A Nyriad of Bloomed Lovely Flax Flowers Are Scattered in A Day -Flax Flowers in Tobetsu-

July 19th, 2017

Flax Flowers (亜麻の花) bloom in late June in Tobetsu located in the northeast part of Sapporo. Tobetsu is a main producing district of the Flax, and tourists can see the Flax Flowers from the outside of the Flax Fields at the best time to see that is from late June to mid July. The Flax Flowers bloom only in the forenoon, and the bloomed Flax Flowers are scattered in a day. Small light blue lovely flowers make me even feel melancholy, too. But I guess that those are the strong life force because a nyriad of the Flax Flowers bloom everyday. By the way, a parking lot is not provided at each fields.

Hokkaido Flax Festival is held from 07:00 - 13:00 in early July, the best time to see, and the time is just blooming Flax Flowers. By the way, there are some Flax Fields to see in the Tobetsu, but the Flax Fields are changed every year, so the Flax Fields are hard to find a little. I found 3 Flax Fields in 4 Flax Fields when I visited the Flax Fields in 12 july 2017. A mark is a flag written "Flax Field (亜麻畑)". In addition, different numbers of the flags stand depending on the Flax Fields. I guess that numbers of the flags mean a grade of the best time to see.

In Japan, only Hokkaido with cool climate is suitable for growth of the Flax. The Flax are cultivated in Tobetsu, Date and Assabu, around Tobetsu. Cool climate regions such as France, Belgium, Netherlands, Russia and Canada are main producing districts of the Flax in the world, so the south of Hokkaido with a lot of humidity is not suitable for the growth of the Flax. The Flax is raw materials of linen used for clothers and towels or linseed oil. In addition, Flax Seeds are edible, and are good for you.

Flax Seeds of Amakosha is found on Amazon.
