Soleil Hill Nanohana Festival

Fields full of yellow in Kanagawa

Venue: Nagai Uminote Park Soleil Hill When: Dec 22nd - Mar 29th 2024

From mid December until late February, Yokosuka Soleil Hill will host their annual nanohana festival, dedicated to what some people may know as bright yellow rapeseed flowers. The nanohana plants here are cultivated in a way that makes them bloom sequentially over a period of approximately 100 days, giving visitors a substantial window to enjoy their colorful charm. On clear days, the venue even offers a view of Mount Fuji, adding to the beauty.

Along with the flowers to appreciate, the event will include dishes incorporating nanohana at the on-site Restaurant Provence, and experience-based classes such as making melon pan adorned with nanohana motifs.

Admission to the event is free of charge.

Every spring I prepare a generous bunch of nanohana with dashi broth and soy sauce. They're sharp and sassy.

Yum! One of the menu items for this event is meant to be pasta with peperoncino and nanohana!
