  • Quite cute if you’re trying to kill some time in the area but I definitely wouldn’t go out of my way to come here. The fruit platter is quite tasty and the folks who run the place seem very sweet. The old man who gave us the tour of the premises was very friendly despite the language barrier and we were able to decipher about 50% of the species he pointed out. Occasionally, he stopped to take pictures of my fiancé and I. He also refers to the lady who prepares the fruits as “fruits mother” lol! I believe it is 500jpy for the tasting plate and tour. Beware - at certain points of the tour (near the greenhouse) there are HELLA mosquitos. You won’t be able to ignore their presence as they will announce themselves with a chorus of bothersome buzzing. Don’t expect to leave unscathed unless you’ve had the foresight to apply a strong deterrent.
  • A nice diversion on a drive around the coast. Plant and fruit lovers will really enjoy. But bring your mosquito spray!
