Great Wisteria at Ashikaga Flower Park

Great Wisteria at Ashikaga Flower Park

The Great Wisteria in Ashikaga Flower Park is over 150 years old. It is so large that it covers over 1000 square meters, which is over 600 tatami mats. The branches are supported by many beams in order compensate for the weight of the vines when the flower is in season.

In Ashikaga Flower Park there is a tree called the “Great Wisteria.” The tree is over 150 years old and its three large trellises are spread out to cover over 600 tatami mats or more than 1000 square meters. On the long vines of the tree blooms the rare double petal wisterias. The branches are supported by multiple beams, which create this umbrella effect. The Great Wisteria is in full bloom around late April to early May. Tochigi Prefecture has designated the wisteria tree as a Natural Monument. At night you are brought to another world as the Great Wisteria is illuminated. The illumination makes you feel like you have stepped into a surreal world. In the flower park there are other varieties of wisteria blooming. White wisterias hanging from an 80 meter long tunnel has also received the designation as a Natural Monument. The Kibana Wisteria Tunnel spans over 80 meters and features yellow colored wisteria and can be seen around early to mid-May. This yellow tunnel of wisteria is the only one in Japan. Depending on the time there will be a various colored wisteria in bloom. The colors that bloom go in the order of pale red, purple, white and lastly to yellow giving you the chance to enjoy the spectacle for a full month. Back in 2014 it was voted to be one the “Top 9 World Dream Destinations” and it was the only Japanese site on the list. Even CNN has claimed it to be equal to the tree of souls from the movie “Avatar.” The Japanese word for wisteria is fuji, which is good to know as to not be confused with Mount Fuji. Another flower that is in season with the wisteria is azaleas and can be seen at the Ashikaga Flower Park.
