Chiba pear is the best in Japan
Most think of Tottori or Yamanashi when it comes to pears, Chiba prefecture has the highest production, cultivation area and shipping volume in Japan.
Developed from determination
”Unlike the other pear orchards, we use a special method that’s different.” says the 8th family head Sokichi Tanaka.
”Our residence is in Ichikawa, and it takes 3 hours round trip to come here and go back. So, in order to make better pear, we shortened the time required to do the tasks. ”
During our visit to the farm in Tomisato, we picked ”Hosui” pears which Tanaka has picked out for us, and ate without peeling the skin.
To have the trade name ”Yozaemon”
”Since you have an established tradition in your family, was it an easy decision for you to succeed your family business?”
After that, he revived the trade name ”Yozaemon” as the name of his farm, started to spread information about it, and poured his heart and soul into establishing the brand ”Yozaemon pear”.
