Ashikaga Flower Park

I went to Ashikaga Flower Park on April 25th.

Ashikaga Flower Park 

The Park is in Tochigi Prefecture, it takes about 3 hours from my house in Fukushima.

It is very famous for its wisteria flowers.

Admission fee changes every day depends on the bloom condition. We payed 1300 yen on that day(little bit expensive).

There are many wisteria-trellis in the park, we can enjoy violet, white , pink and yellow wisteria flowers.  But the flowers bloomed later than last year, we saw only violet and white wisteria. Sad…..

Doubled- flowered (Yae-zakura) cherry trees were  in full bloom.

My mother and I enjoyed strolling around the town.

The sign says ” Fuji sofuto” in Japanese, literally means wisteria ice cream corn.

It does taste like wisteria. It was not too sweet and very tasty!

 

Well, we really had a good time there and also enjoyed driving along the expressway.

Isn’t it so nice to be surrounded by beautiful flowers??

We were able to get refreshed in the garden!
