Around Kobe in One Day: Grape Picking

September 20, 2017

We spent the entire day traveling around Kobe. We first headed to Hyogo, Kobe for Budo- gari (grape picking). It was a tiring one and a half hour drive,  but It is worth it. Lush green mountains, rice fields, and Japanese style buildings will receive you. So, here's the first of three parts of my Kobe adventure.

I was in Kobe last 2015 but only in the city and I’ve never been to its countryside. 
The fresher ambiance of Kobe's countryside has brought back the life to us. Rural air is the best.
Hyogo is one of Kobe’s nine wards. It was once the commercial center of Kobe but lost its prominence after world war II. But by some means, it brought back its glory through its lush fruit farms. 
Tourists will have their choice on what kind of fruit they want from strawberries to grapes to pears and apple. Hyogo has it. I want grapes so we went to the grape farm.
No words could ever describe the excitement I felt when I finally cut my first grapes hahaha. The man manning the farm is very cheerful too,  and even kind enough to lend us extra picnic mats to use. 
It's an unlimited time and eat all you can.
 FEE:  1000 Yen/adult and 700 Yen for elementary students and kids age 4
You can bring other foods like lunches and snacks and have your picnic under the grapes.
You can also bring your fur babies too which is really heartwarming since our furry babies need some relaxing time too. But make sure that they won't be eating grapes. Coz' grapes are a big NO for dogs.

Opening Hours: 9:00 AM - 5:00 PM
