresh from the trees!

Megumi loves those grapes too. 🙂

There are 7 types of grapes available for us to pick and eat freely, there are actually more variations, but on that day only 7 types are opened to the public.

Entrance fee is JPY1300, with 10% discount for Mazda staff (my friend works in Mazda, Japan).  I think we ate more than that amount, as those grapes of of the very best quality, very expensive!

These are my friends, we went there together (Lee Ming and Wan Jing, married couples):

This is a buffet style of grapes fest, eat however much you can, open from 10am till 4pm. We went in at around 12 noon, came out at around 3pm. Eat till can’t take it anymore… 😛

Grapes are really beautiful to picture…

Some of the species are even bigger than Megumi’s head!

Green grapes are very nice too, my favorite is green grapes. No, this is totally different from those you found in the supermarket, this one is really very very nice!

This is the place of the fruit farm. Not only grapes, but many other kind of fruits as well. We came for strawberries too last few years. 🙂

Ok…family shot… (this photo was taken after we finished eating…can see the clock is 2.48pm already…good weather that day, not very hot and not very cold).

We will be leaving Japan soon…so this should be the last time we went for fruits buffet in this farm…but still…hope there will always be chance to try again in future.

Good to have friends and family in Japan… 🙂
