The coolest idea this summer!! Sunflower maze at bee farm

August 9, 2020 @ 08:00 - August 25, 2020 @ 17:00

sunflower maze

Kumagaya is hot, hot, hot! But this is the coolest idea ever! A sunflower maze to put a smile on any face.

The sunflowers at Endo Farm are grown to attract the bees so that they can make honey. The very clever farmer came up with the idea a few years ago to make a maze among the sunflowers. There are about 1,000,000 sunflowers in wasteland that was cultivated. The farmer teasingly remarks “Be careful not to get lost!” But what a beautiful place to get lost!

Sunflower maze

The sunflowers grow in August to early September normally. However, the farm posted on August 24 to say that the sunflowers are near their end now.  In previous years when the weather permitted the maze was available from the end of August to early September. Please note that the maze is not at the farm’s sunflower field, but at the field by the former Kojima Elementary and middle School. Update August 8th:

Amazingly, this event is free. There are a couple of other mazes in cornfields in Saitama this time of year, but they all charge! In previous years, they’ve also had a yoga event among the sunflower. That is, naturally, a charged event.

They will provide “hygiene products” (hand sanitizers I would guess) this year as a measure against the coronavirus. However, please note that depending on the situation with the Coronavirus closer to the time and indeed the weather, there maybe changes or an outright cancellation of the event.

Access Endo Farm

The farm and sunflower fields are located on the North side of the Tone River in Kumagaya city, right on the border of Gunma prefecture. The nearest train station is Nishi Koizumi station in Gunma, but it would take you over an hour on foot. You can get a taxi from the station or use a larger train station such as Kumagaya station and get a bus in the direction of Ota in Gunma.

By car, the nearest interchange is the Hanazono Interchange on the Kanetsu Expressway. There is no car park as such. Parking is just on the agricultural road by the farm. The farm’s ADDRESS, MAP CONTACT DETAILS are BELOW THE RELATED ARTICLES ⇊⇊. BUT THE MAZE IS NOT AT THE MAIN FIELD BY THE FARM BUT BESIDE the former Kojima elementary and middle school. Map below or copy plus code: 7924+93 Kumagaya, Saitama.
