Hirosaki Apple Park

The Fuji apple wasn’t named after Mount Fuji. Rather, it’s named after the place where it was created - Fujisaki, Aomori in Tōhoku. And Aomori is known to be the best apple growing region in Japan.

So, of course, my inner kiasu Singaporean was chuffed to have my first apple-picking experience at the best-known place to grow apples.

We picked our apples at Hirosaki Apple Park, home to 1,300 apple trees and 65 apple varieties. It’s pretty much an apple wonderland; here you can find tons of apple-related products, and the cafe even has apple curry and apple soft serve ice cream.
