Ashikawa town in Fuefuki, Yamanashi prefecture, is home to a river basin area known as ‘suzuran-gunsei-chi’, from which highly prized ‘suzuran’ (Japanese Lily of the Valley) flowers grow wildly & in abundance.
It is extremely rare throughout Japan to see suzuran growing en masse in this way, and consequently the flower is a designated Natural Monument of Yamanashi prefecture. The sight of the flowers seemingly hidden among the denser foliage is a pretty sight to behold, emitting a soft, refreshing fragrance.
The suzuran ‘matsuri’ (festival) takes place when the flowers are in their full bloom, with everyone welcome to come and enjoy one of Japan’s rarer natural phenomena.
