Kiyose Sunflower Festival 2017

20% of Kiyose City’s land area remains agricultural which makes it a great producer of crops such as wheat, cucumber, eggplant, spinach, carrots, and more. But every year, about 100,000 sunflowers are planted on a 2.4 hectares land which creates a  brilliant yellow field under the dazzling summer sun.

Vast field of radiant yellow sunflowers.

Visitors are welcome to visit the site for free and adore the gorgeous sunflowers and indeed an excellent venue for photography enthusiasts.

Photographers can’t get enough of the lovely flowers.

Various insects are also loving the alluring sunflowers.
