Ashikaga Park : Wisteria Festival
2015-09-08 9:20 am
Japanese people are very fond of flowers and nature in general, explaining why parks and flower parks are something pretty (no pun intended) common here. While the park is a delight all year long, it is around the beginning of May, and during the Wisteria Festival, that the place becomes incredibly popular, with the hours of traffic jams that come with it.
Named Fuji (like Mt. Fuji,) the wisteria is loved by Japanese people, and this park is one of Japan’s best places to enjoy this gorgeous flower. You can also marvel at its many wisteria tunnels as well as its unique 100-year old fuji, with branches spanning out with an approximately 25m radius.
