    Gifu Gero-shi Norimasa 1315
    This agritourism farm is where you can enjoy blueberry picking from late June to mid-August. They use fertilizer made from rice bran and canola oil lees, and they thoroughly carry out cultivation techniques to remove harmful insects and weeds by hand. They do not use chemical fertilizers or agricultural chemicals, so it is popular because even children can pick and eat them right away. You can also take back the blueberries you pick, so they are a great souvenir (at an extra cost). It is fun to hunt for blueberries even in the rain, so you can casually drop by with a group or your family.

    レストランで食べた美味しい無農薬のブルーベリー狩りが食べ放題と聞いて行ってみました。 午前9時から午後5時までやっています。 30分1000円、40分1300円と二種類あり、たくさん食べたかったので、40分にしました。 初めて知ったのですが、ブルーベリーにも種類がたくさんあり、見た目は全く同じですが味が全く違う!!!田上農園さんでは一列ごとに違う品種が植えられており、自分の好みに合った味の木を探...

    "A farm located at the northern end of ""Maze, Gero City, a Village of Greenery and Clear Streams."" It was recognized as an official ""Beautiful Village"" in 2007 by the Association of The Most Beautiful Villages in Japan. They are committed to growing safe, delicious, pesticide-free blueberries and wasabi using organic fertilizer. Located in a cool region at an altitude of 688 meters, the large day and night temperature difference leads to a balance of sweet and sour flavors. You can eat the fruit on the spot where it was picked, but it may taste even better chilled and eaten beside the adjacent stream."

    Gifu Kamo-gun Kawabecho Kashio 983-1
    This shiitake mushroom farm is dedicated to traditional cultivation using logs. They forgo more efficient mushroom bed cultivation in favor of growing on timber, which requires hard work and is sensitive to environmental influences. They rely on the gradual decomposition of hardwoods such as nara and kunugi oak, resulting in delectable, fragrant shiitake with a nice, soft texture. You can pick-your-own shiitake mushrooms there if you make reservations at least a day in advance.

    友達としいたけ狩りに行きました。しいたけの説明がはじめにあってどういうしいたけをとればいいか教えてくれます。これから成長するしいたけはまだすごく小さくてかわいかったです。BBQで焼いて食べましたがとても肉厚でおいしかったです。
