Doesn’t this seemingly endless tunnel of wisteria just make you want to walk under it?
This is Fuji Park located in the town of Wake, Okayama prefecture.
Situated near a river in the midst of a mountain valley, Fuji Park has gathered around a 100 varieties of famous wisteria from all over Japan – the most wisteria in one place in the whole country.
As there are pathways underneath, you can take a walk through the tunnel while gazing up at the flowers.
Famous wisteria from all over Japan is grown within the park. In addition, even rare Chinese varieties from overseas have been planted there.
Subtle differences in color create a beautiful graduation.
The best season to visit Fuji Park is from late April to the beginning of May. A wisteria festival is organized when the flowers bloom.
You can check the best time to see the wisteria on their homepage, too. In previous years, the best time has been around the 10th of May.
