Spring is the most magical time of year to be in Japan. It’s not only because of the country’s world-famous cherry blossoms, but also the annual Great Wisteria Festival. An enchanting display that’s not to be missed.
The Great Wisteria Festival of 2017 is set to start on April 15, and will last until late May. Ashikaga Flower Park was previously listed as one of CNN’s “dream destinations for 2014.” With one travel writer remarking that the wisteria trees looked “nearly identical to Avatar’s spiritual Tree of Souls.” If you can’t afford inter-dimensional travel, then a trip to Tochigi just might do the trick.
