Kawachi Fuji Gardens in Kitakyushu, Japan is where you will find this pastel-colored floral tunnel.

The gardens are famous for the spectacularly presented, large numbers of wisteria flowers. The garden’s most prominent features are two, roughly 100 meter long tunnels made of wisteria trees of differing varieties and colors, ranging from white to dark purple. There is also a collection of large wisteria trees that together form an enormous roof of drooping flowers. A viewpoint at the top of the hillside garden allows for nice views over the sea of wisteria flowers and the surrounding valley which is also know for its bamboo groves.

Moraine Lake, Alberta

Banff Canada

Moraine Lake is a glacially fed lake in Banff National Park. It is surrounded by mountains, waterfalls, and rock piles, creating a scene so stunning it almost seems unreal. That view of the mountains behind the lake in Valley of the Ten Peaks is known as the “Twenty Dollar View”, as Moraine Lake was featured on the reverse side of the 1969 and 1979 issues of the Canadian twenty dollar bill.

Sit lakeside and absorb the sights and pure mountain air, or explore further by canoeing and hiking.
