#Attraction ,#Kids ,#Nature ,#Park&Garden ,#Photogenic

Sera Kogen Farm is a farm with a vast amount of land, and many events are held there throughout the year. It is especially popular with families, and bustles with people during periods with consecutive holidays.

Many kinds of beautiful flowers bloom across the fields and hills, so it’s perfect for picture taking! In this article, I will talk about how you can enjoy the seasons at Sera Kogen Farm.

Make The Most Of The Four Seasons

Sera Kogen Farm is a sightseeing farm in Sera-gun in Sera-cho. The symbol of this farm is its retro, handmade windmill, built in 1994.

The farm’s main attractions include its 700 thousand tulips of 300 different types that bloom across a six hectare hill, as well as its 11 million sunflowers that bloom in summer. You can also enjoy food made with fresh ingredients at the cafe and restaurant.

Shops Inside the Farm

Inside the farm there are flower shop, farm restaurant, and flower cafe. Food ingredients and accessories are sold at the shop. In summer, there are also workshops, in which you can try painting wind chimes.

You can enjoy a light meal at the restaurant, or even have a BBQ on its terrace! It’s quite luxurious. You can make fun memories with someone special while surrounded by nature at this farm.
