Strawberry Picking season opens @ Shimura Strawberry Farm | SAKADO
January 2 @ 10:00 - January 8 @ 17:00
The strawberry picking season for 2017 will open on January 2nd in 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 end of May depending on weather and other factors.
This year the cost is 1800 yen for adults and children over 6, children between 3 and 6 years old are 1400 yen, 2 year old children are 200 yen. You can also buy punnets of strawberries. One punnet costs 600 yen.
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. They are not normally open for business on Mondays, except the opening day. The location and website in the details section below.
For FULL details of this strawberry from please see my article from earlier in the year of my experience there with my 4 young children.
