Nokonoshima Cosmos in Photos – 2016

Head to the north of Nokonoshima Island for a spectacle that is rivalled by few others: a field of 300,000 cosmos in full bloom. The island is just a 10-minute ferry ride from the Meinohama Ferry Passenger Terminal, and there is a frequent bus service running between the Nokonoshima Ferry Terminal and Nokonoshima Island Park. More details below, but for now here’s what you can expect to see:

1. Cosmos, lots of cosmos.
