Nabana no Sato (Flower Garden) 花と緑と食のテーマパーク「なばなの里」Nabana no Sato

One of the largest in Japan! Both the illumination and the flower garden are overwhelming!

At "Nabana-no-Sato", you can see various flowers and trees through the four seasons. The seasonal events which can be enjoyed from spring to winter are popular.

The spring time flower festival is held from March to early July, and there are many flowers such as plum, Kawazu cherry blossoms, weeping cherry blossoms, daffodils, tulips, roses, hydrangea and irises.
In particular, the tulip garden is one of the largest in Japan!

In winter, one of the largest illuminations in Japan is held (mid November - early March).
The scale and the quality are the world's top class.
The place was chosen by Tripadvisor as the "Popular Sightseeing Spot for Foreigners in 2017".

Within the premises, you can also enjoy natural hot spring in an outdoor bath on a day trip basis at "Sato-no-Yu" hot spring.
There is also the "Nagashima Beer Garden" where you can drink freshly brewed local beer.
