Those 2 packs I paid for 1400 yen!!



This board I guess is telling the history of that strawberry nursery and it looks like it started 1990 and maybe 1996 was then became popular , blah blah, whatever!! sorry I can't read katakana nor hiragana nor kanji

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~



My kids love strawberries!! Two weeks ago we tried strawberry picking here in Misawa. It was fun but quite expensive though, but the main thing is I finally found a place where I can have "all you can eat" strawberries hehehe. I've been looking for this place since last year.

I was surprised to see that they have the indoor strawberry picking. I thought it would be an outdoor activity. That day was so windy and chilly and I rather stay indoor while picking and eating strawberries than having it outside. Pretty impressive to see the inside of the nursery, it was clean and so warm; the humidity is really maintained and controlled.

Ichigo is the Japanese for strawberry.

The name of the place is "Agurinosato" but you can't find its name on their sign board because it's written in Japanese so.... never mind the name hehehe.

By the way, after paying 5400 yen or ~$60 ( 4000 yen -2 adults and 1 child + 1400 yen) then I figured it out that cost is the same as eating in a "all you can eat buffet" so I told my children (plus my daughter's bf), "this is gonna be our lunch!"

Cost:

"All you can eat strawberries"

Adult: 1500 yen (~$16.50)
Children: 1000 yen (~$11)

"To Go"

200 yen (~$2.20) per 100g

Chocolate dip (if you want your strawberries to dip into the chocolate fountain)- 200 yen (~$2.20)

Directions:

ask me ;-)
