It comes right after Cherry Blossoms in Tokyo. It was magnificent but It would probably have been in fuller bloom in late May.

Visited Ashikaga Flower Park at the end of April and the purple wisteria were spectacular. The whites were almost at its peak and the yellows were barely beginning. Though it was a drizzly day, the wisteria and azalea painted the otherwise gray canvas with purples and pinks galore. I'm not sure if the moisture in the air heightened the scent,... More

But still, we are amazed of how big their Wisteria tree are. Anyway, Iris and Hydranyea are starting to bloom, so spectacular and beautiful. Most of the park area is full of Petunia and roses. Worthwhile visiting when you travel to Sano area.

The visit to this Flower Park was one of two highlights of our trip to Japan (Fuji-en in Yahata was the other). We visited on May 6th, 2014 and the pinks, whites, lavenders and DOUBLE wisteria were all in full bloom. The delicate fragrance of the ropes of wisteria cannot be added to this page! Huge bushes and trees loaded... More

We visited the Park on the 17th of May so we missed the white and pink wisteria, and the lavender wisteria was waning, so only the yellow wisteria were in full bloom. I admit I was a little disappointed that we missed the wisteria in full bloom, but the Park was still breathtaking! There were so many flowers, many unique... More

The garden is small enough to walk around in comfortably. But it holds a LOT of blooms! There are places to rest and eat while you gaze at the wisteria showers. We did not stay around for the eve nigh lights but we heard it's also very pretty. A word of caution though. The Tomita station near the park closes... More

Please get off at tomita station, it is one station after Ashikaga station. When you get out of the tomita station, walk to the main road and turn right at the main road, You... More

Getting there was not hard. To foreigners ,buy the Kanto Pass it saves you a lot. Log into Hyperdia.com for trains schedules or as a guide. There weren't any blooming wisterias when we were there on 15/4/2014, it was a pretty hot and sunny that day. Entrance was JPY700/p. It had clustered potted tulips everywhere and budding wisterias on terraces... More

This place is a must do when in full bloom. Had been here in 2013 May. Its a 2 hour train ride from Tokyo. There are loads of people who visit the place and all you need to do is follow the swarm of people heading to the park from the station. Keep at least 3-4 hours to take it... More
