A green-fingered couple in the town of Yakuno in Fukuchiyama have brought a fallow field to life with a sea of sunflowers that is casting an enchanting sight for local residents amid the autumn breeze.

Approximately 2,000 sunflowers, currently out of season, grace the field thanks to the work of Yoshinori Kinugawa and his wife Chisato, who live nearby.
