This vast enchanting garden is located in the southern area of Tochigi Prefecture and is pretty accessible from Tokyo. It claims to have the most beautiful wisterias in the world which I can’t attest just now. I went there last Sunday with my husband which wasn’t the perfect time as the said flowers are expected to be in full bloom during spring. I was well aware of it and yet I pursued to get there for a rather different reason.
This is what Ashikaga Flower Park** turns into by night.
The garden, being illuminated gives you a sense of fantasy. I don’t think I did justice to the place through this photo I took. It was pretty overwhelming and I saw the other visitors totally amused by what we were seeing.
During the daylight, I managed to relish in the beauty of some other flowers.
It was such a lovely stroll with the love of my life. Come evening when the garden was adorned with bright and colorful lights and accompanied by some mystical music background, it made me imagine we were in a different world.
You can take delight in the dazzling scenes while munching on some delicious dishes available right in the park.
Reminds of the movie Avatar, my favorite of all time. What do you think?
If you’re someone who finds beauty in nature and illumination, this park is the right spot for you. I can’t wait to witness the wisteria festival next spring (from mid-April to mid- May)! You coming?
