A truly delightful view can be found in Kitakyushu city in Japan. You might have seen pictures of this breathtaking place all over Instagram and its name is: Kawachi Fujien Wisteria Garden. The name of this private garden comes from the gorgeous wisteria flowers that bloom every spring from April to May.
The most spectacular part of the garden are the tunnels made of wisteria trees of different colors. These tunnels transport you to a purple fairy tale place approximately 100 meters long. You can walk around and look at the garden from the top of a hill and enjoy the beautiful view of the valley. Wisteria is a species native to Japan, Korea and China and we can see 20 different species in the garden.
Thanks to its popularity on the internet, the last few years have been busy for the garden during peak season. The place can get so crowded you need to purchase the entrance tickets before hand or you won’t be allowed to enter. Besides, traffic jams can make the journey to get there quite tiring by car or public transportation.
If you want to experience the natural beauty of Japan you cannot miss this garden located 5 hours away from Tokyo. You can also delight your senses with the cherry blossom or ‘Hanami’ in many spots of the country.
