Flower picking

In Tateyama, where spring comes early, spring flowers can be enjoyed from January. Along the Flower Line, a coastal road that runs around the tip of the Boso Peninsula, orange poppies and bright yellow mustard flowers welcome drivers and bikers. Facilities are available so that visitors can pick their own flowers.

Strawberry picking

Blessed with a mild climate, Tateyama bustles in spring with tourists who come to enjoy strawberry picking. Different species are each characterized by their own flavor, sweetness, sourness, and texture. The strawberry picking farms are open from January to the middle of May. Available species and admission times differ depending on the season, so ask the farm for specific details.
