Hundred Year Old Wisteria Tree Blooms At Ashikaga Flower Park

About 100 kilometers outside of Tokyo is the stunning Ashikaga Park. It features hundreds of beautiful flowers but the main attraction is this Wisteria tree.

This giant Wisteria tree is estimated to be over 100 years and it’s branches have to be supported in order for the old tree to sustain the weight of the hundreds of flowers that bloom.

The park is open all year round but admission price changes depending on the time of year. The wisteria is usually at full bloom for the first two weeks of May so if you want to see this magnificent display then you will have to time your trip appropriately. But be warned this is also the park’s busiest time of year as everybody wants to have a glimpse at this blooming tree.

Ashikaga Flower Park has more than 350 wisterias and their colors vary from pink, purple, blue, and white-lavender. It is definitely a spectacular place to visit and should be on everyone’s bucket list.
