Ashikaga Flower Park: Wisteria Flowers Of Unearthly Beauty

This park has wisteria trees and "tunnels" of unearthly beauty when the flowers are in full bloom (pictures in this article!). Illuminations and other flowers are also a thing to see all year-round!

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 of almost unimaginable beauty: 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.

You'll see these in Japanese parks sometimes, but nothing compares to the beauty of the ones at Ashikaga Flower Park!

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

The main attraction of the park are the wisteria trees in bloom, but other times of year are not without interest! These illuminations are displayed during the winter season.
