Located in the city of Ashikaga, in the Toshigi prefecture of Japan is the Ashikaga Flower Park. It is spread across 23 acres of land and is dedicated to cultivating flowers that epitomize the beauty of each season. So visitor experience of the park would be affected by the season in which one plans a visit.
Undoubtedly it is the park's Wisteria tunnels and the ancient 140 year old Great Miracle Wisteria that command the most attention. This flower blossoms from about the middle of April until the middle of May. As one walks through one of the tunnels you will be mesmerized by the pendulous pink, purple, lavender and white flowers. Also on display are flowers such as hydrangea, peonies, water lilies and lantana. During the winter months the park is illuminated in the evenings and looks spectacular.Places nearby:
