Kamu no Sato Rokutan Park: Splendid Views Recommended for Golden Week!

 

Located in Sera, Hiroshima prefecture, Kamu no Sato Rokutan Park is brimming with moss phlox.
In spring, 800 thousand moss phlox flowers bloom vividly on a hill stretching over 50 thousand square meters.

 

 

There is a superb view from the viewing platform!
The hill has been used as a canvas where patterns and pictures are painted in 4 different colors of moss phlox.

Moss Flox:
Moss phlox originates in North America. Resembling cherry blossoms, they grow densely and cover the whole ground. (In Japanese they are called shibazakura – ‘sakura’ = cherry blossom).

 

There are pathways all around the park from where you can enjoy panoramic views of the vast fields of moss phlox. The green mountain seen on the right is the 535-meter Mt. Kurokawa-Myojin – it’s like a symbol of the Sera plateau.

In addition, there is also a nearly 30 thousand square meter field of rape blossoms. The best time to see these is roughly at the same times as the moss phlox, around the Japanese Golden Week.

 

You can also find tulip fields and lily gardens here and there on the Sera plateau. The area is a popular sightseeing spot. The best season to see all the flowers is around Golden Week in May.
