Narita Yume Farm, covering an area of nearly 30 thousand square meters, was established in 1887. There are plenty of all-day recreational activities to enjoy here. Not only watching sunflowers but also playing with cute cattle.

Location: 730 Nagi, Narita, Chiba.

The best time to see flowers: mid-July ~ end-August

Travel: Take the free bus from Namegawa station.

Ticket: 1400 yen (An additional fee of 300 yen to enter the sunflower garden).

Unlike the previous times when I often went to see sunflowers in big parks, this time I chose a farm in Chiba, Japan. My roommate and I left at 8 am from Hon Chiba station and got there just in time to take the 9 o'clock bus. After riding the bus for a while, we reached the farm. As soon as getting off the bus, many people including me immediately came to take photos with the statue of a dairy cow there, with the name of the farm below it.

After I finished taking photos, I went to the ticket counter. We came pretty early, so there weren't many people. Therefore, we didn't have to wait too long. The staff gave me a ticket with a small book about the history and activities

Stepping through the ticket gate, we went inside, through a few shops but almost all of them hadn't been opened yet. When we were on the way back, we found them open, but the food was a bit over the students' budget, so we didn't try them.

We saw a cow farm going a little further, so we approached it. We're not allowed to access this area, so we just watch the cows from outside.

Leaving there, we went to a farm that raised a lot of animals here, such as goats, sheep, rabbits, ducks, etc. At first, I didn't intend to walk in because I was afraid that they would become aggressive and bite or attack me. Therefore, I just stood outside and teased them, but then I saw many people going inside, and the animals all interacted nicely with them, so I went in too. I don't know if it was because I was teasing them before, but they didn't play with me when I entered. They just ran away.

Playing with them a bit, we went deeper inside and discovered a strawberry garden here. Strawberry garden was grown in an enclosed house, the door was closed very carefully so we couldn't go inside, maybe because the season hadn't come yet, so it was not opened.

My last stop was at the sunflower garden. We had to buy another ticket to enter the garden. The staff members guided us little by little about this flower, and there was even a quiz there. Unfortunately, we couldn't solve it.

When I went inside, I saw many big and beautiful sunflowers like that for the first time. Two of us started to pose and take photos of each other. Since I'm so short, the sunflowers totally covered me.

Having enough photos below, we went up to a small "balcony" nearby to see the garden easier. Looking down from above, the flowers were even much more beautiful. I quickly ran downstairs for my younger brother to take pictures of me from above.

Getting tired after playing, we two intended to come back since we had another plan, but we discovered a train track outside that kept us staying a little more time to take a few pictures and then left for home.

We didn't stay until the closing time, but we left around noon. When I returned, I heard that there were many different activities in the sports area, but I didn't know, so I didn't come there. Everyone who goes there should try all the activities before leaving, don't miss them like me.

Note:

  • You should not wear white clothes because you might get dirty when going to the sunflower garden or playing with the animals there.
  • Pay attention to buses' scheduled departure and arrival times on the farm's website.
