Ogaki Sunflower Field大垣のひまわり畑
Take the Meihan Kintetsu Bus Hashima Line from Ogaki Station on the JR Tokaido Main Line, get off at the Sugue bus stop, and walk eight minutes. A 2.7 hectare, formerly fallow field planted with some 120 thousand sunflowers. The best time to view the flowers is from mid-August to early September. Sunflowers are planted here at two different times each year, ensuring visitors can enjoy viewing the flowers for an extended period of time. During the Sunflower Festival, the flowers are also lit up at night. An elevated rail line used by the Tokaido Shinkansen is located nearby, and if you are very lucky, you just might get to see a rare “Doctor Yellow” Shinkansen train jetting by decked out in a yellow livery similar to the sunflowers.
