“ Amazing Day in Tochigi ”

We had an amazing time in Tochigi with Yoko (her hometown). My husband and I were in Tokyo for our honeymoon and when I think of Tokyo in the winter, I think of one thing: strawberry season! And having done a homestay in Tochigi during my student years, I thought, “What better way to introduce Japanese strawberries to my husband than to bring him to a farm for all you can eat strawberry picking—and not just any strawberries, but the ultra rare Tochihime, known to be the sweetest and juiciest strawberry in Japan... so delicate that it can only be eaten in Tochigi itself?” However, it has been some time since my homestay so I found Yoko-san online who helped make it all happen (Big plus: Tochigi is her hometown)! It was a great escape from Tokyo for a day and totally worth it as we were also able to experience inaka-soba (country style soba) at Izuruya and visit the funky Shinshoga Museum (New Ginger Museum).

Yoko:

Thank you very much for your wonderful review, Felicity-san! I had a lovely time with you and your husband in Tochigi. Thank you for having me as your guide. I was happy to have helped you explore Tochigi on the tour as a part of your honeymoon. Tochigi is my home prefecture, but actually the places we visited were new to me. Furthermore I wasn't aware of Tochihime though Tochigi is famous for strawberries production. I learned from you a lot about my home prefecture! I'm grateful that you gave me such a great opportunity. I was impressed with your deep knowledge about Japan and culture, also your Japanese speaking skills. I hope you had a lovely honeymoon in Japan. I hope I can see you again in the near future. I hope both of you share a long and happy life together.
