Many ways to have fun♪ A space of flowers, plays, and light!

The only national park in the Chugoku region and the pride of Shobara is the Bikoku Hillside Park.
The park, which took more than 20 years to complete, covers an area of 340 hectares. The park can be navigated by car, but the size of the park alone is astonishing as if it were a whole town.
The park has everything you need to see, play, eat, experience, and stay, making it one of the most popular leisure spots in Hiroshima Prefecture.

You can enjoy the park all year round.

Bihoku Flower Picnic 【Early April - Early May】

About 2 million spring flowers, including daffodils, Iceland poppies, tulips, and nemophila, will be in full bloom.

A place for children to play and learn

The vast park is full of fun facilities that make it impossible to get around in a one-day visit. The large playground complex "Kyu-no-oka" has more than 40 different types of playground equipment, including the "Jet Roller Slider" and the "Bikkuri Shower." In the summer, the "Beetle Dome" is open in the recreational forest area, where visitors can interact with beetles and stag beetles.

Bihoku Cosmos Picnic 【Mid-September to Mid-October】

You can enjoy cosmos and other colorful autumn flowers in full bloom.
On Sundays and national holidays during this period, Kagura (Shinto music and dance) performances and various other interactive events will be held. In the center of the flower square, there is the "Bihoku Green Wind Garden" produced by world-renowned gardener Kazuyuki Ishihara, where you can enjoy the collaboration of cosmos and garden.

Bihoku Illumination 【Late November - Early January】

The winter night sky is warmly filled with illuminated lights. Please enjoy a romantic moment.
