【The flower fields in Japan】The vast poppy fields in Konosu, Saitama

Konosu city is located in the middle of Saitama, and the city is famous for Hina dolls and beautiful flowers.

In spring, brilliant red, pink and yellow poppies bloom and the scenery is so gorgeous.
There are two sites where you can see beautiful poppies.The first one is the Mamuro site and the other one is the Fukiage site.
Poppy fields in the Mamuro site are the largest poppy fields in Japan and the size is 12.5 ha. It means this poppy fields are over two times bigger than the Tokyo dome. It is good to go to the poppy fields with your partner, your family, even your dogs!

When I went to the poppy fields, I noticed some people looking at the fields while riding a jinriki sha. It is an unfogettable, special experience in Japan!

The middle of May is the best time to visit!

Poppies in Konosu usually start blooming around the middle of May. The festivals take place at the Mamuro and the Fukiage sites. There are not so many people on weekdays compared to weekends, I strongly recommend visiting the poppy fields on the weekdays in May.

※The festival takes place at different dates on the Mamuro and Fukiage sites. For more details please  check Konosu city website.
