"Nagai Uminote Park Soleil Hill" (or Le Soleil) is located on the west coast of the Miura Peninsula in Yokosuka City, Kanagawa Pref. This is a 24.6 hectare park, 5.2 times the size of the Tokyo Dome, with the theme of a "comprehensive experience park for the agriculture and sea of the Miura Peninsula.
Visitors can experience harvesting seasonal vegetables grown in the park, baking and crafting bread, interacting with animals, and playing in the facilities such as go-karts and a grass sledding slope.
In the summer season, the 5,000-meter-long flower garden at the entrance of the park, located on a hill that juts out from Sagami Bay, is covered with approximately 100,000 sunflowers and offers a beautiful view of Mount Fuji and the ocean.
The contrast between the blue of the sea and the yellow of the sunflowers is really photogenic! And the terra-cotta and brick buildings in the park create an atmosphere like Provence in the south of France.
During this period, original sunflower-inspired food and drinks will be available for purchase.
More than 130,000 people visit the park every year.

It's a an a la carte amusement park. You pay for parking but admission is technically free. There are also two free playgrounds and a swim area. The petting zoo, slides, ferris wheel, paddle boat and other fun attractions are all pay by kids which gets pricy quick for our 3 kid family.

Can get really crowded on the weekends, but during the week the place is completely deserted. Very nice grounds with lots of activities for small kids. Parking is 1000 yen for the entire day.

Amazing area! So much to do .. even has camping on site but if you can't read Japanese it will be hard to figure out what prices are for when trying to use campsite. They do have English brochure for the park but not for camping area. Other then that we loved it there and are trying to figure out how to get a campsite. 😊

I went there to hunt Fuji mountain picture with canola (haruhana) background, but unfortunately, it was too cloudy.
However the canola field and small perfect garden were awesome so it was worth the trip.
There is no entrance fee but you have to pay for an amusement park, baking lesson, petting zoo etc. The area is pretty big so the earlier you reach this place the merrier. The shuttle bus is only operated until 4.13 pm on weekdays, but if you are late (the park close at 6 pm) you can catch the local bus from the port bus stop, approximately 10 minutes walking.
