It’s Azumayama Park in Kanagawa Prefecture, and now is the best season for visiting the canola flower fields. It’s usually crowded with families on the weekends. The park is located in the upland, so you can get a 360-degree view of the mountains of Hakone, glorious Mt. Fuji, and even the Pacific Ocean. The park is covered in grass that feels so spacious and relaxing.
The park was made for people to relax.
Mt. Azuma used to be admired by local people as a mountain with good scenery, but it was in ruins after World War II because nobody could maintain it. However, about 30 years ago the local people started feeling sad about it and began it’s restoration, taking over 5 years to create what became Azumayama Park today. Canola flowers have been cultivated for about 10 years now and the amazing flower fields became famous. Local people love to take walks in this park.
If you are planning to go to Hakone’s hot spring, please drop by a canola flower field here. Say hi to the local people in the park and it will brighten up your trip to Hakone.
