Wisteria - Fuji

There’s a type of flower that you will definitely take your hat off to its beauty when encountering. It’s well-known throughout the world for flowerful long-blooming clusters of three mesmerizing colors: white, pink, and purple, with a pleasant faint smelling. That’s Wisteria.

In Japan, when mentioning Wisteria, people will immediately think of Ashikaga Flower Park in Ashikaga City, Tochigi Prefecture. From Tokyo Station, it only takes about 2 hours to get there, don’t forget to bring a camera as every frame of this park is a piece of art ^^

Mid-April to mid-May is the prime time to catch the Wisteria blooms, coinciding with the Golden Week in Japan, then a lot of people come there to enjoy the flowers.

Baby Blue Eyes - Nemophila

Located in Ibaraki Prefecture, about 2 hours by train from Tokyo, Hitachi Flower Park is one of Japan's largest flower parks with an area of 350 hectares.

From mid-April to mid-May, you can see a field of Nemophila stretching to the horizon. The beauty of this sky-colored flower attracts millions of visitors come to enjoy it. Standing in front of a "vast blue ocean", visitors seem to let all the sorrow in life be gone and fully indulge in the beauty of nature there.

Tulips

Originated in Turkey, Tulips have been cultivated and grown in many places in Japan. If you come to the Nemophila field, you should also visit the Tulip Park with 260,000 tulips, which is also belonging to the Hitachi complex of parks.

From the middle to the end of April, Tulips with lots of brilliant colors come into bloom. It will come as no surprise that people put down picnic rugs, place food and tea, enjoying tea while watching flowers. Since beauty is inherently something to behold ^^

Azaleas - Tsutsuji

Located on the outskirts of Tokyo, Shiofune Kannon-ji Temple in Ome City is dubbed as the "Flower" Temple since this ancient place is covered with thousands of flowers such as hydrangeas, lilies, red spider lilies, hagi flowers, and most especially azaleas with 17,000 ones are planted.

Every mid-April to mid-May, azaleas cover the entire hilly area with a color of vibrant pink, attracting numerous domestic and foreign visitors to join the flower festival.

People of all ages, from young to old, want to capture this beautiful scenery.

Lavender

When mentioning Lavender, people will immediately think of a romantic lavender field in France. But did you know that there is also a lavender field in Japan that has made millions of visitors fall in love with?!

Coming to the Tomita flower farm in Hokkaido which is located in the north of Japan from late June to early August, you will be able to look at the extensive purple lavender fields blooming by your own eyes and fully enjoy the fresh air of a peaceful countryside like being lost in a village of an ancient tale.

Japan truly attracts visitors not only by its stunning natural scenery, delicate culinary culture but also by the vivid beauty of the flower seasons.

If someone asks me: Which is the best season to travel to Japan, my answer will simply be: During the flower blooming seasons, as you cannot find any repeated pattern in the picture of four-season flowers there ^^
