A breathtaking array of hanging wisterias and an exquisite flower garden for all four seasons.

You will be totally stunned by four large wisteria vines and 80-metre tunnel of white wisterias，designated as a prefectural natural treasure. In the evening the illuminated wisterias bring dream-like scenes. The park also draws large crowds during the fall and winter months，when the “Bejeweled Flower Garden” is held. It is one of the Kanto area’s top three annual illumination events. The garden welcomes over a million tourists throughout the year.
