Okuyama Kogen

A sightseeing botanical park where nature can be enjoyed during all four season


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"

An estimated 300 Shoryu Weeping Plums will be blossoming. The arrangement of each "Weeping Plum" resembles a dragon rising into the heavens, and such a unique form is a remarkable sight incomparable to anything else in Japan. Weeping Plum seedlings are also available for sale in the park.
The "Shoryu Weeping Plum Blossom Festival" will be held during this time.

Late March ~ Early April "Cherry Blossom"

An estimated 300 Yoshino Cherry and Yae Zakura Cherry trees will be blossoming throughout the park, covering the mountain in the color of spring.
The "Cherry Blossoms Festival" will be held during this time.

Late April ~ Early May "Rhododendron and Azalea"

As well as an estimated 3000 Satsuki Azalea and Rhododendrons blooming, the season is also perfect for seeing Paeonias and Viburnums.

Late May ~ Start of July "Hydrangea"


An estimated 10,000 Hydrangeas will blanket the mountain terrain with their vibrancy. Visitors will be able to view about 70 different types of hydrangeas. Potted hydrangeas will also be displayed.
