Ogose Bairin

The famous Ogose bairin is one of the three major Japanese plum groves in the Kanto region, which is around 30 minutes’ drive from Yugeta Shoyu.

It is one of the best Japanese plum groves in Kanto region. The origin of the grove is that the plum blossom trees were grown when Tenmangu shrine was separated from Kyushu Dazaifu (Local government office in Kyushu region). From mid Feburary to late March, more than 1000 Japanese plum blossoms, including some 600 year-old plum trees, bloom together. Plum festival (Ume matsuri) is also held during that time. Please contact Ogose Town Tourism Association for enquiries about the blooming season. Tel: 049-292-3121

Yugeta Shoyu also sells products at the pop-up store in the resort village. Please come and visit us!
