Most of strawberry is grown in the greenhouse which manage temperature, so Although it is different depending on kinds, from December to March the best season to pick strawberry is coming.
The low temperature makes strawberry taste good, so I suggest you to go during the cold season. In 2020, also the season is from December to March.
In Fukuoka, the southern part of Japan, the best season lasts until March, while in Miyagi, the northern part of Japan the season lasts until June.
How to enjoy Strawberry Picking in Japan?
To enjoy picking strawberry, depending on the firms, it sometimes needs reservation, so if you decide the firm, watch out if it needs reservation or not.
And also, the cost is different depending on the time. From December to May, the cost is getting cheaper. The usual cost in firms in Chiba is 2,000 yen for adults and 1,500 yen for children.
Moreover, in the season from December to March, firms of strawberry are crowded, so I suggest you to avoid the season, and go there in April.
You have better take belongings such as wettish with you because, sometimes there is no tish to wipe dirt in the firm.
