It's really gorgeous! A lot of flowers. Nice place for healing, and getting rid of the stress. If you have your own garden it's the best place to buy seeds, flowers etc. You can firstly walk around and see everything (everything has a name pad), and after that buy anything you want in the big shop near the entrance

Ashikaga Flower Park provides charming flower with seasonal decoration.
This is good for sightseeing. You can take lot of good photos. You can access to Ashikaga, Tochigi in Japan through JR East railway.
There is a long tunnel with Fuji flowers. The Park features plenty of white, blue and pink Fuji. This should be one of the best places to view Fuji flowers. This should be the place if you had never seen those flowers before.
Also, there is a flower shop as well as coffee shop for you to buy gifts, and snacks.

Great experience in spring when blooming season starts, you can see the splendor of Wisteria Trellis, tulips, azaleas, pansies, lavanda and many more beauties. The entry price varies from season to season. There is a great selection of seeds, plants and gifts to buy. Also if you submit the survey that you get with the entrance ticket when you exit, you will receive a small gift. The staff is very welcoming and helpful. Lots of places to eat inside the garden. Totally go for it!

Excellent spot for flower enthusiasts, couples, families with something to see in all seasons. This place is best known for its amazing Fuji (Wisteria) flowers though which is a must see if you are in Japan. There are also many other flowers like Sakura, Roses etc.

The best time to see Wisteria in full bloom is from mid April to first week of May and you can expect huge crowds. JR built a station exclusively for this park and I recommend using the train option because finding a place to park your car can waste precious time. The train trip takes 2.5 hours from Tokyo and tourists can use JR pass to get here.

Make sure to add this place in your itinerary!

It was nice! Wisterias weren’t blooming but I’ll return! The wisteria ice cream was delicious! You must try it.
