Attention:
・Depending on the condition and cultivation of the crops, the season and duration of this experience may be subject to change.
・Depending on the condition and cultivation of the crops, the species of tomato you can harvest will differ from day to day. There may be cases where all 16 species are not available for harvest, in which case we deeply appreciate your understanding.
・The tour may be cancelled in the event of rain. In addition, the tour may be cancelled if heavy rainfall the day before the tour causes the earth to become waterlogged, or if, due to the conditions of the field the tour needs to be cancelled even in good weather etc. We ask for your understanding in advance.

・We regret that we cannot allow participants to just observe. Please inform us of the exact number of participants who will enter the farmland.
・Upon entering the farmland, we will ask you to change into the boots we have provided and they will be disinfected in order to prevent disease-spreading microbes on your shoe soles getting into the soil. We appreciate your understanding and cooperation.

・There are no shaded areas in the field or the greenhouse so we ask that you bring sunhats, a towel to wipe away sweat and plenty of fluids to protect yourself against heatstroke.
・Smoking is forbidden in the fields.

Covid-19 Infection Control Measures

In order to prevent the spread of Covid-19, we politely ask visitors coming to Biei from an area where a State of Emergency has been declared to refrain from making a reservation.

In addition, should a State of Emergency be declared in Hokkaido, we will suspend the operation of all of our tours. We deeply appreciate your understanding in this regard.

We apologise for any inconvenience caused, but we ask for your understanding and cooperation.


・Please take care to confirm that you have not come down with a cold or a fever in the 2 weeks prior to the day of your tour.

・On the day of the tour, if your temperature measures above 37C, we will ask you to refrain from participating (if we have to cancel your tour due to a temperature or ill health, a cancellation fee will not apply). We will run each and every tour with a small number of participants in small groups, but we ask you to be mindful of the distance between yourself and other participants.

・In solidarity with customers, we are asking our guides to stay 2 metres (or, 3 large strides) apart from participants and other guides.

・Our guides will be equipped with hands-free microphones or similar, so that their voices will carry without being raised when offering guiding explanations. When offering explanations, the guides will do so without facing clients. We appreciate your understanding in this regard.

・We will do everything we can to implement Covid-19 infection control measures while on tour, but infection control measures are not infallible. We ask that you participate with this in mind.
