Early Christmas with Herb Garden
Located in Koshu area of Yamanashi, Herb Garden is known as a place offering breathtaking scenery in all four seasons of the year. There are around 200 different kinds of herbs in Herb Garden.
My friend and I arrived at 3:30 PM, so we took around Herb Garden while waiting for illuminations at night. Right after going inside the gate, there were cute christmas trees for you to take the pictures with your friends.
After that, we went inside a herb shop in Herb Garden. In this shop, you can buy the seeds or small herbs to grow at home
We went to the farm where herbs were growing. I was incredibly impressed by its beauty and a good smell from the herbs. In this area, you can learn a lot of strange herbs which you just saw on the social media or at school before.
The vast array of herbs that are raised here are used for a variety of purposes, both edible and medicinal, and in the making of cosmetics.
From 12.1 to 12.25 around 16:30 - 17:30, there are a lot of activities happening in Herb Garden. But the most popular is Christmas illuminations. Herb Garden seems to change into the other place under illuminations. What an ideal place to hang out with your lover and friends!
There is also a cafe terrace, where you can sit and enjoy herb tea and snacks while basking in the beautiful oasis that surrounds you. The cafe also sells delicious soft serve ice cream in the flavors of vanilla, lavender, or a mix of the two.
Come to Herb Garden and you will be blown away at the beauty of this garden and will be enticed by all of the wonderful floral scents that fill the area.
