Hokkaido in Green Season Is One of the Best Views in Japan

It's so pretty we can almost touch it.

Every year, the Japanese showcase just how important nature and the environment is to their country. It shows through their segregation processes, the way they innovate facilities to maintain a clean environment, and most especially, through the thriving nature across Japan. In Hokkaido, for instance, flower fields bloom throughout the year before winter time. They call this the Green Season, and lucky for us, Japan has dedicated parks for visitors to admire all the seasonal flowers. 

Shikisai No Oka is a popular park to admire panoramic views of flower gardens across 15 hectares of land. It’s situated on a hill called Biei; the location makes this paradise of seasonal blossoms seem to appear in waves brought about by the natural contour of the hill. From September to October, the flowers in bloom are pansies, snapdragon sonnets, California poppies, sunflowers, kokias, and many more. Here’s the view in photos:

Aside from flower fields, this park features a farm and alpaca ranch. It’s the perfect attraction for families with kids or a group of friends that’s raring to get those Insta-worthy photos while being one with nature. You can book buggies, carts, and even tractor buses to go around the whole premises. The Shikisai No Oka park is open from 8.30am to 6pm from June to September, and 9am to 5pm in October.
