They have trees that are low enough for picking, that way no one will be left out! There are also shuttle buses available to travel between orchards 🌳🚙🌳

🍒Over 1,500 Trees Containing 50 Varieties of Cherries!!!🍒

Receiving an award from the Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry, and Fishing Award (the highest award in the National Fruit Contest), second generation owner Masakazu Ohashi's love of sharing his product with others beams through his smile! Ohashi Cherry Farms has been around for over 50 years and inturn, has a lot of special historical information about it. The harvest season is from mid-June to late August, which is part of Japan's rainy season. No worries though! Ohashi Cherry Farms has the largest indoor orchard in Japan (11 acres!) and an all-weather dome, so nothing will get in your way of eating all the cherries you want!

    For a small added sum, you can take home the cherries you picked! Since there are so many differnt cherries, the price depends on the cherry, but it is still very reasonable.

    The farm has 4 special cherries that aren't sold at whole sale markets!
    🍒The SATO NISHI; very well known in Japan, not as sweet as American cherries, almost a bit tart. 🍒NANYO; is bigger than Sato Nish cherries and said to be the most popular in the orchard. 🍒GASSAN NISHIKI; the Gassan Nishiki cherry looks like it could be the Golden Delicious apple's baby! It's roughly the same size as the Nanyo, but has the highest sugar content among cherries. 🍒SUMMIT; a LUSICIOUS dark red/burgundy color and just happens to be Japan's largest cherry!
