Mikan Picking on Mt. Tsukuba

There is a lovely little mikan (mandarin orange) orchard on the slopes of Mt. Tsukuba. It costs 300 yen per adult (sorry, I can’t remember how much it was for kids) to get into the orchard. You can pick-your-own mikans, eat as many as you like while you are in the orchard, and then take some home for 300 yen/kg. I am not sure what the address of the orchard is, but look for the orange 「みかん狩り」 (mikan gari) signs as you start the ascent up Mt. Tsukuba.
