Strawberry Picking season Shimura Strawberry Farm | SAKADO

Strawberry Picking Saitama – The strawberry picking season for 2020 will open on Tuesday January 7th at Shimura Strawberry and Flower fields Farm in Sakado, Saitama. Of all the strawberry picking greenhouses I have been to, I find this one the most fun for young kids. The season will run until around the middle of May (dependent on weather and other factors).
The charges for the 2020 season
Thirty minute course:
From January to March it costs 1900 yen for adults, 1,500 yen for children aged three years old or over and 200 yen for toddlers (two years old and under).
From April 1st to May 7th it costs 1600 yen for adults, 1100 yen for children and 200 yen for toddlers.
From May 8th until end of season it costs 1300 yen for adults, 900 yen for children and 200 yen for toddlers.
There is also a sixty minute course which is relatively better value – if you can eat that much strawberries! For an adult that costs 2100 until end of March, 1800 yen from April to May 7th and 1100 yen after the 7th. Kids is 1600 yen until end of March, 1200 yen until May 7th and 1000 yen until end of season. Toddlers is a fixed cost of 200 yen.
You can also buy punnets of strawberries. The prices generally start from 600 yen – it will depend on the time of year.
The farm is open to the public from 10 am, the closing time depends on the strawberries on the day, but generally they close around 4.30 pm. The strawberry farm is open from Tuesdays to Sundays, closed on Mondays. The location and website are in the grey details section at the bottom of the post.
