One of Japan’s classic autumn flavours, the persimmon comes into season from late September.
Persimmon (‘kaki’) picking is a well-loved activity across the nine different fruit plantations in Tanushimaru, Kurume City, where until around mid-December various species of the fruit can be picked, including the ‘fuyuu-kaki’, ‘nishimurawase’ and ‘taishuu’ species.
Rich in vitamin C, persimmon are also packed with health benefits, and with this year’s yield looking favourable, it’s an ideal opportunity to visit Tanushimaru and savour the delicious sweetness of hand-picked, newly ripened fruit.
What’s more, from the 17th to the 18th November, the ‘kaki matsuri’ (‘Persimmon Festival’) and ‘Nouveau Wine Festival’ will also be taking place (the persimmon wine is a must-try!).

【When】late September - mid-December (estimated)
【Opening hours & days】please enquire at the plantation you wish to visit
【Cost】 varies across plantations
