The rapeseed flowers around “Heartland Myoko” in Daidohara, Sekiyama, Myoko City, Niigata Prefecture are in full bloom.
The rapeseed field in Daidohara covers an area of about 2 hectares and is located at the foot of Mt. Myoko, one of Japan’s 100 famous mountains. It is reclaimed abandoned farmland, which is no longer cultivated by the locals, and it has been transformed into a field of flowers for sightseeing.
The annual festival was canceled to prevent the spread of the new coronavirus, but the blossoms are still in full bloom this year.
The best time to see the blossoms is for about two more weeks. Please enjoy the video of both the rapeseed blossoms and the remaining snow on Mt. Myoko.
* The facility will be closed until May 31 to prevent the spread of new coronavirus infection.
