The tropical view, I like this view!

Even if your heart is clouded, this divine beauty would remove the cloud from your heart, and feels it with brightness, trust me!!

You can see the lily garden from the sky riding on a balloon or a helicopter.
I didn’t try it this time, but I saw many helicopters flying in the sky.
The view from the sky will leave your heart different impression.
But it’s also interesting to see a helicopter on the ground.

There is a shop inside the garden. We can buy a light meal and eat here. I bought a soft cream of lily and ate here gazing at the sky. The helicopter passed many times while I was eating. It’s a true relaxing time!
Some lily-related stuffs were sold as well such as the tea of tea, the snack of lily.
As it’s specialty here, It’s good for a souvenir.

lots of trees are planted inside.
There is a grassy place here as well.
