Daidohara Flower Fields
Daidohara flower fields come into bloom at the beginning of May each year. The fields are canola (rapeseed) flowers.
While canola fields can be seen in many places, what makes Daidohara so special is the location and the amazing photos you can take at this spot. Daidohara is a popular spot for many photographers and some of the images of the area are spectacular. Mt Myoko poses majestically in the background and if you can get a blue sky day then you can easily get a photo worthy of any postcard or poster.
You will need transport to reach the area. The spot is easy to find and is just 5 minutes off of the R18 main road that runs towards Joetsu. You will need to turn left at the cross roads junction when you see Tomato Farmers Market.
