Flowers on Kasaoka Bay Reclaimed Land
The best part is the flower gardens stretching as far as the eye can see. You can enjoy the wonderful scenery throughout all four seasons.
Work on the reclaimed land around Kasaoka Bay lasted 24 years and was completed in 1990. In August 2011, the Kasaoka Bay Farm Roadside Station was created on the reclaimed land. In time with its opening, 1 million sunflowers appeared basking in the sunlight. The best time to view them is in early August. The view from an observation point is spectacular. In October, 30 million cosmoses come into full bloom on the 3 ha farmland. Ten million canola blossoms are at their peak from mid-March to early April, turning the entire area into a yellow carpet. Poppies are in full bloom around the end of April.
