Ehime Mikan Picking, Marmalade Making is a wonderful opportunity to interact directly with a Shikoku mikan farming family and meet some of the welcoming folks living in the Yawatahama region of Ehime. About an hour by train southwest of Matsuyama, the experience includes the chance to pick and eat a variety of citrus fruits the region is famous for. The terraced orchard provided spectacular views of the ocean and small islands separating Shikoku from Kyushu. Under sunny skies, our hosts spread a tarp and mats on the orchard floor and we dined on a most delicious obento lunch box featuring regional specialties. These included a tempura of shrimp and vegetables, fried chicken with mikan juice and mikan rice balls. Following the harvest and lunch, we were chauffeured to a spotless commercial kitchen operated by the Yawatahama Ward office. There, the kind ladies of the community guided us through the marmalade making process and we bottled multiple jars using Haruka variety mikans. We were also invited to try other varieties created by some of the gold medal winners from last November's Dalemain World Marmalade Awards and Festival. Our product was entered in the "homemade division" for the next festival. Loaded up with our marmalade and several bags of fresh fruit, our hosts returned us to the train station. With the increasing popularity of Japan as a tourist destination, this is a special opportunity to get off the beaten path and away from the crowds to see the real Japan.

Wasabi Farm Tour in Okutama, Tokyo
Food Tours
We booked this tour on a recent trip to Japan and it was quite nice. The location is a bit far from Tokyo, so anyone planning this should set aside a day for the round-trip, or plan to stay around the Okutama area. We did ours as a day trip. We met David at the train station and started our walk up to his small farm. The hike is doable but a decent climb uphill on maintained gravel trail. Once at the farm David shares a wealth of knowledge about wasabi, how it grows, how to farm it, and most importantly how to pick and enjoy it. We sat down with some warm tea and grated fresh wasabi which we were able to try on its own as well as with some roast beef. It was both an enjoyable and educational tour.
