In recent years the wisteria tunnels at Kawachi Fuji-en, a botanical garden in Kitakyushu, have been on point. So much in fact, that they have started attracting thousands of floral addicts far and wide.
The park has been going strong since the 1970s and is home to 150 trees and over 22 wonderful-smelling (seriously, they smell so good it’s intoxicating) varieties of wisteria. Think vibrant pinks, brilliant whites, magical blues and royal purples.
Now is the perfect time to start booking your plane tickets as the blooms at Kawachi Fuji-en normally appear around late April or early May. Best thing is, is that if you go now you’ll also get a chance to see Japan’s famous cherry blossoms in all their colourful glory at the same time.
And if you still aren’t flowered out, the country’s Hitachi Seaside Park in Ibaraki province is renowned for its insane displays of ‘baby blue eyes’ flowers, and also has over one million daffodils and 170 varieties of tulips to Instagram too!
