@anaoha A purple heart for everyone 💜
I’ve been thinking how flower parks have become an important part of Japanese tourism, especially for domestic tourism. Places like these, with seasonal flowers, attract thousands of visitors every year.
They are not so popular among foreign tourists (yet) and I think that is because if it’s your first time in Japan, you would like to see other things first such as important cultural heritages, temples, famous city spots and so on.
When I first came to Japan, I wanted to see as many UNESCO World Heritage sites as possible. After traveling across the country, from Hokkaido to Hiroshima, I checked most of the places I really wanted to see. When I came to Japan for the second time, I started discovering flower parks and became obsessed with them. I haven’t been to so many countries so far but I was wondering if there is any other country with as many beautiful flower parks, gardens and in general seasonal flowers, as Japan. You have tulips in Holland and lavender in France, but in Japan you have these two plus many others: wisteria, nemophila, higanbana, kochia and so on.
Would you like to visit flower parks/flower fields in Japan?
Enjoy your Saturday! ✨
