The Best Guide to Tokorozawa Kitada Strawberry Farm

For strawberry lovers, pick some fresh strawberries at Tokorozawa Kitada Strawberry Farm (所沢北田農園いちごのマルシェ) when you stay in Tokyo. Unlike the other orchards and farms in the area, the farm operates on an all-you-can-pick style. As soon as you enter the greenhouse, the nice aroma of strawberries surrounds you!

During the strawberry picking session, you are free to as many berries as you want. As a few varieties of strawberries should be available on the day, don’t focus on one part of the greenhouse but explore the entire accessible area!

What to Expect at Tokorozawa Kitada Strawberry Farm

On the day after paying at the reception, the staff will let you know the area that you can pick strawberries. It might not be in the same greenhouse where the reception is located.

You will be given a basket and a piece of paper with your start and end time written. The staff won’t keep the time for you. Thus, please set an alarm on your phone so you are reminded that the 30-minute picking session ends.

In addition, we would recommend washing your hand before strawberry-picking. Sinks and soaps are located at the side of the resting area in each greenhouse (refer to the 2nd photo in the IG post).

Your belongings can be left in the farm’s locker.

Several table sets are in the resting area for you to enjoy the strawberries you picked with your families and friends. You can grab a cup of tea or coffee from the server server, too! Condensed milk can also be purchased on the spot if you want to add more flavor to the strawberries.

After finishing the strawberries, remember to throw away the rubbish responsibly. There are three bins: one for the pedicle, one for plastic, and one for paper cups and other rubbish.

If you haven’t had enough strawberries, check out the strawberry products, such as strawberry gelato on the way out. Pre-packed, good-quality strawberries are also on sale.
