Welcome to Lion Fruit Farm.

Lion Fruit Farm is a strawberry picking farm situated in a beautiful rural town of Chikuzen-machi, which is only about one hour’s drive from the Fukuoka city center.

Lion Fruit Farm is the largest strawberry picking farm in the Kyushu area, with 21 greenhouses built over an area of approximately 20000㎡.

There are many varieties of strawberry grown in Lion Fruit Farm, including Amaou strawberries which are the speciality of Fukuoka prefecture.

For the comfort of the visitors, all the strawberries are cultivated by “high cultivation technique”, growing strawberries at a height of around one metre above the ground, so that it is easier to pick strawberries. The grounds in the farm are also covered with sheets to keep your feet clean.

Escape from you busy lifestyle and indulge yourself with the taste of freshly picked sweet strawberries in the beautiful nature of Chikuzen-machi.
