Wisteria Tunnel

There’s something so romantic about rows of wisteria swaying in the breeze. Although you can find the purple plant in various places around the world, there are three particular spots in Japan that are home to dozens, and in some cases hundreds, of wisteria plants. They just might be even more beautiful than Japan’s famous cherry blossoms.

First off, please enjoy several different views of wisteria tunnels that can be found in Japan:

The cascades of lavender purple are absolutely gorgeous. There are three main places in Japan where you can view these beautiful oceans of purple. The first is the Kawachi Fuji Garden in Kitakyushu City, Fukuoka Prefecture.

You can also find rows of wisteria at the Ashikaga Flower Park, 80 kilometers north of Tokyo in Tochigi Prefecture.

Or view the wisteria at the Kasuga Shrine and Manyo Botanical Garden.

So now that you’ve had a closer look at the wisteria in Japan, which do you prefer?

  Delicate cherry blossoms or lovely wisteria? You decide.Screen Shot 2013-11-28 at 11.55.23 AM
