Kawachi Wisteria Tunnels Experience

Wisteria paradise up close

 By Tristan Scholze   May 6, 2015

Walking through a 110-meter tunnel of wisteria blooms is an unforgettable experience. There’s not much like it. At Kawachi Fuji-en, these are no ordinary trellises and garden gates, for the scale brings this park into the realm of real-life fairy tales. The moving fragrance of wisteria blossoms surround you on top of the impact of these vibrant colors and exquisite detail of millions upon millions of flowers that seem to reach down from the sky for you and you alone—serenity is at your fingertips. You can also watch it here.
