Picking Asuka Ruby strawberry of Asuka village in the early morning. [A stay with breakfast in a Japanese traditional warehouse room of Asuka Guest House (limited to only one pair a day)]

A new seasonal plan became available from a strawberry farm in Asuka village.

This early morning plan was developed by the owner of the strawberry farm so that the guest can taste the strawberries when they're at their best.
For 30 minutes, you can eat Asuka Ruby, one of Nara's leading brand strawberries, as much as you like. Also comes with one package of the strawberries as a souvenir.

Because the picking takes place in the early morning, this program includes a stay in Asuka Guest House.
Your group can stay exclusively in the Japanese-style warehouse room (w/breakfast).
- Two to six guests can stay in the room.

< Unique features in this strawberry picking >
- Instead of agricultural chemical, lactic bacteria and syrups are used for making safe and health-conscious strawberries.
- The greenhouse is warm even in winter with the heat of fermentation. You can enjoy the picking in all weather.
- Free parking lots are available near the farm. Water services and Western-style toilets are fully equipped, as well as the tables and chairs for resting. The equipment makes this farm user-friendly, especially for women.
  • Cultivated in the vinyl house

  • An exclusive stay in a Japanese traditional warehouse room

  • Close to AsukaDera
