Flower Festival in Mashiko

Sunflower and Cosmos Open Garden in summer and autumn

Venue: Mashiko When: Mid Aug 2022

There is always something to look forward to during summer and autumn in Mashiko. The annual Sunflower and Cosmos Festival is held at the outskirts of Mashiko Town every second week of August for sunflowers and every second week of October for cosmos.

The fields are about 10 hectares in size for the sunflowers and 13 hectares for the cosmos. Big! It's a stress reliever for nature lovers and photograph enthusiasts. Entrance and parking is free. And you can pick some flowers from the fields and take them home for free too.

I live in rural Japan, mother of 3 and I worked part-time online. I love travelling because it opens up new experiences and learning opportunities.
