Head out to Gunma to try some of the tastiest fruit in Japan, fresh from the tree!
Approximately 60 miles northwest of Tokyo lies Gunma Prefecture, a place blessed with rich, fertile soil and plenty of arable farmland. The topography of the prefecture, where some of Japan’s tastiest seasonal crops are harvested, contains vast plains surrounded by mountainous areas. When combined with the temperate lowland climate, the landscape has ideal conditions for growing fruits and vegetables. In fact, you can forage for a range of luscious berries, apples, pears, giant grapes, juicy cherries, mushrooms, and leafy cabbages all from Gunma.
