Okuyama Kogen is a sightseeing botanical park rich with flora and fauna that spans across Mt. Tonmaku in the mountain ranges north of Hamamatsu city, overlooking the border of Aichi prefecture. All four seasons of Japan can be enjoyed here as different flowers add colors to the park every season. There are gentle sloping trails that are made to accompany the mountain terrain, winding along side a water garden with a seven step waterfall as the centerpiece of the park, as well as small walking paths on the mountain slopes for visitors to appreciate the proudly blooming flora as they take a stroll. There is also a spacious dog run 4,200m² in size, a putting golf course, fishing holes and other facilities that allow visitors to relax in the company of nature for the whole day.

Late February ~ Late March "Shoryu Weeping Plum Blossom"
