Ashikaga Flower Park, very famous for its breathtaking wisteria in May, features gorgeous illumination in winter. The light-up of the gardens produces incredible colors and high-contrast. But the garden near the entrance has a soft and gentle-colored illumination of birds flying. They are specially prepared using the world’s first examples of organic EL technology.
There are many photo spots with fascinating scenery in the background. People make long lines here, but it’s worth the wait. If you are hungry, you can stop by some food stands or restaurants to enjoy hot drinks and light meals. The light-up hour starts at 4:30PM, between October 25 and February 5. It takes about one hour to walk around the gardens.

Japan is a small island nation, but we have a huge number of surprising things to discover here. Many of these delights can be found when you step off the main street onto small side paths. I really enjoy studying about and researching various aspects of traditional Japanese culture, and then sharing this information with visitors to Japan. I hope you will enjoy it, too! ARTICLE INDEX & PHOTOS: An index of most of my Japan Travel articles can be found at the entry page of my blog, and my photos are shown here. 日本はとても小さな国ですが、大通りから一本小道に入ればたくさんの発見があります。日本人が積み重ねてきた歴史を学びながら、古い建物や庭を訪ね、物語の舞台となった景色を眺めて、皆様といっしょに日本文化の奥深さを探求していきたいと思います。
