On my way back home, I happened to drop in at the square in front of Kamata Station to find this food fair!
The alphabetical word TOMI was not enough for me to understand where it was, but the Chinese characters 東御 let me realize that this is from Nagano Prefecture various fruits. I was so excited.
As I expected, I found this corner with fruit juice. Lots of bottles on this table let me realize that all of them were apple juice!!
Tsugaru(つがる), Akibae(秋映), Shinano Sweet(シナノスイート), Gyokurin(玉林), and Fuji(ふじ) (5 kinds in total) and a package of Shinshu Apple. According to the website of Japan Agricultural Cooperatives(JA), there are another kind named Shinano Gold(シナノゴールド). The number is simply great!
As I couldn't afford to buy all, I bought the Shinshu Apple which the man from JA said was the sweetest. It is a straight juice made from 100% fruit juice. When I tried it by myself, I felt that the sweetness of the apple was condensed into the smooth stream of the juice.
The color is what is called "apple". Well, the price is 500yen. It'd be easier to decide to buy them if I clearly understood when to eat what. Hmm, anyway, I Envy Nagano Prefecture Full of Various Fruits for Having Many of Kinds Delicious Fruit Juice!
