Osaki city located in the northern part of Miyagi Prefecture, the Sanbongi area has a sunflower hill known for its rape blossoms in spring and sunflowers blooming all over like a sun rising in the summer, familiar to locals. "Osaki City Sanbongi Himawari no Oka" Currently about 420,000 trees are planted in a vast area of 6 hectares, and in summer one side is orange colored. It is said that it is the second largest after the sunflower field in Hokkaido Kitaurui-cho, Japan, the sight is exceptional. Since the hill of the Sanbongi Sunflower Festival is a sloping ground, you can enjoy "sunflower field as far as you can see". It looks as pretty as a postcard.

"Sunflower Festival" is held every year in August. At the festival venue, oils and cookies using sunflower seeds are also sold, but among them the top recommendation is "Himawari Aisuchan". It is an Ice-cream that I have sunflower seeds kneaded in, it is only available to eat at this event venue and the nearby road stations. It has a very nice aroma and is pretty tasty.

The venue time is from 9 o'clock to 17 o'clock. The entrance fee is free, and the parking lot is 300 yen per car as operating expenses. Parking fee will be charged, but if you use the parking lot you will get sunflower seeds. Also, if you bring the parking ticket to the light snack corner of "Road Station Sanbongi Yamanami", you can earn a cup of coffee with a free service, which is advantageous.

Incidentally, there is also Rape Flower Festival, the period of holding will be held from 9 am to 5 pm, from April 20(Saturday) to May 6 th (Monday) in 2019.

Get off at JR Tohoku Shinkansen / Furukawa station and get on the Miyako bus bound for Sanbongi Otonashi (about 30 minutes). Sunflower field is waiting for you at about 10 minutes on foot after getting off at the stop.

After having enjoyed rape flowers and sunflowers on the hill of Sanbongi Sunflower, we recommend a day-trip hot spring facility "Himawari Onsen (hot spring) Hanaori-no-yu" located 5 minutes by car from the Sanbongi Sunflower Hill. This is famous for the"hot spring springing from the lignite layer" which is rare in the world. In this area, there is a history that once flourished as the most thrifty lignite lump in Japan.

I've never been during the festival but it's cheaper to go before 9 and after 5 or 6. The sunflowers are beautiful!

向日葵が好きだったこともあり、広告で知って、自宅から遠かったのですが行きました。もっと沢山の向日葵が咲いて見事な状態を想像していたので、現地に着いた時は小振りな向日葵ばかりだし、咲いてない所もありで、少し時期が悪かったのかと残念に思いましたが、近くで見ると素晴らしかったです!向日葵のトンネル状態の小道を歩きながら、来て良かったかな、と思えました。また、行きたいと思います。

5月10日に行ったら一面『菜の花の丘』のひまわりの丘でした😊 香り立つ春爛漫の菜の花の薫りをお届け出来ないのが残念ですが、春の陽気につられて自転車で流してたら風下だと1キロ手前からでも芳しい菜の花の香りがわかるほど‼️

思わず4号線を走ってたら目の前に現れた『ひまわりの丘』の案内板と、遠くに見える黄色い絨毯と芳しい菜の花の香りに誘われてコース変更してしまいましたがw

遠くに残雪を残した船形山の山並みと、一面、陽の光に照らされ鮮やかに輝いた黄色と茎や周りの草木の緑と真っ青な青空のコントラストは見事です。

7月27日からひまわりまつり開催中らしいですが、27日現在、一本も咲いていません。自然の事なので仕方ないとは思いますが、何らかの形で公示して欲しかったです。ちなみに、自転車で5時間かけて行きました。
