Rest House Ikoma-Kogen Flower Station

Ikoma-Kogen Flower Station
A sightseeing spot where you can see seasonal flowers in full bloom.

At this popular sightseeing spot, you can watch the highland paint itself in a new color every season. The bright poppies blossom in spring and elegant rose mallows open up in summer. As the summer heat begins to subside, the blooming cosmos flowers signal that fall is soon coming to the highland.

Once you finish appreciating the kaleidescope of blossoms, stop by Hana-no-Eki Ikoma Highland. Here, you can purchase the popular cosmos tenugui hand towel, which is available exclusively at this facility. These towels features 30 types of seasonal designs and make excellent souvenirs or gifts. At the terrace café, you can also enjoy an excellent cup of coffee and a satisfyingly rich serving of soft-service ice cream while relaxing with a view of highlands and, on a fine day, a pleasant breeze from the Kirishima Mountain Range.
