Found this one outside of Yanai in Yamaguchi Prefecture. Not sure which fruit it is other than a citrus.
Mito Town down in the west of Shimane is known for its Yuzu, a member of the citrus family that ripens in December.
Asahi Town is up in the mountains a few miles away from my village. They are known for their Nashi, Japanese pears. Much tastier than the pears we have in Europe.
Higashi Izumo seems to favor Kaki, persimmons.
Omishima, a small island in the Inland Sea, part of Ehime grows a lot of different citrus. Not sure which one this is meant to be.
