What started as a nice gesture became a major tourist attraction
Mr. and Mrs. Kuroki ran a dairy farm daily in rural Japan. That is, until Mrs. Kuroki lost her eyesight due complications from diabetes. She became depressed, removed herself from the family business and went into isolation.
Struggling with ways to make his wife happy again, Mr. Kuroki decided to plant a scented flower garden large enough for her to smell and tempt her to go outside. Two years later, not only did the garden appeal to Mrs. Kuroki, but the thousands of flowers now attract outsiders to visit the private farm.
Thousands of people travel from all around the world to see this real-life love story
