Fresh Japanese pears ready to be handpicked by you.

Pear Harvesting!

Japanese pears are big and juicy. At Kasahara Orchards in Happo Town, visitors can pick their own from the 650 pear trees that sprawl the property. 1 kg runs for 800 yen, and reservations are not required for families or groups of 2-3 people.

Menu items using harvested pears can be enjoyed at Shirakami Café located next to the orchard.

Shirakami Cafe is open year-round (closed on Tuesdays) from 11:00 ~ 16:00. The lunch menu is only available until 14:00.
