Photo Journal: Festive fruit

(Mainichi/Toshiki Miyama)

Ripe Tochiotome strawberries are seen in trays after each one was carefully picked by hand in a greenhouse in the city of Moka, Tochigi Prefecture, on Dec. 5, 2018. The harvest is at its peak ahead of the Christmas season. The prefecture produces the most strawberries in Japan and the city is the top producer of the fruit among all municipalities in the country. Tochiotome was developed by the prefectural government and has recently been very popular nationwide. (Japanese original by Toshiki Miyama, Photo Group)
