A four-meter high “Sunflower Tower,” stacked full of beautiful sunflowers, is open for a limited period from around mid-August.
The “Specimen Garden” has unusual varieties, some easily over two-meters tall and others that are red. Come see types of sunflowers you have never seen before!
The “999 Flower Words” garden, a new area added just this year, focuses upon the fact that different numbers of sunflowers are said to symbolize different things. 999 sunflowers, the largest number assigned a “flower word” with symbolic meaning, is said to convey the message: “no matter how many times I am reborn, I will always love you!” Come visit the many photo spots set up to correspond with this and other symbolic “flower words.”♪
The “Furin Painting Experience” is available throughout the festival. A furin is a small Japanese wind-chime that is a quintessential part of Japanese summers. Why not come paint your own furin as a wonderful memory of summer, or as a perfect gift?!
The corn grown in the fields at Sera Kogen Farm is harvested at 5am, which is the time of day when the ears of corn have their highest sugar content. The variety grown here is “Miel Corn”, which is a type that is amongst the most delicious around. Miel means “sweet like honey” in French, so it’s just like eating fruit! You can buy it direct from the shop, or enjoy grilled corn and other original dishes featuring lavish helpings of corn. Don’t miss this taste sensation!
Our newly completed “Farm Grill” area combines the shop and refreshment zones as a space to enjoy the original dishes on our menu. You can also take advantage of the “Forest Deck” area to sit back, relax, and enjoy a view of the flowers.
A stroll through the field of flowers should take around 1.5 to 2 hours. The farm is dotted with shade and benches, so take your time to enjoy the fragrance of summer flowers wafting through the fields. Feel free to talk to our friendly staff who will be on hand to help you take the perfect photo as well.
