The Tonami Tulip Fair is a must see if you are spending time in Toyama Prefecture. The Fair, held from the last week of April till the beginning of May, is a fabulous showcase of over two million tulips carefully developed by horticulturalists. The annual event is normally attended by thousands, and features a number of performances, in addition to its trademark tulip soft cream. Visitors can also customize their own tulip bouquets, create tulip artwork and climb to the top of the giant tulip to see the sprawling spectacle of the colourful grounds. If you happen to be in Tonami during spring, be sure to visit the Tonami Tulip Festival. It is a feast for the eyes!
