On my way back to Australia from Korea, I stopped by Osaka, Japan (as per usual) and I didn’t have much planned except the usual SpaWorld in south Osaka and then my friend Sayaka suggested that we try strawberry picking! I’ve always wanted to do this, and even though winter was just starting to settle in, Savor Farm (サバーファーム) in Tondabayashi (富田林) is one of the earliest places of the strawberry picking season (Eastern Osaka).

Thankfully Sayaka had a car, as getting there by public transportation looked a bit complicated and long, we got there in about 30~40 minutes from Sakai Station (堺駅) on the Nankai line (南海線) and once you pay to go in there is a 30 minute all you can eat strawberries!! But the only drawback is that you can’t take any strawberries away from the farm, they must all be eaten there and then (unless you bag a few and put them in your pockets as you leave…)

The strawberries were a decent size, and amazingly sweet! Considering how expensive they are, we definitely got our money’s worth of strawberries! It was a great experience and one I hope to do again, but next time I want to go to Awaji Island!!
