Fruit Picking in ‘Fruit Kingdom’ Katsuragi-cho, Wakayama

In the foothills of the ancient Mt. Koya in Wakayama lies the rural district of Katsuragi-cho, an area famous for its bountiful fruit orchards, many of which are open to the public for fruit-picking day trips.

A fun experience for all ages, fruit-picking gets you out of the city, up close to nature, and lets you fill up on delicious freshly picked seasonal fruits.

Most fruit farms do not speak English but make a reservation in advance with us and you will be greeted with an English-speaking guide on the day.
