Toyota-City Katakuri Asian Fawnlily Colony of Asuke
|Mid-March to early-April
The astounding Asian Fawnlily colony of Korankei
The district of Asuke in Toyota-City never ceases to amaze! There’s charming Asuke Old Town, Korankei autumn leaves, Chuma Hina Dolls event, Sakura cherry blossoms, and last but definitely not least, the amazing colony of Asian fawnlilies, known in Japan as Katakuri plants (Erythronium japonicum), that when blossoming turns into a spectacular show of nature! Akin to the more common trout lilies, the cute flowers' colony is located on the northwest slopes of Mt. Iimori. Blossoming between mid-March to early April, in that time the spot attracts flocks of visitors who come eager to set their eyes on the vast flowering area. Before departing, check the weather and seek sunny days, as those delicate blossoms won’t show their grace on rainy or cloudy days. We also recommend comfortable shoes for rugged terrain and outdoor attire.
