Atami Plum Garden, Atami

3.4
#2 of 14 in Parks in Atami
With 472 trees of 59 varieties, some over a century old, Atami Plum Garden provides a true smorgasbord of plum trees. Famous for some of the earliest plum blossoms in Japan, as well as an abundance of red maple leaves in fall, the garden surrounds a stream with a small waterfall. Opened in 1886, the plum grove dotted with maple trees and azaleas nowadays also features an art gallery and a Korean garden. A huge ancient camphor tree overshadows a small temple, where devotees come to pray for help with alcoholism. Geisha performances, folk songs, and sweet sake festivals occur during the blooming season, from January to March. Take a bus or walk 15 minutes uphill from Kinomiya station to reach the garden.

    Visited on 1 / 29. Te from Atami Station ko長 have not climbed up the Hill, but the weather was so so tired. (Buses leave. ) So I was doing a Festival also opened, which was buzzing. Colorful Plum was beautiful, but I think that already begin to bloom. Also spell good and bloom. I think staff on site, walking the course to do. It is good people staying in Atami, discounted admission fee for services.

    In the limited period of 6 months 19-9 pm I went between the Firefly can watch. Entered from the entrance in the garden on the river there where no way light is dim light, and that light along. Auld Lang Syne was around. Probably 20-could see the 30 or so. It was very beautiful and fantastic space.

Where to stay in Atami

The fairly modestly sized urban area of Atami boasts a number of places to stay, which is fitting for this holiday resort town. The most built-up area around the harbor has lots of modern hotels and more established guesthouses. Many focus on comfort and luxury, with traditional onsens at most of the places. Shoestring travelers will find some budget-friendly options without spa facilities--you can always pop into one of the accommodations with an onsen if the mood strikes.
