1. Nanko Sunflower Field (Hyogo): An entire scene buried in yellow!

Located in the town of Sayo on the western edge of Hyogo Prefecture, the Nanko Sunflower Field can be found between 2-6 kilometers on foot from Harima-Tokusa Station, which is reachable from JR Himeji Station.
Between mid-July to early August, several sunflower fields planted in succession will bloom and paint the town in enchanting shades of yellow.
Each year, the local farmers diligently cultivate their collection of sunflowers, which take about 60 days to grow large to bloom from mid-July successively.
For 2022's iteration, there are plans to grow roughly 690,000 sunflowers across four districts, which will bloom during the Himawari Festival between July 16 and July 31.
