Saitama Strawberry Picking Season | VARIOUS LOCATIONS
January 15 @ 10:00 - April 4 @ 16:30Yen1800
Saitama Strawberry Picking Season 2019
Saitama Strawberry picking season starts as early as mid-December in parts of Kanto, but it is not until the end of January that all the strawberry picking farms are open daily. This year, the 2019 season is opening a little later than the last two years, but the majority of strawberry farms will start opening for picking from about January 15th.
The system of strawberry farms in Saitama is usually a fixed price for a half of hour of picking and all-you-can-eat (as you pick, you pay extra to bring strawberries home). Some farms do not have a time restriction, but generally those farms are more expensive. The prices per farm differ greatly, some start as cheap as 500 yen for children, but adult costs are usually around 1,500 yen. As the weather warms, it is not unusual for the farms to reflect this in their charges and lower the price in April or May. Most farms do not charge for children two years old and under. Parking is typically free. If you do want to bring the strawberries you picked home, they will charge by the weight of the strawberries you picked.
Below is a selection of farms where you can enjoy strawberry picking in Saitama (it is not exhaustive). Each farm listed is linked to a website with further information. However, the information on the websites is only available in Japanese unless otherwise stated. I have not quoted prices below, as they can often change. Please see the individual farm website for price information. Roman numerals are used so even if you do not read Japanese you can see the prices.
If you would like more information in English on a particular farm, please ask in the comments and we will get back to you as soon as possible. Also, please feel free to add your own recommendations in the comment area.
