Seven Autumn Herbs (aki no nanakusa)
In Japan, nanakusa refers to either of two sets of seven herbs: one consisting of the seven spring herbs (haru no nanakusa) and the other consisting of the seven autumn herbs (aki no nanakusa). The seven autumn herbs are used as decorative flowers at the time of moon-viewing festivities.

Getting to Ushiku Nature Park
Follow route 408 towards Narita. After driving about 20 to 25 minutes away from Tsukuba Center, you will find the Okami intersection (after passing an elementary school on the left hand side). Turn right at that intersection, and then, in about 5 minutes, you will be able to see Ushiku Natural Park easily.

All of these events are free! Have a nice time!
