Japan is ultra famous for its Cherry Blossoms ( aka Hanami, Sakura, etc). However, there’s a lot more to visit within Tokyo and its nearby prefectures to appreciate a Spring trip in Japan. I’m listing down the 3 flower gardens that you can visit in case the Sakura flowers have all fallen down.
(1) Hitachi Seaside Park
This park is so famous with its hill of Blue Nemophilia flowers during Spring. I remember that I always see a photo of this place mentioned in the top surreal places all over the world.
Aside from the blue Nemophilia field, the park also has a lot of tulips in its gardens. It’s even something that can be of equal with Keukenhof in Netherlands!
(2) Wisteria temple outside Tokyo
This temple is slightly on the outskirts of Tokyo but you can visit it in case you have a free half day or so. There’s a bigger Wisteria garden outside Tokyo, but this one should be worth it too because of the perfect Japanese style bridge wonderfully framed with the Wisteria flowers.
(3) Azalea flower park in Ueno
We just discovered this garden out of curiousity. My friend Pat who invited me for this trip found out about it in the internet, and since it is walking distance from our hotel, we decided to say hello. Whoala- we were surprised with how beautiful it was!
