Farm Tomita is one of the best tourist spots in Hokkaido where the summer is shorter than other prefectures in Japan, and has as large as 15 ha flower fields with mainly lavender. Every year, lively flowers with seven colors bloom like rainbow at the gentle hill!
Sunflower Festival at Hokuryu Himawari-no Sato is the largest scale one in Japan. You can see as many as 1.5 million sunflowers and enjoy flower maze that appears every year. The best season is August!
Hokkaido's Taisetsuzan Mountains and a town of hill Biei are covered with colorful flower fields from spring to autumn. At Shikisai-no Oka, you can see the flowers as far as the eye can see, and it's summed up in the statement that 'beautiful'.
Matsue Vogel Park is a theme park of flower and birds. A large greenhouse called Center Park is one of the largest one in Japan, and has various colorful flowers in full-bloom all around a year. In addition, they prepare many exciting events, such as Penguin Walking and Owl Flying Show.
2018 is a 5th time of Flower Carpet. Citizen volunteers make colorful flower carpet using petals grown in Hokkaido such as rose and carnation.
This is a museum of sand, that is rare in Japan. The Sand Museum, looks like Pyramids, has the world's largest hourglass which is 5.2 meters high and listed in the Guinness World Records. Also, I enjoyed drawing pictures with colorful sand for free.
A beautiful English garden that made as a first one in Japan. As a background of Ashinoko Lake, you can enjoy walking around in the garden with the seasonal flowers for free.
At a garden terrace of Karakoro Kobo, Enishizuku Umbrella Sky is a display for tourism promotion by Matsue Tourism Association. There're many colorful umbrellas hung from the ceiling 4 meters high in the rainy season.
As a famous dating-spot to see the night view of Kyoto, Shogun-zuka Mound City Observatory commands the whole view of the city including Kyoto Tower. What's more, you can experience the special visiting at nearby Seiryuden Temple in spring and autumn when you've time.
Ohara Sanzen-in Temple has two Japanese gardens, Shuheki-en with beautiful fresh greens, and Yusei-en with six lovely child Jizo images. You can enjoy walking leisurely, and let's find them!
