Breathtaking destinations you have to see to believe!

“A visit to the Ashikaga Flower Park in Tochigi Prefecture, Japan, is so surreal it’s like entering into a different world” says Liza, who introduced us to this magical place. Enclosed in a sea of mostly blue, white, purple and pink wisteria, the park is whimsical and fairytale-like. Wisteria are known as “fuji” in Japanese and perhaps this explains why the Japanese love them so much.

Besides flowers, the park also consists of restaurants and shops. There is a small entrance fee to pay which may fluctuate according to season. The peak season for the park is usually between late April and early May, where entrance fees will cost around 1000 yen (pictures seen here were taken in early May). During winter, the park puts on an impressive winter illumination display that combines multi-coloured LED lights and screens with synchronised music.
