Fukushima Prefecture is Japan's orchard king, producing all sorts of fruit, including apples, Asian pears, peaches and grapes. The FruiTea Fukushima is a "traveling café," created around the concept of an elegant space for enjoying uniquely crafted desserts and beverages made from local Fukushima fruit while gazing out the train windows or engaging in conversation.
