It costs nothing to enter so you can enjoy strolling around the garden to your heart’s content. (required time: 15–60 min)
We are happy to accommodate both tour groups and individual travelers. We can also take requests regarding meals and make adjustments to items on the menu.
Kuju Nonohana no Sato is situated right in between the Kokonoe Yume Suspension Bridge and Chojabaru in Aso-Kuju National Park, and is only a 5-minute drive from the Kokonoe Yume Suspension Bridge. This makes Nonohana no Sato the perfect hub for sightseeing in the Aso and Kuju areas.
We offer free guided tours of the wildflower garden for groups (reservation required) to help you get an up-close and personal look at the garden. With the help of our guides, you will be able to learn about the special characteristics of each wildflower, how they got their names, and other interesting knowledge.
We strive to use as many local ingredients as possible for our restaurant’s cuisine.
Enjoy traditional dishes from the region such as dango jiru (dumpling soup), Bungo Beef shabu-shabu made with local beef from Oita, or yakuzen cuisine that features nutritious, medicinal herbs and spices.
