Hana no Oasis is a community garden. Moreover, according to the prefecture it is the birthplace of flower production in Konosu City. It is located in a rural area of Konosu amid dozens of paddy fields. The garden is landscaped by volunteers through the seasons. The tulips are the highlight of spring and the sunflowers the highlight of Autumn. The field isn’t particularly large, but it is very picturesque and draws thousands of admirers in each season. There is no entry fee into the Hana no Oasis. Its actually just a large field.

In Spring the main attraction of the garden is tulips. It is the joint third most popular place in Saitama Prefecture to admire tulips, along with Fukaya Green Park. Both Hana no Oasis and Fukaya Green Park are placed after Omiya Hana no Oka and Shinrin Park.

Tulips

Supposedly there are approximately 40,000 tulips in the garden. Almost double what is at Omiya Hana no Oka. However, having visited both, it certainly didn’t seem like there were more tulips at Hana no Oasis. Quite the opposite actually. Maybe in 2020 they had a smaller display due to Coronavirus. Although I cannot find any information online to support that.

Tulip Festival

The 2022 Tulip Festival will be held on Saturday April 9th and Sunday April 10th from 9 am to 3 pm. The festival went ahead in 2021 too, but it was cancelled in 2020 due to the pandemic. Weather may effect the activities at the festival, such as flower planting or picking. While access to the field is free, individual flower events are charged. For example, the planting experience event costs 1000 yen per person. Up to 40 people can participate. There is also a picking event which costs 200 yen per person to pick 5 tulips. In a normal year there is normally food vans at the festival, but they weren’t there in 2021 and there is no mention of any food in 2022 either.
