Last year, it was held for about a month and attracted 230,000 visitors.
Due to changes in planting methods and the effects of a warm winter, this year’s nemophila are growing larger than usual, and it is expected that they will be in full bloom by April 6th (Saturday), the opening day. This is an event where you can enjoy Nemophila in full bloom from the opening day, so please come early.

What is nemophila?
[Image 11:×200.png ]
Nemophila is an annual plant native to North America, whose Japanese name is Rurikarakusa, and it blooms with beautiful flowers that look like the blue sky. The plant is about 20 cm tall, finely branched, and spreads horizontally, producing beautiful flowers that resemble the blue sky. The blue landscape of Nemophila blooming as if connected to the sky and the sea has become a hot topic on social media, especially among young people, as it looks photogenic and Instagrammable. Collaboration zone of seasonal flowers and nemophila
At the beginning of the event, we will set up a collaboration zone with nemophila and cherry blossoms and tulips, which are at their best in spring. You can enjoy a completely different scenery from the blue nemophila fields.
