We run an apple farm at the foot of Matsumoto Alpspark in Nagano Prefecture, Japan.
You will see a traditional Japanese satoyama view.

There are a lot of apple orchards and traditional Japanese houses in the neighborhood, and you will enjoy beautiful view of the city.

Everything in the fields and mountains looks fresh when spring comes, the apples are turning red in the autumn.

We are spending a relaxing life with our children and we eat fresh vegetables and fruits from our garden and orchard.

You will enjoy apple picking in autumn season.

Please come and spend a wonderful time here. We look forward to seeing you.
