Hamamatsu Flower Park | Japan Highlights Travel, for sightseeing around Tokaido

Hamamatsu Station 

[Hamamatsu Flower Park]

Highlight! A contest between some 1,300 sakura trees and colorful tulips

This vast flower theme park has around 3,000 diverse kinds of plants, and is a place where you can enjoy seasonal flowers and greenery all year round. The sakura season starts in the middle of February with early flowering sakura (kawazu-zakura, kanzanji-zakura etc.), and when the somei-yoshino start to flower at the end of March we know we're entering the hanami season proper. The way the 1,300 or so somei-yoshino and yaezakura ("double-flowered cherry trees") in the "Sakura and Tulip Garden" and the around 500,000 tulips vie for visitors' attention is a real highlight. From late April to early May, the wisteria (trellis, garden topiary, potted, etc.) is another of the highlights. The Lake Hamana Flower Festa is held every year from mid March, with Hamamatsu Flower Park as its main venue.
