Partners Information: Join a 1-day flower viewing and seafood lunch tour from Osaka from H.I.S.
Located in Takashima City of Shiga Prefecture, Hakodateyama Lily Garden in summer is home to about 2.5 million lily flowers and 2,000 Kochia shrubs. It takes about 8 mins by gondola to reach the wide expanse of flower fields; while riding the gondola, admire the views of the serene Lake Biwa Lake and vast green land along the lake.
There are several options to admire this season’s glamorous lilies. You can either choose the skywalk lift and feel the fresh breeze when watching the blossoms, or ride the “Sky Lilly Train” to go through the blooming lilies and enjoy the colorfully alluring flower shrubs!
