There is a small museum along the Echizen coast in Fukui, that has the daffodils blooming out of season. They use temperature control to achieve this. There is also a popular tourist spot nearby where the daffodils bloom in season.

The first time I saw winter-blooming narcissus I was suprised. THe climate here is different from my home country, and the narcissus are super hardy, too, making it through light frosts.

3 million - that would be a sight to see. There is a place in Saitama too, that has a festival in January. Last year I didn't make it, hopefully this year!

They are one of the flowers that actually thrive during winter! December/January are the best time for them!
