Colourful Potato-Digging Experience
I found a heart-shaped potato! It's just like digging for treasure!
Are potatoes really this colourful?!
A delicious baked potato that looks just like whipped cream!
Popular strawberry juice is perfect in the summer!

"Potatoes are boring!" Well, that's where you're wrong! Yellow, pink, purple... Did you know that potatoes were this colourful?

Dig up the very first new potatoes of the year and fill bags to the brim with them!
At the end, head to Biei Senka local farm shop and sample a delicious baked potato and popular strawberry juice.
