Cosmos in midsummer(Manatsu no Kosumosu)


Summer sunshine on the cosmos flowers

In the Kujinokawa area in Nachikatsuura Town close to the trailhead for Okuji-toge Pass, cosmos flowers bloom profusely in the resting rice fields in midsummer to please visitors’ eyes. A residents’ group once planted cosmos seeds in spring, and the flowers began to bloom in June.
