Higashikata Fruit Parlor (東方フルーツパーラー Higashikata Furūtsu Pārā), originally titled The Radio Gaga Incident, Part 2 (ラヂオ・ガガ事件② Rajio Gaga Jiken 2), is the one hundred tenth and final chapter of JoJolion and the nine hundred fifty seventh chapter of the JoJo's Bizarre Adventure manga.

Summary

Lucy's cape has been caught by a mysterious guard rail, Radio Gaga, which inexorably drags her towards the gap between the plates. She also discovers her driver's corpse crushed between the plates, his internal organs now dangling out of his body. She is almost caught, but thankfully, Fumi throws his geta between the rail guard's plates to prevent it from crushing Lucy's arm. He then comes and pulls her out of the guard rail's grip before she is killed.

Fumi is confused by the realization that an intelligent guard rail just attacked them. Lucy apologizes for having roped Fumi into such a dangerous situation, explaining that she only expected to investigate the Locacaca and not encounter an enemy. She compares Radio Gaga to a creature guarding an area like a watchdog, which confuses Fumi further. Their discussion is interrupted when Lucy coughs blood, which worries the young man. Fumi tries to drag Lucy back into their car, but they suddenly slip forward as the driver's corpse appears to grab Lucy by the neck. As he pulls them, the driver begs Fumi and Lucy to bring him to the hospital. Lucy realizes that the driver is barely kept alive by Gaga on purpose. At the same time, Radio Gaga speaks and calls them out on wanting to leave the driver behind. Fumi tries to punch the driver to keep him away, but an intestine emerges from the rail guard and ensnares Fumi by the neck. As Fumi starts getting dragged into Radio Gaga, he desperately grabs onto the plates to survive.

While Fumi's clothes get sucked into the guard rail, Lucy notices the Joestar Birthmark on his shoulder. As Fumi's face comes into contact with Gaga, Lucy tells Fumi that he surely can start the car's engine from where he is, guessing that he must have an ability. Driven to his limit, Fumi takes his geta and throws it at the car, hitting the car's trunk and opening it. Lucy's items burst out of the trunk, and Fumi grabs onto an electric cord. Vines appear around Fumi's arm and use the cord to reach the car and start the engine. The car then slams into Radio Gaga. Fumi finds a pair of clackers and wonders what it is. He tosses them aside, preferring to fully unleash his Stand and pummel Radio Gaga. The rail snaps off, and the creature flees, slithering away on the hill. Fumi runs away as well, carrying Lucy on his back.

At Lucy's request, Fumi reveals that his full name is Joseph Joestar, the grandson of Johnny Joestar and Rina Higashikata. As they run, Lucy briefly spots Tooru busy digging up two Locacaca trees in the orchard nearby. Lucy tries to shout, but she coughs blood again, distracting Joseph and allowing Tooru to disappear without a trace.

The narration reveals that Lucy has died of a lung disease three years after the "Radio Ga Ga" incident and that she was unable to return to Japan again. Worried about her health, Joseph accompanied her back to America. However, he was no longer able to return to Japan as the United States entered World War II and the Pacific Ocean route became blocked. Joseph worked as Lucy's assistant, received an education, and earned citizenship in New York. In 1952, he met and then married a woman named Suzi Q in the Speedwagon Foundation, and they had a daughter together named Holy. Meanwhile, the Higashikata Family kept living in Morioh. In 1993, Norisuke Higashikata IV took control of the family and the Higashikata Fruit Company's business prospered. In 2010, their house was rebuilt by Yotsuyu Yagiyama.

In the present day, Josuke Higashikata and Yasuho find themselves without any Locacaca to cure Holy. Thinking somberly about Rai Mamezuku and Kei Nijimura's sacrifices, Josuke mentions that the fruits still exist somewhere in the Pacific Islands, although there is no one who could search for them. Incidentally, Kiyomi Kujo passes nearby with a baby in her arms. She drops her phone, and Yasuho kindly picks it up for her. As Kiyomi goes away, Yasuho and Josuke recognize her as Josefumi Kujo's mother, but Josuke realizes there is no point approaching her since she seems to have left Josefumi and has moved on. Josuke declares that he was born in the soil beneath the Wall Eyes, being neither Josefumi Kujo nor Yoshikage Kira. Nonetheless, Yasuho has checked inside Kiyomi's phone with Paisley Park and found that she has kept numerous photos of Josefumi inside. Josuke is moved, but the occasion has passed. Thus the couple head out of the TG University Hospital's parking lot. On their way, Yasuho mentions that Josefumi's name is due to Kiyomi's father once finding a geta with Joseph Joestar's name engraved on it and he couldn't stop thinking about it.

Josuke and Yasuho finally arrive at the Higashikata Fruit Parlor where Daiya Higashikata greets them. Inside the shop, the surviving members of the Higashikata Family, Mitsuba, Hato, Joshu and Tsurugi, are busy choosing a cake to celebrate Norisuke's discharge from the hospital. Daiya has trouble choosing a cake out of the most popular ones, and Hato argues instead that the cake should symbolize a new beginning. The Higashikatas suddenly all cry, unable to cope with the traumatizing events they have recently gone through. Tsurugi then suggests that Josuke be the one to choose the cake, to which everyone agrees. As Yasuho leaves the shop, she sheds a happy tear at the sight of Josuke having found a family he belongs to.
