Hozugawa Boat Ride
Country Farm Tokyo German Village opened in 2001 in the rolling hills of Sodegaura.
Stretching out over an area about 19 times larger than Tokyo Dome, this back-to-nature theme park recreates the rural landscape of Germany. Inside you will find various attractions, including a Ferris wheel, a miniature golf course, and a turf sled slope, offering fun experiences for both young and old. You can also view spectacular blooming plants, with 250,000 moss phlox and poppies in display in early spring, lavender, hydrangeas, and roses flourishing at the start of summer, mealycup sage blossoming in the summertime, and autumn roses in full bloom when fall arrives.
Aside from enjoying the flowers from season to season, you can also see wondrous illumination displays at night during the winter months.
