The flower meadows at Himawari no Oka Park (Sunflower Hill Park), change appearance with each season, from rape blossoms in spring to sunflowers - the city’s official floral emblem - in summer, and cosmos in the fall.
The best time to see the sunflowers is from late June through early July. The cosmos are at their peak in early to mid-November.
Sunflower Tower, the symbol of the park, is easily visible from the national road. Park features include beds of seasonal flowers, an expansive lawn, Pirate Ship Panic World (huge adventure playground), kiosk and restaurant.
