Hokkaido Summer 2012 北海道夏季之旅 - Hill of Zerubu ぜるぶの丘

Visited 12.07.2012

Third flower park of the day. 
As we had some time left, our taxi driver proposed this other flower park as the final stop of our sightseeing day trip. Hill of Zerubu has been a well-known flower park in Biei, and is also the park nearest to the train station.

Highlights: A large garden where flowers are planted in a circular fashion - an exclusive feature of this park. A large variety of flowers are planted in this garden during the summer season. Apart from lavender, lilies and roses were spotted in this area, which I have not seen or missed out in other flower parks earlier in the day. What attracted me most was this amazing plot of land dedicated to sunflowers - an extremely beautiful sight that is beyond words to describe.

A great way to end our day trip in Biei!
