Spring in Nanbu!

By Simon Bernard
Guest Writer

The cool autumn air is here and new varieties of fruit are starting to become available.

Japanese pears gAkansuih and gYamumoh varieties are available. You can pick delicious gTsugaruh Apples and gMiki Lifeh 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 parkfs giant water slide!
