Little-known resort area worth visiting.

Events, Sights, Summer

A lavender field of approximately 20,000 square meters spreads on the lakeside of Lake Kanayama in Minamifurano Town. From mid-July to early August, lavenders blossom to full bloom, creating a beautiful artwork-like landscape together with the lake and the mountains in the background. The Kanayama Lake Festival is held in July of every year. The festival ends with approximately 2,000 impressive and exciting fireworks, including a 700-m long “Niagara” firework display across the lake, colorfully painting the night sky as well as the lake surface.

Also, outdoor activities are popular around Lake Kanayama and various activities can be enjoyed regardless of the season such as canoeing or rafting in the Sorachi River running near by and Japanese pond smelt fishing.
