Spring in Nanbu!

By Simon Bernard
Guest Writer

Autumn is in the air and it is time for picking fresh fruit!

Delicious Japanese crisp & juicy pears called “Yamumo” and “Chojuro are ripe & ready. American style pears called Bartlett are ready as well!

Grape lovers should try picking the variety called Campbell!

Apple season is peaking as well with Tsugaru, Red Gold and Senshu available.

Just go to the Nagawa Tourist Information Center, #14 on the map, they 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 tree house camping, the 100 foot dragon tower for the kids to climb or take them to the water park’s giant water slide! For a free color English guide map with directions from Misawa Air Base go to Misawa ITT or Misawa Inn and pick one up today!
