KOCHIA HILL
Ibaraki

Each spring the 350 hectare field in Miharashi Park is filled with 32,000 kochia balls, which turn red by autumn. For a memorable shot, take an pic with these tiny pom poms behind you.

SAGANO BAMBOO FOREST
Kyoto

If you want to embrace the latest trend called forest bathing, this is the place to do it. Not only is it visually delightful, but the rustling of the bamboo leaves is so relaxing, the Ministry of the Environment placed it in its top 100 Soundscapes of Japan.



HIGASHIMOKOTO SHIBAZAKURA PARK 
Abashiri

During the month of May you should visit Shibazakura Park to spy this sea of pink, white and blue and phloxes.



KAWACHI FUJI GARDENS’ WISTERIA TUNNEL 
Kitakyushu

This fairy-tale tunnel is at its best during the end of April and the beginning of May. It becomes so busy that you have to purchase tickets in advance to claim your perfect moment in the tunnel.
