Mother Farm, Chiba

I visited Mother Farm in Japan some time back and fell in love with the place! In the midst of such a busy city like Tokyo, it’s nice to take a day trip out of the capital and place yourself in a quiet farm nestled in Chiba. Expect to see your usual farm animals such as sheep and alpacas, there’s also petting stations for rodents. You can also pick your own fresh fruits at the fruit farms, or simply lay out a picnic mat and enjoy the lush greenery. The sunset view is also spectacular as it overlooks Mount Fuji in the distance.

Picking fresh tomatoes and kiwis. These go by the weight after picking and I brought them back with me. Super sweet and delicious!

A lot of the animals in this farm aren’t caged up, so expect to see some goats or sheep roaming about freely
