#TRAVELTOMORROW: Fruit-picking in Nagano – an Ideal Outdoor Activity in Summer & Autumn
  • #TRAVELTOMORROW: Fruit-picking in Nagano – an Ideal Outdoor Activity in Summer & Autumn


    As we head into the middle of summer, there’s one thing on our mind here in Nagano… fruit! Lots and lots of tasty fruit!


    Blessed with an ideal climate for growing many varieties of fruit, Nagano is without doubt most famous for its apples, followed closely by its grapes and peaches.


    Our ‘Enjoy the Fruit of Nagano’ page introduces the region’s delicious variety of apples, grapes, peaches and more and includes information on fruit-picking at one of the region’s many farms while here.


    While apples are yet in season, peaches are at their bet in August with different varieties of grape available from mid-August to mid-October. 


    From late-September to mid-November the orchards will be heavy with Nagano’s huge and delicious apples, ready to be picked directly from the tree or purchased at one of the region’s many markets and road stations.


    This information is provided as part of our ‘Clean Green & Healthy’ campaign, allowing you to plan and book your future travel to Japan with peace of mind.


    We hope this information inspires you to plan ahead and start thinking about your next visit to Japan – after all, fruit-picking really is a great way to get outdoors, eat healthy and savour the delicious fruit of Nagano.
