Tangerine Orange Picking
When the mountains from Oku-yugawara to Hakone are colored with multicolored autumn leaves, on the hillside along the sea, the golden mandarin oranges, exposed to salty sea breezes, reach their prime stage of growth.
The secret to the tastiness of Yugawara’s mandarins is the combination of sunny hillsides and their proximity to the sea. Abundant sunshine and a warm climate are key to producing sweet mandarins.
Yugawara’s mandarins grow quickly. Please enjoy the taste of freshly picked oranges until you are full.
“Tangerine picking,” while viewing Sagami Bay, is a pleasure unique to this area.
