A Flower Garden with 550 Types of Dahlias
At Sera kogen farm, the autumn dahlia festival is held every year from the start of September to late October. 550 types of Dahlias are planted in the Dahlia flower garden spanning 15,000㎡, and visitors can enjoy the Dahlias of various shapes and sizes.
I visited right after the dahlia festival began. Dahlias are thought to be their most splendid in mid-September, so there were many that were still budding.
There are also some dahlias of new breeds that have not even been named. Name suggestions are accepted, so it would also be good to look at them in person and make some name suggestions.
There are truly many kinds of dahlias, from traditional-looking ones resembling chrysanthemums to large and flamboyant ones. At the flower picking field, visitors can pick a flower that they like for ￥200.
Furthermore, from 6th to 8th October, 2018, flower art, depicted by about 8,000 dahlias, will be displayed. It is a perfect spot if you are aiming for a photogenic shot, so please enjoy viewing it and taking commemorative photographs.
If you are visiting Sera kogen farm, how about enjoying gourmet food and experience events as well? I recommend the popular Sera burger, with 800 sold in a day!
This burger, which won an award in the national local burger grand prix, is made using a generous amount of locally-produced ingredients, including Sera kogen pork. It is packed with volume and incredibly juicy, so please give it a try.
The “Flower Cafe” is also holding a pressed flower strap making workshop. How about making your memories tangible?
Double Entry Ticket for the Dahlia Festival & Autumn Rose Festa
If you visit Sera kogen farm in late September, the “Dahlia Festival & Autumn Rose Festa Double Entry Ticket” is a great bargain. From September 22nd, Sera Kogen Flower Forest, which is beside Sera kogen farm, is holding the “Autumn Rose Festa.”
It is a wonderful event where, other than dahlias, there is a beautiful rose garden and many experiential programs such as workshops have been organized, so how about going around the two flower gardens? Sera kogen farm and Sera kogen Flower Forest each cost ￥800 to enter.
On the other hand, the “Dahlia Festival & Autumn Rose Festa Double Entry Ticket” costs ￥1,300 (￥650 for children) to enter both gardens, and is highly recommended.

Guests may use public transportation all the way inside Sera-cho. However, to reach Sera Kogen Park, guests need to use shuttle buses, taxis (15-20 mins), and rental cars. There are also “Sera Kogen Flower Touring Bus” available for a limited time.
