Let's enjoy viewing beautiful wisteria!


Ashikaga is located 80km north From Tokyo. The city has a lovely atmosphere with a lot of tourist attractions for relaxing.
Ashikaga Flower Park is famous for its biggest wisteria in Japan. In 2014 the park has been chosen as one of Dream destinations of 2014 by CNN.

The best time to see the wisteria changes slightly each year, but in general, from late April to the middle of May would be the best season.
I hope to enjoy the amazingly beautiful "Wisteria world".

A Recent Review of this tour

Yoko-san arranged a great day for us. She took great care of the seniors so that all of us could enjoy. We managed to visit most famous spots in Ashikaga, and enjoyed the illumination very much. Yoko-san explained the history of Japan and the spots in good English and great patience. Lunch arrangement was superb. I very much appreciated for Yoko-san's help making my family have a great day in Ashikaga.
