    In spring the hill is covered in rapeseed blossoms and in summer roughly 420,000 sunflowers bloom.

Kurikoma between 669 and 707 meters above sea level is a treasure trove of alpine plants. Sekaiyachi means ""vast wetland."" There are wooden walkways in the area, and from May to September, visitors can encounter Enkianthus campanulatus, Japanese azaleas, hare's-tail cottongrass, and a variety of other alpine plants. The area is particularly famous nationwide for its large patch of Nikko day lilies which color the wetlands orange with their blossoms.

Lying along the northeastern coast of Japan, Miyagi prefecture is home to lashings of natural parks, oysters, and hot springs. While the bustling city of Sendai offers some simple city entertainment, it’s the Matsushima islands that deserve the most attention, having boosted the prefecture’s reputation as one of Japan’s most scenic views.
