Red Spider Lily, in Japanese "Manjushage" or "Higanbana", means "flower of the heavens".
This flowers bloom around O-Higan, a period of seven days before and after the Autumnal Equinox Day.
These consist of long slender upward curling petals sit perched atop thick green stem without any leaves. Leaves appear only after the flowers have fallen away.

To see the spider lilies in full bloom, need to come during early autumn. Driving here is more convenient than taking public transport.

We love this park so much!

There is parking, easy walk from Koma Station or Komagawa Station and then take the bus.

It’s great to visit for water play in the Koma River, perfect place to cool down in summer. The spider lilies are amazing but if you want to see them at their peak you’ll have to pay close attention to the parks social media! The peak changes every year and they can only make a prediction for the current year, when the blooms will appear depends on rainfall, temperatures etc.

There is a lot of natural see in the area, the park is planted with cherry blossoms and I noticed maple trees there also. You can spot a huge amount of birdlife along the river, for example herons, egrets and kingfishers.

Lots of food options nearby, including a convenience store, a great organic cafe called Alishan, as well as other cafes and noodle houses. Many are closed on Tuesday/Wednesday though so pick your day carefully.

Also check out Koma Shrine and Mt Hiwada which are very close, too.

It's a very beautiful sight when the spider lilies bloom. You could visit this park then Moomin Valley Park for a one day trip
