In Japan, strawberry picking is a popular spring activity. When the fruits become ready to pick in early January, many families flock to strawberry farms, some even making a trip to famed picking spots in mountainous regions, to enjoy the sweet berries. Strawberry picking at the farms can be enjoyed until around the consecutive Japanese holidays, referred to as “Golden Week,” in early May in mainland Japan. So, don’t miss your chance to visit a strawberry farm near you and enjoy the taste of spring!
