And so we sung "it's raining grapes!! in Yamagata!!!

At the Mahoroba Orchard in Yamagata, we picked and ate so much grapes for nearly two hours.

Paying 500yen you could, and indeed we ate so much purple and green grapes in the orchard.
These grapes picked and ate at the orchard are fresh, juicy and so sweet!
Paying 1,000yen, we took away a basket full of grapes from the orchard.

Being my first time to see a live grape tree/vine, i took my time to inspect the plants, fruits and the farmers were
kind and patient to answer all my questions. I guarantee you that it would be worth your time, money and satisfy
your curiosity when you visit Mahoroba Orchard in Yamagata!!!
