Grape Picking Tokorozawa Vineyard
Due to its frequent appearance on television and in travel books, the Tokorozawa vineyard is a popular destination for people on a fruit picking day trip from not only Saitama, but neighboring prefectures including Tokyo.
During picking season the vineyard is open daily. There is some small play equipment that young children can use. Some other merits of this vineyard:
- It is normally okay to bring a bento and eat it there. This may change due to the pandemic.
- You can also pick on a rainy day as they have covered vines.
- Wheelchair, buggy and stroller friendly.
- Toilet on site.
- Pet friendly.
Normally no booking required, however during this period with Coronavirus they may require booking in advance. They do not have anything to that effect on their website at the moment, but I advise that you ring them before you visit. The phone number is :04-2944-1556. Parking for 35 cars.
