Experience Details

Matsukawa, a small village in the center of Nagano Prefecture, is a popular fruit-picking destination with over 100 years of fruit farming traditions. This experience takes guests outside to see how much work and thought goes into growing some of Japan’s premium fruits. After learning about the ins and outs of fruit farming, guests are treated to a six-meal lunch in the heart of the orchard. The menu consists of classic French dishes with a Japanese twist, with each course highlighting high-quality ingredients sourced from around Nagano, including kurobuta pork, which has been affectionately nicknamed “the wagyu of the pork world.” Of course, the dessert features sweet fruit harvested in Matsukawa. Experience flow: Meet the host at the designated meeting point Walk about 30 minutes around the orchard, talking about the history of Matsukawa and the fruits Lunch (about 1.5 hours) Receive gifts from the farm and head back Which orchard guests will visit will depend on the season and availability. Between June and November, many fruits will be ready to harvest, including (but not limited to) cherries, peaches, and apples. Sample menu: Sesame biscuit with Amago trout cream filling Sansan Farm’s pork head cheese and organic vegetable planter Salmon fillet smoked on-site with apple tree charcoal & buckwheat crepe with crispy cheese Peach and tomato gazpacho soup with savory Sable cookie Sansan Farm’s kurobuta pork loin roast with apple chutney and spicy risotto Peach and lemon mousse cake Locally roasted coffee brew or Tenryumura Japanese black tea Note: Guests should inform the host of any dietary restrictions at the time of booking.
