    11 month of time off, flowers and complimentary invitation tickets and newspaper advertising leaflets, so I went to take a walk with my wife. It's how many people went imagine that fewer people walk in the autumn has arrived, I was surprised. Together with almost 95% while watching a hobby many people fixed point and I'm watching Pokemon go. Often come when things not seen before and frankly, it was annoying. Could you stop in these places I guess. Nintendo's.

    I asked my wife's family and children. To adjust the season, it was perfect timing. From the end of April, may and cold in April is the season to be at the beginning, but just in time for the Golden, the pounding.

    It's a 2-hour train ride from Tokyo. We reached the place at 5:20 in the afternoon in time for the Lighting Up schedule. If it was not wisteria-blooming season, we could have up gotten there on closin...  more »

    The flowers can't be beat. It really is as gorgeous as it looks online, and the meandering pathways mean new sights wherever you walk. There are amazing sights in all seasons because of how thoughtfully the park is designed. But during the warmer months and the hottest part of the day it's hard to find a shady spot to sit down.

    Beautifully arranged flower garden. The 150year old Wisteria tree was surreal! Especially during the evening light up! The entry is a bit expensive but look out for train + entry packages at the train station as it could save you over 50%! You can't bring food in for picnic at the park but there are reasonably priced food inside. The Wisteria soft serve was also delicious!

    We came on April 22 to see the wisteria flowers. It's about 2 hours out of Tokyo, depending where you are staying. The trip will take most of the day. Expect to spend at least 2-4 hours here depending if you eat or are taking photos. There were some wisteria trees that were starting to bloom but they were definitely not close to full bloom like how you see in photos. We were a little bummed out, but you can't predict nature completely. There were still a ton of beautiful flowers and we were even able to catch some of the cherry blossoms still blooming. This place was still definitely worth taking a trip to. Lots of great photo ops! You must try the wisteria ice cream and visit the gift shop. Make sure you bring enough yen since they don't take credit cards.

    I visited the park on May 6, 2017 during night light up festival. It was awesome you can see, smell and feel the flowers. We rested under the wisteria flower and the gentle wind blows some flower leaves as it is falling. Highly recommend to visit and try the wisteria ice cream.

    Took a couple trains to get here from Tokyo and has a $1000yen entrance fee. Huge gardens which I'm sure would look amazing with the wisteria; however, they were not yet in bloom when I visited. Still had nice flowers and trees around with restaurants and a gift shop in the front.
