Sunflower Festival


             \ Hello ! Are you enjoying the summer ?  /

I found a flower with smiley face:)
Hi. This is Ena from Hiroshima Hana Hostel.
Last week, i went to Sera town 
which is in northern part of Hiroshima prefecture with my friends.

We went to the Sunflower Festival of Sera Kogen Farm.
Since Sunflowers are my favorite flower, I really enjoyed it !
They had About 50 species 1.1 million sunflowers !!
 It is one of the biggest sunflower fields in Japan.


Unfortunately, the last day of the festival was on Aug 21st.
However, you can enjoy Dahlia flowers next  from September 10, 2016 (Sat).
I also found some Dahlia flowers at sunflowers field. 
They were still small but beautiful!
I would like to go there for the Dahlia festival as well..!
