Each year in autumn, Miyazaki Prefecture's Ikoma Plateau is filled with millions (no exaggeration!) of colorful cosmos flowers in a variety of different types. Along with the spectacular display of beauty to enjoy, the plateau also affords some incredible views out over the Kirishima Mountain Range and Kobayashi City.
As is the case with any flower festival, the dates can fluctuate slightly depending on exactly when the flowers bloom. Basing the dates from previous years, plan for around mid-September through until the end of October.
Adult admission to the event is priced at 600 yen.
