I'd like to go there to see that, but it would cost too much. I wonder if sillygirl would be willing to put me up for one night...

Does anyone know where else in Japan can this type of park be seen right now?

I like these mass displays--tulips, lavender, cosmos--great use of idled farmland (though it would be better if the land were back in use for food production), and a sight better than a golf course, which can only be enjoyed by a few.

She would be really silly to allow you. hahahaha have you ever been successful with a woman Sarge? This kind of scenery is really beautiful and is worthy of spending your money, Sarge. Do not be stingy, buy tickets and hotel for yourself and your important woman and visit the place!

lavender is used for medicinal purposes and has many applications.

japanlori - To add to a list of other places in Japan where you can see lavender farms, there's one in Naka-Furano, Hokkaido. They even serve lavender-flavoured soft-ice cream!

You'd smell like an old lady. Be sure to get a blue rinse to complete the look.
