Sanukimannopark is Shikoku’s only state-run park with total area of 3.5㎢ and is a park filled with seasonally blooming flowers. Visitors enjoy beautiful landscapes decorated with plants like narcissus, tulips, and Nemophilas in the spring, and hydrangeas and sunflowers in the summer. In the fall, kochia (bassia scoparia) leaves turn red colors and cosmos flowers bloom.
The park also has many facilities for visitors to enjoy, where they can spend their entire day, including a large grass area, playground equipment that children love, cycling courses, and the largest RV campground in Shikoku.
*The timing of the flowers’ blooming may shift depending on weather and other conditions. There may also be some changes in the species and number of flowers depending on the year.
Enjoy a relay of bright and colorful spring flowers coming into bloom. At various parts of the park, flowers such as Narcissus (about 70 species, 200,000 plants), tulips (about 30 species, 45,000 plants), and Nemophilas (about 300,000 plants) will come in bloom one after another, as if one is handing over a baton to the next. Other flowers such as cherry blossoms, and Bearded Irises will also be coming into bloom during this season.
In the Hydrangea Garden, a wooden bridge crosses the edge of the Hiryū Pond, and about 40 hydrangea species totaling 200,000 plants will come into bloom. The Japan-native hydrangeas flower during tsuyu (rainy season) and look beautiful in the rain. During the festival, rent a Japanese style umbrella (free of charge) and experience the feel of a very Japanese setting.
In the summertime, enjoy sunflowers (about 15,000 plants) and green bassia scoparia (about 6,000 plants) with their soft, gently swaying leaves. You will hear happy squeals of children fully enjoying their summer vacation coming from the water playground and “kabuto-mushi (unicorn beetle) land.”
In the fall, plants like the cosmos (about 10 species, 300,000 plants) and bassia scoparia (about 6,000 plants) that have turned colors will color the park in autumn hues. As cosmos bloom at different times depending on the species and the bassia scoparia turn from green to radiant red to light brown, visitors will view a rich variety of hues in the vegetation during this season.
For this event, park hours will be extended to stay open till the night time, and the grounds will be decorated with colorful illuminations. With the large-scale grand illumination that covers an area of about 30,000㎡, as well as the lighting up of the Shoryu Waterfall and a champagne glass tower, the entire park will transform into a fantastical world of lights.
Plants like the Christmas roses (about 3,000 plants), Brassica rapa (about 15,000 plants), Japanese Narcissus (Narcissus tazetta, about 25,000 plants), and Japanese plum trees (about 120 plants) will gradually start to bloom as if to announce the arrival of spring.
