Japan Deluxe Tours is pleased to announce the Kawachi Wisteria Garden & Wisteria Flower Tunnel are featured destinations on our new
The Kawachi Fuji-en Garden in Kitakyushu is arguably one of Japan's most popular flower gardens thanks to the international attention gathered by the highly photogenic Wisteria Flower Tunnels. An absolute beauty during the spring flower season, a light hike down the Wisteria Flower Tunnel's cascading flowers is simply breathtaking. An impressive array of purple, violet, pink, and white wisteria flowers come together to form an incredible tunnel during the park's blooming months between April and May. Although April and May typically mark Japan's cherry blossom season, skipping the cherry blossoms to see the Wisteria flowers of Kawchi Fuji-en is an option many local Japanese people enjoy. While the rest of the year lacks the bright colors and wisteria flowers, the garden is a tourist hot-spot during the lively Spring holiday season. While some Springs are blessed with more flowers than others, the park is often crowded during April and May with tourists looking to walk along the mythical Wisteria Flower Tunnel. Note, the flower tunnel draws large crowds daily so it's best to go early when the park opens if you're looking to take memorable Instagram or vacation photos in this stunning setting.
In addition to the near 100 meter long Wisteria Flower tunnels at Kawachi Fuji Garden, there's also an impressive flower roof comprised of beautiful Japanese flowers. Step into this amazing room where the towering, blooming trees cover the canopy in stunning spring colors. The Japanese flowers gently dangle from above, letting guests enjoy the sweet fragrance from the blooming petals or take photos in the rustic, nature setting. The beauty of Kawachi Fuji Garden is so well-revered, the Japanese garden is often listed as one of the 10 Beautiful Places in the World that Actually Exists by travel blogs and industry experts. The bright colors mixed with the relaxing scenery results in a charming atmosphere to enjoy the lovely wisteria flowers during the Spring holidays. Do be careful though, the Japanese Garden is most popular during Japan's Golden Week holiday, a time when most Japanese people take time off to enjoy traveling with family and friends. With that in mind, be sure to get to the garden early to beat the crowds. The garden also attracts numerous tourists during the Autumn season, when the crisp maple leaves begin to glow red, yellow, and orange. This year-round attraction is also near bamboo groves in the surrounding forests to add to the serene, nature environment.
Among this lists of Japanese flower gardens, Kawachi Fuji-en Garden continues to be one of the most popular for international and domestic travelers alike.
