Wakayama | Strawberry Picking in Kinokawa

Come taste the sweet and juicy Marihime strawberries of Kinokawa City, Wakayama!

Marihime strawberries are a variety of strawberries that is cultivated only in Wakayama. Marihime was named with the hope that it will become a cute and loved variety like how the folk craft "Kishu Temari" is well-loved in Wakayama Prefecture. The Marihime strawberries are large, juicy, and surprisingly sweet with almost no tartness. Kinokawa City is the number one strawberry producer in Wakayama Prefecture, with Marihime and Sachinoka Strawberries as their main varieties. The sugar content of strawberries decreases from the moment they are harvested, so the most delicious way to eat them is to taste the freshly picked strawberries in the production area. Make sure to come and experience strawberry picking at Kinokawa City from February to April!
