Grape picking Sayama, Saitama. Sayama Grape season generally starts in August. What week in August depends largely on the fruit picking farm. Moreover, initially these farms only open for grape sales, picking doesn’t start until a couple of weeks after. The grape picking season is one of the shortest fruit picking seasons, often starting in late August or early September and generally finishing up in the middle of September!

Grape picking costs generally start from 600 yen for an adults, 500 yen for a school aged child, 400 yen for preschoolers and 200 yen for toddlers. The 2023 prices have not yet been released, but I imagine – like everything else this year – they will go up. The prices are for an eat as you pick system, but you can pay extra to buy the grapes you pick to bring them home.
