Interact with Sheep on the Farm
The "interactive farm" is located near the phlox hill. Hitsujiyama Park once used to have a farm with cotton sheep. It is said that this is where the name "Hitsujiyama (sheep hill)" originated from. Let's have some fun interacting with the sheep that gave this park its name.

Hitsujiyama Park is divided into north and south. The side of Hitsujiyama Park that is famous for the phlox is on the south, and the north side is famous for its great view point that overlooks Chichubu. You can sit on a bench and spend a relaxing moment.
