The summer blooms of Biei

Biei’s location amongst beautiful rolling countryside make it ideal for exploration on foot or by bike. The surrounding countryside is especially alluring during the summer months when many varieties of flowers are in full bloom transforming the area with a patchwork of dramatic splashes of colour. A wide range of flowers are grown in this region including irises, spider flowers, sunflowers, and Japanese roses, but the area is best known for its lavender fields. These are usually in full bloom in July when driving or cycling around the countryside feels more like Provence than Japan.
