Things to Do Okayama: Enjoy white peach picking experience and exquisite white peach parfait


Table of Contents


Okayama Prefecture is a fruit kingdom. This time, we took a bus for a relaxing half-day trip to pick white peaches, which were just in season.
In addition to the freshly picked peaches, the white peach parfait we had at a cafe near the station at the end of the tour was also excellent.
I was able to enjoy many peaches and reconfirm once again the deliciousness of Okayama’s fruits.
I encourage everyone to experience fruit picking when it is in season! Recommendation.
