Hokota melon farm:

June to July is the peak of the melon season in Japan, so it is the perfect time to eat the delicious fruit. Melons from Ibaraki are famous through Japan for their juicy texture and sweet taste.

This tour includes all-you-can-eat melon so you will be able to fully enjoy the region’s popular fruit!

Fish market and sushi lunch

Being very close to a fishing port, Nakaminato is where you can get some extremely fresh fish and seafood.

The tour will make a visit to the fish market, before stopping at Yamasuisan sushi restaurant for all-you-can-eat conveyor belt sushi.

You can try many different kinds of sushi, from popular ones like tuna and salmon to the more exotic sea urchin and salmon roe.
