Four Select Photogenic Sunflower Fields around Tokyo to Post on Instagram!

Sunflowers are representative of summer. The site of tens of thousands of yellow sunflowers blooming below a blue sky is sure to make your heart flutter. This time, we introduce four spots with fabulous views where you can enjoy a landscape full of blooming sunflowers.

Sunflower Garden with Windmill and a Western Feel (Keisei Shiroi, Chiba)

This is a spacious park where seasonal flowers bloom from spring to fall. There is a Dutch windmill on the banks of Inba-numa Lake, around which approximately 20,000 sunflowers bloom in the summer. The park, with a windmill built by a Dutch technician using mechanical parts from Holland, has a Western feel.

During the sunflower season, pleasure boat rides are available and a market that sells regional produce is held. Free sunflower picking is scheduled around Saturday, July 22 and Sunday, July 23, so it would be a good time to visit.

Zama Sunflower Festival Held in Two Locations with Different Blooming Periods (Sobudaimae, Kanagawa)

Sunflowers have been grown in this area, which was unused agricultural land, since 1994. Now, visitors can see approximately 100,000 sunflowers in the Kurihara site and 450,000 in the Zama site. The sunflowers that brighten up the agricultural landscape paint the scenery yellow. There are events such as hand-catching Ayu sweetfish, at the Zama site, so check them out.

Enjoy Mazes and Sunflowers at the Sunflower Mazes (Namegawa, Chiba)

At Narita Yume Bokujo, sunflower mazes with a total of approximately 100,000 sunflowers open during the season. There are mazes created by the sunflowers that are taller than most people in seven locations during a period of about one month. The flowers bloom at different times so you can keep going back for more fun.

Enjoy Sunflowers at the Sunflower Field in a Flower Park (Nishi-Tachikawa, Tokyo)

This is a national park that is the size of approximately 39 Tokyo Domes, with a variety of facilities such as a pool and dog run. There is a sunflower field on the flower hill near the Sunagawa Gate where approximately 40,000 sunflowers bloom during the latter half of July. There are paths in the sunflower field so you can see the flowers up close.

Sunflower fields, with the contrasting colors of the flowers and the blue sky, offer opportunities to take fabulous photographs. Be sure to visit.
