Have you ever seen such cute plants before? They sort of look like eggs! This is bassia scoparia. It is green during summer from mid-July, then turns red from late September. A green ball changes into a red one: the totally different sceneries of 2 seasons attract numerous visitors.
Kokia Park in Hirugano Plateau is famous in the Chubu area for its 10000 bassia scoparia. Since Hirugano Plateau is a ski park during winter, it's also possible to view an endless display of bassia scoparia from a cable car!
Not only the cute little bassia scoparia, but also an ocean of various other flowers awaits you! A good place for taking photos!
