Awaji Island has long been revered as a "power spot" by Japanese people. Surrounded by the ocean, it is also known as a place to enjoy the fresh bounty of the sea. It can be accessed from Kobe, the center of Hyogo Prefecture, by rental car or express bus. Today, I'll introduce Hanasajiki, a flower field located in the northern part of Awaji Island,(facing Kobe).

Awaji Hanasajiki is a park on a wide plain facing the ocean, where very pretty flowers proudly bloom in the flower fields.

Speaking of Japanese flowers, many people have the image of spring's cherry blossoms. In fact, sunflowers bloom in summer, salvias in fall, and stock in winter. Every season features its own beautiful flowers!

When I visited this park, so many cute flowers welcomed me, too!

Incomparable with the center of the city, the air is fresh and clean, allowing you to relax as you walk around!

Far in the distance, the ocean and mountains stretch out before you. Nature is such a wonderful thing!

Without a doubt, families and couples can have fun here, where the beauty of Japan's flowers can be appreciated!
