Spring is one of the best seasons for strolling in the park, viewing many flowers and trees.  

Ashikaga Flower Park is famous for its biggest wisteria in Japan. As the wisteria is huge and really beautiful, many people has been fascinated with the magnificent view.

 

Ashikaga Flower Park - Let's enjoy a beautiful view of wisteria

 

You may be surprised, but the tree is about 150 years old, and was transplanted from a different place to the current place about 20 years ago. The big project for moving the tree was done successfully. The wisteria tree is still growing with a lot of vitality. It’s so amazing!  

Besides the wisteria, the park has various kinds of wisteria - pink, purple, white and yellow.

Last year the park has been chosen as one of Dream destinations of 2014 by CNN.  

http://edition.cnn.com/2013/12/25/travel/cnn-travel-2014-wish-list/   

The best time to see the wisteria changes slightly each year, but in general, from late April to the middle of May would be the best season.

We booked Yoko for a half day tour our first day in Tokyo and so glad we found her. She picked us up in the lobby of our hotel right on time and took us everywhere we asked her to see. We had a fantastic sushi lunch and really enjoyed her company. Yoko speaks wonderful English and taught us so much about Tokyo and Japan.

Whatever I say here about our experience with Yoko in Tokyo will not do her justice. She is a wonderful guide and we enjoyed every minute. She was extremely attentive and wasnt even bothered by our 10 year olds attack with questions. She was very knowledgable about the areas, moreso than we expected. Although she is listed here as "licensed" in English - We would have classifiied her as fluent. We...

Half day tour of Tokyo, Nov 10, 2018. Yoko took us to a beautiful park in the heart of the city (Hama-rkyu gardens) then on a tour of the fish market and for a Sushi lunch.
