How to Get There
Tonami Yumenotaira is located in a mountainous area and is a 25-minute drive away from Tonami Station on the JR Joyo line. A free shuttle bus operates for the duration of the event.
By car, get off the Hokuriku Expressway at the Tonami Interchange and drive 20 minutes to Yumenotaira.
Pretty in pink
Yumenotaira serves as a ski field in the winter, but when October arrives, the verdant hillsides burst into bloom, turning the slopes pink. The two-week long Tonami Yumenotaira Cosmos event in early October offers a rare opportunity to see such a high concentration of the flowers in one place.
The stage is set for a perfect afternoon with tranquil scenes providing a vibrant backdrop. When viewed up close, the flowers form a subtle mosaic of pinks, violets, and indigos making for interesting macro photos.
