About us

Togokusan Fruits Park is located at the foot of Mt. Togoku (198.3 meters above sea level) on the outskirts of north-eastern Nagoya City. Here, you can enjoy rich greenery, pure water, bright sunshine and fresh air in a beautiful natural environment.

Togokusan Fruits Park opened in 1980, and is one of three Nagoya City-owned multipurpose agricultural parks. Its aim is to provide urban residents with a place where they can enjoy walking, viewing and studying fruit on the farm whilst helping promote urban fruit farming.

Fifteen kinds of popular fruit, such as pears and apples, grow in the fruit farm area. The World Tropical Fruit Greenhouse provides a unique opportunity to observe about 100 kinds of tropical and subtropical rare fruit trees. The Fruit House introduces a lot of information about fruit, and its fruit shop and sweets bar inside give you a chance to enjoy shopping and tasting fruit, respectively. In addition, the Rest House(restaurant), with many fruit-related dishes, and the park’s fishing pond will surely make your visit here an enjoyable one.
