Inawashiro Herb Garden

The Inawashiro Herb Garden prides itself on its magical expanse of vivid greenery and colorful flowers that is home to approximately 500 varieties of herbs and flowers that change with the seasons, such as lavender, mint, chamomile, rape blossoms, sunflowers, cosmos, poppies and more. The garden also cultivates the largest expanse of lavender in the prefecture, which is a long-running favorite for flower gathering. The symbol of Inawashiro Herb Garden is a series of giant 5 meter tall wood carvings made by a Canadian artist with the theme of the Japanese zodiac. Currently the mouse, ox, tiger, rabbit, dragon, snake, and horse have been completed and stand tall among the herbs and flowers. Hand-made dried flowers, potpourri, and essential oils are available for purchase.
Various activity plans and herb craft workshops are also available (reservations required).
