  • Wisteria is famous but flower and Tulip time was later this month. After plum? Cute Christmas rose. Not too crowded, very relaxing. Even without flowers are blooming Wisteria trees are powerful and! Strawberry Smoothie was delicious, but Fuji soda very similar to the scent of SOAP.

  • Fuji's here are great. Much watching the Wisteria flower sea lions and fade impressed in the other Wisteria scale is different. Purple, white, yellow and the colour of fun, wrapped in good smell in the garden, Wisteria curtain step is a sense of being. Also non-wisteria flowers (azalea, etc.) are garden in full bloom. Every year, all the way all the way Wisteria looking forward to coming in. May feel and the entrance fee is a bit high, but well worth it.

  • Ashikaga Tochigi ago I went, so did in the news tried to come into flower. Watched a light rattan is this year from late April, one month or so will bloom now usually sales was. Wisteria is badly crowded car seems open season on admission fee is 300 yen, period of 1700 yen seems. Love flowers too, and are also a lot of flower sales. Watching like Wisteria light up just once.

  • Ashikaga's wisteria trees bloom brilliantly for a few weeks every spring, turning the park into a vision of pastel pinks and pourpres. 350 wisterias, at their peak in spring, between mid-April and mid-May. Blossom starts with light pink blooms first in the season, followed by purple wisteria, white and then yellow.
  • Went during Xmas for their super Christmas most LEDs in the world visible from space light-up extravaganza. Being on the Kanto plain below the mountain it was pretty cold and windy so beware is you're coming during the winter season. That said, there was arguably more Christmas in their light-up display here compared to other places in Japan which use Christmas as an excuse to make a lot of LED art. It is a pretty sizable park so, even with peak crowds, walking around isn't as stressful as other places. Gift shop sells souvenirs and, surprise, plants as well. They have a big selection of tiny plants (was close to making an impulse buy). However, beware of the traffic jams on your way here. If driving, google maps will give you the best real-time route to 'cheat' and beat the lineup.
  • The park is beautiful and a lovely place to spend an afternoon. But, during the wisteria season in the spring, that's when the garden is at its most beautiful. I went at the end of the season, my main destination is the shibasakura festival, but even then what's left from the tunnel of hanging wisteria was still a pretty sight. And other flowers are still blooming so twas all good.
  • I loved this place! While there isn't much else to do around this station, this park is worth it the trip! I went there by myself but it would be such a cute date spot for certain. ;) Many of the short term flowers like irises are kept in pots so they can be moved into beautiful arrangements and put on buoys to float on the ponds. I went while they were displaying the Blue and White Garden and it was gorgeous! So many hydrangeas and irises perfectly arranged for easy viewing. While short term flowers appeared to be mostly potted there was still a grand number of flowering bushes and just beautiful walkways. I will definitely make a trip back here for when the wisteria are in bloom because there are 4 giant wisteria trees and giant archways and bridges covered in wisteria plants. It's worth it if you enjoy flower viewing!
  • Definitely a Must-visit during the blossom season,although this can be pretty crowded
