Tanbara Lavender Park
A ski park in Tanbara, Gunma that opens as a lavender park during the summer season.
From the end of June to late August, Tanbara Lavender Park opens its doors for visitors to come and view the beautiful fields of lavender. There are several different varieties of lavender, so guests can see different species in bloom depending on which time of the month they visit.
Entrance tickets for adults are ¥1,200 per person and summer ski lift tickets are ¥900 per person (although guests can also choose to walk from the entrance area to the lavender fields instead of taking the lift).
The park is dog friendly and many guests visit with their pets and enjoy taking pictures of them in the lavender fields.
Access: Tanbara Lavender Park bus stop (take bus no. 4 from Numata Station, about 35 minutes). To reach Numata Station from Takasaki, take the Joetsu Line (bound for Minakami, about 48 minutes.)
