We went on 11th May, expected the full bloom of wisteria but missed the peak, little too late. During gloden week might be the best which of course the most crowded period too. Anyway, other flowers like roses etc are in full bloom and so beautiful. I personally feel that the park is little small to accommodate this number of... More

Wisteria were not in full bloom by the time we visited, but they were very beautiful, none the less. We really enjoyed our time there and have got many beautifule pictures from this park.

You have to walk about 10 minutes from the train station to the park. It is an easy walk - just follow the crowd. It is a good idea to take note of the train times as the local trains run about every 30 minutes or so. Seeing the wisterias was like being in a fairy tale or fantasy land.... More

This exceeded all expectations. So much colour! It is a magnificent attraction for anyone who loves flowers. It is easy to spend the whole day wandering amongst the blooms. The scent of wisteria permeated the air and was exquisite. Not to be missed.

Went here again this year. This was the perfect season. The grand trees are a sight to see. Went there by car and got there around 10. Try and get there as early as possible as the crowds start and it can be quite a bit. Do try the wisteria flavoured ice cream, lovely.

Yes, its far from Tokyo. Do yourself a favor and get to the park. I hate flowers, well, I hated flowers till i visited Ashikaga. The Wisteria trees will blow you away, if the other plants dont manage to do that!

Named as one of the dream destinations by CNN, the Ashikaga Flower Park in Tochigi Japan is home to two of the oldest wisteria trees in the world. The wisteria blooms few weeks after the cherry blossoms and always coincides with the celebration of the Golden Week. Though there are many kinds of wisteria (fuji flower), the main attraction in...

A word of caution, there are 4 kinds of Wisteria (Fuji) which do not all bloom at the same time, the JR flyers and ads are deceptive in this regard. We went on 7 April and the azeleas were mostly bloomed out. But nice never the less, certainly worth going. I normally hate "light ups" at night but found the... More

This place is amazing. From the moment you walk in it's just breathless. Just when you think you've seen something pretty you see something even prettier. And the scent, the wonderful wonderful scent of wisteria. We went right at the peak on April 28th and it was definitely a big highlight of the trip. They sell food and souvenirs as... More

Although I already visited this place, it's the first time I can enjoy the wisteria flowers. Flowers are fully bloomed and it's smelling so good since you enter the park. You can see there really huge and old wisteria trees, from purple to white shades. But also many other species, even some last sakura or peach flower, etc etc... If... More
