Sunflowers in Oshino Village
©AFLO, Iwao Kataoka
While cherry blossoms, buckwheat, and cosmos flowers bloom throughout the year and are wonderful to see, sunflowers are a summer tradition in Oshino Village. Because they have varieties that bloom both early and late in the season, you can enjoy them as late as September.

Mid-August to early September
Amidst the late-blooming sunflower fields, on a clear day one can enjoy a glorious view of Mt. Fuji. Because the sunflowers are more than two meters tall (!), you need to be clever to find the perfect angle for photos.
