Hokkaido’s Magical Flower Fields Will Take You to Another World

Spring is definitely the best time to start traveling, as nature awakens from its wintry spell. It’s a well know fact that this is also a perfect time to visit Japan – a country famous for its enchanting natural beauty and cherry blossoms. If you happen to find yourself in the land of the rising sun, make sure to visit Hokkaido – Japan’s northernmost main island.

Hokkaido is famous for its colorful flower fields that last almost all year round. One of the most beautiful and colorful is Shikisai no Oka, or Shikisai Hill. It spreads out on 15 acres and is tucked in between Mount Tokashi and the plains of Takikawa.


There is no better place on Earth for all those who love nature and flowers. Captivating panoramic view of gardens packed with colorful flowers will inspire any art and photography enthusiast. Endless yellow rows of sunflowers blend perfectly with soft purple lines of lavender. But planting arrangement changes every year and visitors never know what kind of visual feast to expect. One thing is sure – no one leaves disappointed.
