    Kagawa Nakatado-gun Manno Cho Honoyama
    Manno Town, located on the border of Tokushima and Kagawa prefectures, is known as the home of sunflowers. Scattered around the district, are about 1,200,000 sunflowers on approximately 22 hectares. The best time to visit this district is from early to mid-July when patches of sunflowers brighten the landscape everywhere you look. These bright yellow patches of sunflowers, which bloom all at once, are like carpets of yellow absorbing the warm rays of the sun. The townspeople, wanting to share the beauty of the area, hold a sunflower festival in mid-July every year. During this annual summer event, many visitors from near and far come to enjoy strolling through the flower fields, attend the music festival, the bazaars, or participate in the photography contest.

Kagawa Areas

around-area-map

Japan's smallest prefecture, Kagawa, may take up just a small corner of Shikoku, but it has grown increasingly popular with the recognition of Naoshima, its "art island" in the Seto Inland Sea between Shikoku and Honshu. Just a stone's throw from the islands, mainland Kagawa's prefectural capital, Takamatsu, holds history in its castle ruins and its pride and joy, Ritsurin Garden, is known as one of the country's best gardens.
