Ikoma Plateau is located in Kobayashi City, Miyazaki Prefecture🥭
It is located at the foot of the Kirishima Mountain Range and has an altitude of approximately 500m.

Along with the Saitobaru burial mounds, Ikoma Plateau is one of Miyazaki Prefecture's most famous cosmos spots😄
Ikoma Plateau is also famous for its poppies in spring✨

There is a facility called “Flower Station Ikoma Plateau” next to the flower garden, so it would be a good idea to make that your destination when going to see cosmos🚘
