The onsen district from mid-June to early October is filled with flowers!

“Sounkyo Onsen Hana Monogatari (flower stories)”. The name indicated the activity in the onsen district which plants approximately 4,000 flowers every year. Flowers such as geraniums, salvia, and petunia bloom vivid flowers and last for long because of cool weather in the intermountain area.
