"Sweet Apples" Nagano Shopping Tip by chatterley

Nagano Shopping: 5 reviews and 1 photos

What to buy: Nagano can be considered a fruits paradise, and various fruits can be enjoyed during different times of the year:

Tsugaru Apples - Aug-Sep
Sensyu Apples - Oct
Fuji Apples - Nov-Dec
Kyohou Grapes - Sep-Oct
Shinano-purple Grapes - Sep
Kawanakajima-hakutou Peaches - Aug-Sep
Nashi Kousui Pears - Aug-Sep
Nashi Nansui Pears - Oct
(strawberry picking is available from Jan-Jun)

During our stay at the ryokan, the owner offered us Fuji apples (free-of-charge) and they were the sweetest, juiciest apples we've ever eaten (really!)

What to pay: We saw the apples being sold at shops in the train stations and cities - one fruit costs about 150 - 200+ Yen.
