We spent many hours last year searching for the fabled Cosmos fields between Fukui City and Harue.  Finally this year, after studying the map again, and doing a bit of detective work (i.e. following a coach) we found them! 

Anyone can go to these fields, wander through the flowers, pick what they want and take them home.  When Tom and I went there were even stalls of festival food, fresh vegetables and other bits and pieces.

For a small price you can be ferried around the fields in this!
