Agricultural Park

Makino Pick land is an agricultural park located on a plateau in Makino Town, Takashima City, Shiga Prefecture. The vast site consists of three major zones where visitors can enjoy various leisure activities in nature.

The main attraction is the orchard zone, where visitors can experience seasonal flavor picking. More specifically, you can pick cherries from late May to mid-June, blueberries from mid-June to early September, grapes from early August to mid-September, chestnuts, and sweet potatoes from mid-September to late October, and apples from early October to late November. Except for when the snow is deep, there are always delicious fruits and produce to pick, making the orchard zone a significant attraction.

The Park Zone, led by the Center House that manages the facilities, has a ground golf course, a park, a produce stand, cafes, and restaurants. Inside the center house, there is a gelato store with an elaborate selection from standard to original flavors and a souvenir store with local specialties.

The roadside scenic zone is a must-see. The road passes through a vast orchard in a straight line and is lined on both sides with tall metasequoia trees, creating a stunning landscape. The trees look different in every season: greenery in spring and summer, foliage in autumn, and covered with snow in winter. Enjoy the breathtaking view selected as one of "Japan's new 100 best roadside tree views" and "100 best places to see autumn leaves in Japan".
