The largest Himesayuri colony in Japan is located in Takashimizu Nature Park, Minamiaizu-town. One million Himesayuri grow naturally there. During the Himesayuri season, the pink ocean of Himesayuri expands across the park is truly breathtaking.

 

Himesayuri

“Himesayuri(lilium rubellum)”,also called as “Otomeyuri”,is a precious plant that only grows in the Southern part of Miyagi Prefecture and Niigata Prefecture, Fukushima Prefecture, Iide Mountains that border Yamagata Prefecture, Mt Azumasan, and surroundings of Sumondake. Its wild variety is categorized as a near-threatened species in the red list of the Ministry of the Environment.

 

The Takashimizu Natural Park Himesayuri Colony

The Takashimizu Natural Park where colonies of himesayuri flowers grow is said to be the most specious natural park in Japan. One million himesayuri flowers grow wild across 7 hectares of land. Because it can be found at an elevation of 800m, it is also admired as the “Himesayuri of the Sky.”

Himesayuri can be seen from Mid-June to early July. Many people visit to see the pink and pretty flowers.
Open: June 10th 2023-late June 8:00-16:00 
Admission fee:300yen *Kids under 12 are free.

 

Breeding and Growth

Himesayuri grows from seed. Seeds that fell in the fall enter the soil, and the following year roots grow and attach small bulbs. Its sprouts in the spring of the 3rd year. The following year, the leaves grow and the number of leaves increases to 2-3, and the bulbs grow further. In the 6th year, the number of leaves increases to 5 to 6, and finally one flower blossoms. From the following year, as the bulbs grow, the number of flowers will continue to increase one by one a year.

 

Preservation of Himesayuri

Please clean shoes to prevent alien plant species from using the mat at the entrance because Himesayuri is extremely vulnerable to pathogens. Furthermore, do not step off the boardwalk to not step on the Himesayuri sprouts.

 

Coexist with Himesayuri and Bracken

The bracken lives together and protects the Himesayuri. The leaves of bracken create shade to prevent the rise in soil temperature and soften strong winds. The roots of bracken protect the bulbs of Himesayuri from feeding damage of as so on mice. so, do not remove the bracken.
