Kawachi Wisteria Garden

By Weekender Editor

Get lost in this secluded private garden. Located in Kitakyushu City, this space is home to over 20 kinds of wisterias. Stroll down through one of the two (or both, if you have all afternoon) tunnels for a magical experience that can’t be found anywhere else in Kyushu. The garden is only open during the spring and autumn, when it boasts colorful flowers and fall colors.

Please note: Advance booking is required in spring only. Check the website for more details.
