There’s nothing more powerful or beautiful than an act of true love, and Mr. Kuroki’s selfless gesture for his wife may be one of the sweetest acts of love we’ve ever heard.

Mr. and Mrs. Kuroki were married in 1956 and moved to a dairy farm shortly after. The couple was married for 32 years when Mrs. Kuroki lost her eyesight from diabetes complications. She became depressed and began to spend all her time indoors.

Mr. Kuroki came up with a brilliant idea to bring joy back into his wife’s life again. After looking at some pink flowers called shibazakura (or moss phlox) one day, he realized that the beauty of a flower isn’t all about appearance but also scent.

He spent two years planting thousands of the flowers until they blanketed the farm and filled the air with a beautiful aroma. Mrs. Kuroki began to smile and spend time outdoors again.

Now, the residence has become a tourist destination with nearly 7,000 people a day between March and April visiting the Shinto Town farm. Visitors are not only drawn by the fields of pink blooms, but also by the epic love story of a devoted husband and his lovely wife.
