Melon Picking in Saitama

July 25 @ 09:00 - August 10 @ 17:00

Watermelon picking Saitama

There are only a handful of places you can pick melons in Saitama. One such place is the Kamisato Strawberry and Tomato Farm near the Kamisato Service Area smart interchange on the Kanetsu Expressway. The farm is also located next to Cantare, a well known dessert buffet and restaurant. There is a sweets factory and bakery there too – you can watch them at work through the large windows designed to offer a view.

Melon Picking

This year the melon picking season at Kamisato farm is from Saturday July 25th to Monday August 10th.

Picking times are on the hour:

  • 9 am
  • 10 am
  • 11 am
  • 12 noon
  • 1 pm
  • 2 pm
  • 3 pm

⇈ From the farm’s Facebook page.

As it is one of only a few places you can pick melons in the area, it is advised you book sooner rather than later. You can book through Jalan-net or by ringing the farm directly. The farm phone reservation reception is open from 10 am to 5 pm. (Phone number below the “related posts” in the details section). Melon picking with slice of melon costs 2,400 yen per person. If you just want to eat a fresh slice of watermelon it costs 540 yen.

As the name suggests this farm also offers strawberry and tomato picking, but that is in the winter and spring months.


The farm is conveniently located close to the Smart interchange of the Kamisato Inbound Parking area (toward Tokyo) on the Kanetsu Expressway.

Other fruit picking you can enjoy in summer in Saitama includes blueberry picking, cherry picking and in August grape picking.
