The park is proud to have more than 350 blossoming wisteria such as the 150 year old great wisteria which is a Tochigi Prefecture designated natural treasure, the large wisteria trellis as big as 600 tatami mats with three wisteria trees, a unique wisteria with double blossoms and an 80 m long tunnel of white wisteria.

The winter illumination at Ashikaga Flower Park were amazing, and very cold, it was raining during our visit. We also bought takoyaki in one of the food stall and it was very delicious, and it was lucky because there were not to crowded at the food stall. Overall, it’s definitely will visit again in the near future.

For the lovers of flowers, Heaven, for those not, be prepared for conversion....such is the beauty of Ashikaga. Plan to spend the whole day to see the full beauty, for the transformation to evening is magical with the parks' extensive lighting installations. Food is good and not expensive and travel is free via JR Rail Pass holders, to Ashikaga Station

We went early to see the flowers and decorations in natural light and stayed on for the lightings. Worth every minute of the long train ride to get to the park.

Ashikaga Flower Park Illumination is arguably the best illuminated park in all of Japan. Walking under all the magical lights truly makes for a spectacular and enjoyable evening.

Amazing winter illumination for adult and kids. There are many spots around the park dedicated for nice photography but some might need to queue up. The park is large but it is quite easy and relax to walk around within 2 hours. Go there early to avoid crowd. Alternatively, discounted ticket is available at Lawson for advance purchase.

This is a beautiful park at night with seasonal flowers and millions of LED lighting to create a magical backdrop for photography. We drove and there are ample parking on Sunday despite the crowd. Food option available in the park for dinner. Highly recommended for first timer.

Me and my mum were caught in the jam towards Ashikaga Flower Park as it was the golden week and we arrived in the late afternoon. It was a blessing as the lights up appear not too long. We were able to enjoy the before and after. Flowers were abundance with many different colours and Wisteria Ice Cream was so delicious. Everything was orderly and not chaotic, no pushing or ruahing. Toilet was fast too despite the crowd. It is worth making a trip there.

We travelled up by train with Tobu from Asakusa then took the dedicated bus to the park, going back we walked to the JR station and did the connection from there both options were very straightforward.

Having seen the highly edited Instagram photos of the wisteria tunnels I was prepared to be a tiny bit disappointed but I wasn't at all. It's a totally magical experience, the size and drama of the big trees/vines were impressive especially once you understood the story of the massive one that was transplanted there.

It's a beautifully manicured garden and looking at the wisteria frames up the hill behind the fence it appears that it may grow even larger in coming years. Treat yourself to the strawberry ice cream, it is delicious and for a captive audience and remote location, the food prices were quite reasonable in beautiful surroundings.

Ashikaga 足利市 was our first stop. Located at the far southwest corner of Tochigi, it took us almost three hours to arrive, but we did stop at a couple of roadside stations along the way to take some rest and have breakfast.

In fact, we made this special detour to visit Ashikaga Flower Park 足利花卉公園. Opened in 1968, it was originally a wetland, reclaimed with more than 250 ton of charcoal, now covering a total area of 94,000 sq. metres and attracting more than 1.5 million visitors annually.

The park is famous for its wisteria 紫藤花, with one 150 years ‘Ofuji’ or ‘大藤’, spanning over 600 mats (360 sq. metres) of trellis, a 80-metre long white wisteria tunnel, and more than 350 wisteria trees of different shades of purple, pink, white and yellow, blossoming from mid-Apr to mid-May.

Apart from wisteria, the park also has other flowers blossoming at different times of the year. During our visit it was the season of hydrangea 紫陽花 and iris 菖蒲. We spent 1.5 hours walking around the park and experienced the wonders of the flowers.

Great experience in spring when blooming season starts, you can see the splendor of Wisteria Trellis, tulips, azaleas, pansies, lavanda and many more beauties. The entry price varies from season to season. There is a great selection of seeds, plants and gifts to buy. Also if you submit the survey that you get with the entrance ticket when you exit, you will receive a small gift. The staff is very welcoming and helpful. Lots of places to eat inside the garden. And you can buy plants, seeds, garden decorations, rainbow cactus, a good selection of plants and seeds. Totally go for it!
