The rainy season in Japan is called “Tsuyu”. The kanji characters 梅雨 mean “Plum Rain”, because it is the season when Japanese plums are harvested and preserved either as umeboshi/梅干-salted pickled plums, or in umeshu/梅酒-plums in sake.

But this is also the season for great peaches/桃(momo) being harvested in Shizuoka Prefecture, especially in Shimizu Ku, Shizuoka City, an area nationally famous for its greenhouse fruit growers.
This year promises a rich and very high quality crop!

  1. Yes, I entirely agree, the quality of the peaches in Shizuoka is so good, I have never tasted better, and this year is fantastic.
    May I also mention the Hirono, Mochimune and (of course) Momozono areas of Shizuoka City, where I buy my peaches. There are very few greenhouses, mostly just small local orchards, and some reasonable prices too.
