Every year over 500,000 cosmos burst into colour at Chiba Prefecture’s Sakura Furusato Square on the shore of lake Inba-numa. Because the event is known to draw in large crowds of people it was decided that it was best to cancel it during 2020 in order to help curb the spread of COVID-19.
But with the State of Emergency lifted, the event is once again being held, and for the first time in two years, fields of colour are stretching out from the foot of the Dutch windmill located in the centre of the park.
The event is being held whilst the cosmos are still in full bloom, and will end on the 24th of October after which the park will begin to make preparations for next spring’s Tulip Festival.
During the Festival, visitors can participate in digging up cosmos flowers from the root, which can then be brought home. Additionally, the onsite kitchen car will be selling season-limited foods and drinks to enjoy at the park.
