Sunflowers at Tokorozawa Sunflower Field

August 15 @ 15:00 19:00

Tokorozawa sunflower

Tokorozawa Sunflower Field and Festival also known as the Mikajima Sunflower fields. The sunflower fields are located in the Sayama Hills area relatively near Kurosuke House where a life sized Totoro lives!

August 4th: still no update on whether the festival will go ahead this year. August 13th: it would seem there is no event this year. 

Tokorozawa Sunflower Field and Festival

The Tokorozawa sunflowers generally bloom from the Obon holiday period and through to late August. During the period that they are in bloom they usually have a live music performance in the sunflower fields on, weather permitting, from 3pm to 6.45 pm around the middle of August. The 2020 date has not yet been released, but it will most likely be the 15th of August. However, this year, with the Coronavirus situation, there is a chance that the sunflower fields will not be open to the public and/or that there will be no event this year, 2020.

The planting event (linked to external site, Japanese language only) is normally held in early June. For the planting event locals including children plant the sunflowers in the Tokorozawa Sunflower field.


There are about 20,000 sunflowers at Tokorozawa no Himawari Hatake. The fields are FREE. There is parking for about 20 cars.

Access by train / bus: Take a Seibu bus for Waseda University 早稲田大学 from the South exit of Seibu Ikebukuro Line Kotesashi Station, alight at Dainichido 大日堂 . Its about a 7 minute walk from the station.
