2016 Nabana No Sato Flower Festival in Kuwana, Japan
Saturday, July 23, 2016
Nabana No Sato is part of Nagashima Resort located in Kuwana city, Mie prefecture in Japan. It is one of the many places in the Tokai region for leisure time. Nabano No Sato is a flower park where a bunch of flora are in full bloom depending on the season. The mother is here for vacation that time and since this is my first time here on an April month, I was excited to visit the place and this time, they are featuring different blooms of tulips. My favorite flower! From colors to sizes, in awe upon seeing those. Reminiscing that time while typing this post now.
By the way, they also have a begonia garden inside a greenhouse where you can see different types, colors, sizes of begonia flower. The mother, as a flower enthusiast/admirer, she was so happy upon seeing those and took a lot of pictures with and without her on the photo. Seeing her how happy she was makes me happy also.
How about if I have a hair like this?
And in the end of the park, there lies the wide garden of tulips of different colors, from white to red to pink to devil red. I almost forgot I am in Japan, thinking I am in Holland, home of those tulips. How I wish I can go there soon to see real Holland tulips.
Since it was the time for the world youth summit that was held in Ise island in Mie prefecture, there was a field with the joining countries decorated in tulips. How creative, right? By the way, for 2,100Jpy, you can enjoy the flower festival on the day and watch the winter illumination during the night. I will save the latter in the next post. Better watch out for it!
