RitsurinGardenTakamatsuKagawasep20

The floating port city of Takamatsu sings a vibrant, many-part harmony – esteemed castle grounds that host fashionable craft fairs, the small town/big city energy of a prefectural capital. There are numerous sightseeing attractions including spots from which you can enjoy the beautiful landscape of the Seto Inland Sea like Yashima and Goshikidai, places where you can appreciate the stunning nature during all four seasons like Ritsurin Garden, and spots connected to history like Tamamo Park (Ruins of Takamatsu Castle), and Shikoku Mura Village. You can also can take a ferry ride from Takamatsu to remote Ogijima and Megijima, where modern art festivals are held. It’s urban Japan at its most lovely and free of pretension.

Hopefully this review of Takamatsu, Japan will inspire you to take a trip soon!

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.
