Uminaka Flower Festival 2018 (Uminonakamichi Seaside Park)

East Area

Let’s enjoy autumn’s flower viewing!
The theme of this year is “The photogenic Japan and Flower”

At the flower hill, there are hands-on workshops, “Japanese culture experience” and the “photo spot” made by bamboo so you can enjoy together with the flower viewing. They are undoubtedly great spots for Instagram!


Chill out and walk around the cosmos field. Enjoy the season’s flowers

The park will be fully dyed in autumn’s color, as one side of the hill is covered in red, white and pink cosmos carpet, together with bright red kochia. A flower garden evoking the image of traditional Hakata-ori (textile) has been made mainly with mums of the Asteraceae family as well.

In late October, autumn roses with more vivid color and scent that lasts longer will be in full bloom.

During the period, a lot of events such as a festival for parents and children with the theme of “play” and “learn”, a petting zoo where people can come in contact with animals such as goats, mini-pigs, tortoises, and hands-on workshops where you can fully enjoy autumn – the season of sports, etc. will be held!

※Blooming timing may differ depending on seasons.
