Last year I went through a wisteria withdrawl after visiting the famous Kawachi Fuji Gardens in Kitakyushu.  Apparently I did not get enough of these beautiful flowers even after two visits.  Not wanting to make yet another three hour drive (each way), I searched for a wisteria garden closer to Iwakuni and found one in Sera, Hiroshima.


Sign for the garden

Located less than two hours away, and at about half the price in tolls compared to Kitakyushu, it was lovely place to spend a couple of hours.  I was going to blog about it last year but gave up in frustration because, for some reason, WordPress seems to enjoy giving my otherwise bright, colorful photos a grayish overlay.  I still haven’t figured out the mysterious forces sucking the life out of my photos, but until then here are some information.


We visited the garden as part of a day trip, visiting the Shibasakura nearby as well as a waterfall. Tank-24

The park is basically a miniature wisteria forest, where you can wander about under the canopy of pink and purple flowers.  The trees here are mostly left to grow naturally, not conformed to trellises or tunnels, giving it a completely different feel than the Kawachi Fuji Gardens.


We visited at the end of the day, after Golden Week had ended, and we had the park mostly to ourselves.  It was so peaceful and I could have easily spent a lot of time there.


There’s a charming little playground right in the middle of the garden, with slides, tire swings, log swings, and a seated merry-go-round.  There’s also a gift shop and a cafeteria (11:00 AM – 3:00 PM).

Tank-23Dogs are allowed at the park, so Finn and Pepper came along with us as well.


Usually the peak season for the wisteria at the park coincides with other flower parks in the area (tulips, shibasakura, poppy, etc), so I recommend an early start for a full day of sightseeing!
