Japan opens drive-thru strawberry picking in times of Covid

The Japanese Prefecture of Saga's Japan Agricultural Cooperative has devised a way for socially distanced strawberry picking in the heart of Tokyo and revealed the details last week. The pop-up fruit-picking site is directly below the Tokyo Tower.

Visitors drive through the tent filled with fruit, pick their bundle and a couple other pop-up shops await them on the other side. They include a famed sandwich store and smoothie establishment to serve up strawberry-themed treats to go along with the fresh fruit visitors head home with.

The organizers promise all precautions for coronavirus with fans for circulation while driving to the pop-up stores, and no one needs to leave their cars to enjoy the event.

According to an article on cnet.com, tickets are limited to 153 pairs over two days starting Jan. 15 to 16, but for the groups that do get to partake, this will surely be an interesting experience.
