…and it will make you book a ticket to Japan immediately!

If you’re looking for your next holiday destination we may have just found it for you!

Not just home to the freshest sushi imaginable, robot shows, and karaoke on every corner, Japan is also the proud owner of this stunning tunnel of wisteria!

The tunnel is located inside Kawachi Fuji Gardens in Kitakyushu, Japan (5 hours from Tokyo) and draws crowds from all over the world. The garden features 150 wisteria plants from 20 different species but the tunnel itself is the crown jewel.
The flowers haven’t bloomed this year yet so you still have time to pack a bag and board a plane! Late April and mid-May are said to be the best times to catch a glimpse of the tunnel at its best. If you happen to arrive before April 27-29, you can even attend the annual Wisteria Festival.
Imagery of wisteria, or fuji in Japanese, is often used in a wide variety of Japanese art forms including pottery and painting. It holds great cultural significance dating back to the Nara Period, with it being featured in Buddhist beliefs and historical legends. Wisteria viewing parties are popular and a Kabuki dance called “Fuji Musume” translates to Wisteria Maiden.
