We will hold the 16th anniversary “Blossoming RISONARE 2020,” our annual festival celebrating the spring arrival, this year. This time, "Piment Street" will be renewed with large flower motifs. We will also use motifs of “O-murasaki,” the national butterfly of Japan, to decorate the 15-meter-high (about 49ft) “Bellini Tower” located in the center of the street. Moreover, you could be a butterfly dancing in the flower garden when taking pictures at the new photo spot. Spend some extraordinary time on Piment Street surrounded by flowers; Lets picnic on the green in the square, or participate in a workshop to make a large paper flower (with a diameter over 45 cm, about 17.7 inches). (March 20 - May 24)
The 16th anniversary Blossoming RISONARE, our annual spring event, will be renewed this year. There will be 1.5-2m (4.9-6.5 ft) high flower motifs on the 150-meter-long (about 492 ft) main street "Piment Street," and you will feel the spring beauty with the flower seedlings grown in the Yatsugatake area. From April 29th to May 6th, tulips and gerberas from one of Japan's leading production areas will create a gorgeous world.
From April 29th to May 6th, the stone pavement will be colored with flowers from Niigata and Toyama prefectures. The two places have thriving tulip bulb cultivation. We use tulips from there to decorate by making a petal carpet with the removed buds that were cut before flowering to grow good quality bulbs. Also, you will see gerbera from Shizuoka Prefecture float on the water. The prefecture has the most gerbera production in Japan. We only use flowers that are not qualified for sale due to slight differences in color or size. Blossoming RISONARE has been held for 16 years with the support of the farmers from the production areas.
Bellini Tower, the 15-meter-high (about 49 ft) symbol of Piment Street, will be decorated with the butterfly decoration inspired by the Japanese national butterfly "O-murasaki." Hokuto City, where the hotel is located, has the largest number of O-murasaki in Japan. In early summer, you will see them flying around the plateau with beautiful purple wings. At the foot of the tower, there is a photo spot where you may become a dancing butterfly in the flower garden. The “Blossoming Picnic Park” with green is a perfect place for you to enjoy wine or sweets and have a relaxing spring time.
The restaurants/stores on Piment Street have picnic menus with matching wines. Choose your picnic menu and your wine from the Kitchen Car; enjoy them while admiring the flower blossom spreading throughout the space.
A workshop "Jumbo flower making" for children and adults to enjoy. Jumbo flower is a large paper flower with a diameter of 45cm or more, made of colorful materials such as pink and orange. The completed work will be used in photography as a photogenic item.
In il mare, we hold il mare that flower blooms this year. A float with a flower motif floats in the main pool, which is 60 meters long, to create a photogenic space. The float that floats over the entire pool is like a flower garden swaying in the breeze of spring.
