What to Expect
Kobe Nishi-ward is a secret fruit paradise and we can enjoy fruit picking in spring, summer and fall.
This time I will take you to one of the pick-your-own grape farm, where you can eat grapes straight from the vines. If you would like to take some grapes with you as well, you can do so for a reasonable price. After enjoying the fruits, I will take you to my home town, Akashi-city and show you Akashi castle and Akashi Park. They remind us the history of Japan and now they are a place of rest and relaxation for all Akashi citizens. After that, please try the Sushi in Akashi city. Akashi bream is very famous in Japan; I am certain that you will be satisfied with that sushi.
If you want to eat more, I will take to a famous shop serving Akashi-yaki. It is a ball-shaped pancake with bits of octopus. It is also the nation-wide famous snack from Akashi. Can you imagine what it is? Please take up the challenge of trying it, and you may become addicted to Akashi-yaki, as my family and friends have.
