Spring in Nanbu!
By Simon Bernard
The cool autumn air is here and new varieties of
fruit are starting to become available.
Japanese pears “Akansui” and “Yamumo” varieties are available.
You can pick delicious “Tsugaru” Apples and “Miki Life” apples. Campbell and Portland grapes are out as well!
American style pears Bartlett are available only for sale as they need a bit of time to
ripen after harvesting.
Just go to the Nagawa Tourist Information Center, the staff
will call a local farmer who will guide you to their farm.
There are many places in
scenic Nanbu Town where
you can not only pick & eat
fresh fruit but you can do
some sight-seeing as well.
Make it a day by visiting the
gift bazaar at the ceramic
center, the arts & crafts dry
flower shop or the 700 year
old Hokoji mountain temple.
There is camping, the 100 foot dragon tower for the kids to climb or take them to the water park’s giant water slide!
