Ashikaga Flower Park あしかがフラワーパーク


af311-20120511_7005.jpg

Ashikaga Flower Park is insanely awesome for its massive and numerous wisteria trees that bloom from late April to mid-May. It also has colorful azaleas and rhododendron. Very pleasant and eye-popping flower park which must be one of Japan's grandest for wisteria. Opened in April 1997. Admission during wisteria season is most expensive at 1,700 yen. The park can be reached from Ashikaga-shi Station on the Tobu Isezaki Line or JR Tomita Station on the Ryomo Line. Shuttle buses run from Ashikaga-shi Station every day during the wisteria season, otherwise, it runs only on weekends.
