Good tourists place to visit in Japan.
Somewhat unique theme for flower park.
Great blossoms of Wisteria will give immense pleasure with variety in colors. Natural Sunlight as well as night lighting will double the pleasure.
Park is open whole year for mentioned times in a day, but it's better to visit in cherry blossom and near by season to have more impactful memories.
Also few yearly festivals are good to time to visit. I enjoyed a lot..😊

Not sure if it’s because we went at the wrong time but all the flowers were dead. There were no fairy lights, a lot of areas are under construction. The ponds are all not well maintained and there was nothing much to see at all. The only good thing was that the shop was opened, you can purchase snacks or potted plants and seeds.

Ashikaga Flower Park is beautiful! Even though most of the wisteria flowers have finished blooming at their best, the park was still gorgeous with its design and the remainder of the flowers. The kids loved the abundance of ladybugs flying around. They also loved the food. We will definitely come back again!

Amazing location. Cannot believe how beautiful this place is. We went here at the middle of April and sadly the Wisteria where not bloomed yet. I think one week later they would have been. The park is still amazing. The giant wisteria bushed are impressive. Cannot imagine how much care has to go into those. A very much worthwhile place to go to. Highly recommend it.

Gorgeous experience! The wisteria ice cream was really delicious and even though it started storming while we were there, we really enjoyed it. There were so many beautiful flowers to see. Well worth the money.
