I loved visited Sannokura Highlands in Kitakata City last month. I have always wanted to visit the sunflower fields there, and I managed to time my visit perfectly!
The sunflower fields are home to over 1.5 million sunflowers! They’re located at a height of 650 m above sea level, meaning it was really nice and cool at the fields, despite the summer heat.
Sannokura Highlands is actually transformed into a ski area during the winter!
Here are a few photos from my trip.
When to Visit:
For sunflowers, visit in mid-August.
For rapeseed blossom, visit from mid-May to early June.
It’s kind of difficult to get here by public transport. I recommend coming by car. If the main car park is full you can park and take a shuttle bus to the top.
