You have probably already seen a picture of this magnificent wisteria. It is located in Japan, in the Ashikaga Flower Park, which evolves in accordance with the seasonality of the flowers. If you are visiting Japan, this is an attraction to add to your list no matter what time of year it is. Let’s discover it from day to night on our magazine.
The Wisteria Festival in Japan
Wisteria is called fuji in Japanese. Like the famous mountain of the same name, this flower is very popular among the Japanese (as are preserved flowers). For more than 150 years, this ornamental vine has grown into fabulous shapes that twirl in the wind. Many visitors choose to visit the park from mid-April to mid-May to admire it, but the park has much more to offer. The year is divided into 8 chapters, in which more than a hundred plants and flowers display their own beauty. In winter, fewer flowers bloom, which has led them to create equally beautiful illuminated scenes.
Not-to-be-missed lighting shows this winter
For the 7th year in a row, the park is ranked as the best lighting park in Japan. For more than 10 years, Ashikaga Flower Park has been transformed into a fairy-tale setting with more than 5 million LED bulbs (for environmental and energy saving purposes) in its 100,000 square meters. The light show “Flower Fantasy: The Garden of Illuminated Flowers” runs until 14 February 2023. We leave you with some pictures that will make your eyes light up.
