~ Healing and Excitement A Yellow carpet spreading all over ~
The Sunflower Festival at two venues held every year in late July and mid-August.
The city flower "Himawari" which began as measures against the devastation of idle farmland in 1995 is blooming in each venue, about 100 thousand in Kurihara venue and about 450 thousands "Sunflowers" in Zama venue can be enjoyed.
Please see "Zama Sunflowers (Himawari)" expanding all over for summer memories.
Also, if you walk around and get tired, at the refreshment booth "Zamarin Square", you will find Yakisoba and Kakigori (Japanese shaved ice) stands, and take a break and quench your throat with sunflower cider.
The observation deck is also set up at each venue and it is recommended for taking pictures as you can view the sunflower field.
The scenery of sunflowers spreading across as far as you can see is masterpiece!

If you like sunflower, this farm is definitely an interesting place to look during obon vacation. They offer shuttle bus from train station, so it's not so bad to get to. Just note that, it's very HOT.

There are a lot of sunflower, bigger than the venue in Kurihara. The access of from the nearest station is not really good though, we have to walk about 2 kms or take the bus (but only halfway, and available once in an hour)

例年、ひまわりが見頃の時期に開催される『座間市ひまわりまつり』は首都圏でも有数の規模を誇る地元のイベントです。

1969年に座間市の市花に制定されたひまわりですが、1993年から遊休農地の荒廃対策の一環として座間市の花『ひまわり』の景観植栽を始め、公開したことがきっかけとなり、1994年には『かながわの花の名所100選』にも選ばれ、今では関東でも有名な約55万本のひまわりが咲き誇るイベントに成長しました。敷地一面を埋め尽くすひまわりの姿は本当に圧巻で、県外からも多くの人が訪れます。

ひまわりの開花に合わせて毎年お盆前後に開催されるひまわりまつりの会場には、撮影用の展望台やひまわりの迷路、会場のひまわりの切り花販売や模擬店、農作物や特産品の販売、アユつかみ取りイベントなども行っています。

昨年までは2つの会場で開催されてましたが、2019年からは『座間会場』のみ、会場が1つになってもひまわりの本数は維持してますので、約55万本のひまわりを変わらず楽しむことが出来ます。詳しくは、公式ホームページでの確認下さい。

『ひまわりまつり』開催中は普段は、臨時駐車場が相模川グランド設置されるのですが、お昼過ぎから駐車待ちで凄い渋滞になります。お勧めの時間帯は朝~昼の11時くらいまでが目安、それ以降は夕方が狙い目、駐車場を利用する時には500円の協力金が必要です。

見事に咲き誇る約55万本のひまわり畑、一度は訪れる価値があると思います。
