I love visiting Sera Farm! I was there last weekend and it was the last weekend for sunflowers. A lot of them were done, but it was still pretty to walk around. I'll be going back for the Dahlia Festival next month!

Hiroshima Miyoshi Winery

Reviewed By worldtravelers_ja - Issaquah, Washington

This is the only winery that i have ever been to before in Japan. It was of little interest. The winery was small and there was little to see. They had wine tasting which was fun. But the wine was not good. Very sweet for my tasting. They did have some interesting fruit wines that i never tried before. But nothing here worth a foreign tourist to visit. Instead go to the sake town of Higashi Hiroshima.

Ombashi

Reviewed By Salomé V

After visiting dozens of museums and temples, stopping at Ombashi and walking the little trail that runs next to the crystal clear river of Taishakukyo gorge was really a refreshing change!
The air there is incredibly pure (you can tell by all the moss growing around the trees and rocks) and the bridge itself is very impressive. The trail continues much further but it is a short 10-15min walk to the bridge from the parking. Bring your camera because you'll have the opportunity to take some really cool shots!

Taishaku Valley

Reviewed By DanL917 - Tokyo, Japan

. . . missing in Tripadvisor, so I'm back. Need to bring attention to what are called 'Mother Farms' in Japan. These are basically parks out in the country with farm animals in them, which usually include a petting area, a field where kids can dig for potatoes or something, and a barbecue restaurant where you can buy a big platter of meat and veggies and grill them. The gift shop will sell dairy and farm products like cheese and sausages. Some, like the one near Ikaho Onsen, will offer stuff like a sheepdog show and even a small modern art museum. Do not visit these places during Golden Week, as they will be packed!
There is one near the Qyukamura Taishakukyo hotel/ryokan, as it's along the same road to get there. I cannot find any English material on the web or even on this site (now that's a mean feat!). So I don't know the name of the farm. What I like about this place is it looks like Hokkaido and is surrounded by rolling hillsides. There is a restaurant at the top of the hill with a great view, and you can buy pieces of beefsteak cut into cubes and grilled with garlic and pepper - really delicious, with a meaty flavor. A trail way at the back takes you to some sort of sculpture I recall. Really a wonderful Mother Farm and if you are in the area, definitely stay at the Qyukamura hotel (best buffet I've seen in Japan) and stop by this farm. Yes, the area is very remote, around 3 hrs by bus from Hiroshima or Okayama, so rental car cross country is what I did to find the spot. Of course the major attraction is Taishakukyo Gorge nearby, but this Mother Farm is just the icing on the cake.
