Shiramazu Flower Fields
DO: There are many flower fields in Minamiboso, but these particular fields in Chikura are located right across from the beach, creating a beautiful blue backdrop for the colorful flowers of early spring. Flower picking is available for extremely cheap, with an abundance of poppies, stock, rapeseed blossoms, and more at each site. Just check in at a stand, borrow a pair of clippers and a tray, and start clipping. Check back in to have the owner ring you up for however many flowers you may choose to take home. The area is perfect for photos too, so be sure to bring a camera! Meanwhile, the parking area houses many shops with planters and fruits, including one that also sells pot marigold ice cream!
HOURS: Varies between stands, about 8:30am to sundown
WHEN: from early January to late March
FEE: Pay per cut stem. Prices vary between stands and type of flower, usually around 50 yen a stem
WHERE: (parking) Minamiboso City, Chikura-cho Shiramazu 1397
