Ibaraki Prefecture is Japan's second largest pear producing region. Pear production started here in the Edo era and Ibaraki is one of the country's oldest pear producers. Ibaraki is a perfect place for growing pears because of the large difference in daytime and nighttime temperatures and the availability of abundant water and rich soil. A wide selection of tasty pear varieties is available from early July to late October; starting with Kousui, followed by Housui and Akizuki, and Ibaraki Prefecture's original brand, Keisui, Niitaka, and Nikkori.
