Nabana no Sato is an attraction in Mie Prefecture that can be visited during any of the four seasons, with each time of year featuring a different theme. During spring, a flower festival is held for visitors to enjoy and take pictures in the garden. Specifically, during February and March, the plum blossoms and sakura flowers are in bloom and the entire garden glows pink at night. Fall offers vibrant, fiery colors as the red momiji leaves reflect off the surface of the mirror pond. During winter, the entire garden is illuminated, attracting visitors from all over the world. There are different illuminations such as “cloud sea of light,” which is popular among couples.

Throughout the year, the flower garden in Andes Begonia Garden located in the park is one of the main attractions as it has tons of colorful flowers. If you’re a fan of roses, there is a garden dedicated to this flower and contains 800 types of roses. You can even grab yourself rose soft serve ice cream available in the garden. Taking a break is always important, and the garden provides that with their day spa Sato-no-Yu, where you can bathe in their open-air hot spring bath.
