Ashikaga Flower Park

The flower park is one of the most famous in the country, and for good reasons! You get to see a scene unlike any other in the country: old and majestic wisteria trees in full bloom! The best season to visit it for the wisteria flowers is from mid-April to mid-May.

The tree pictured above is approximately 150 years old! And notice how the branches are supported by a grid system so that they grow out horizontally. Typical Japanese craftsmanship.

And the wisteria trees are lit up at night too. The night scenery is equally as amazing as the daytime one, if not more.
