Kawachi Wisteria Garden

This one feels like a pastel portal straight into a freakin’ fairytale. Saunter into a periwinkle-colored tunnel made from over 150 flowering wisteria plants, with varying shades of light and dark during the blooming season. Kawachi Fuji Gardens are a bit of a hike from Tokyo, located about 5 hours away by train, but we think it’s worth the hype. Just be sure to visit between April and May, otherwise you’ll be greeted by an empty mass of twisted branches. And that’s just not the move.

Thousands of mystical purple wisterias are draped over in a tunnel formation at this beautiful Japanese garden. Walk beneath rows of magical, blooming strands of pigmented wisteria at this hidden gem.

Taking a leisure stroll under a canvas of electric violet is the norm at Kawachi Wisteria Garden, one of Japan’s (many) gorgeous botanical attractions. We hadn’t heard of a “flower tunnel” until we came across this place, and we gotta say, bright purple is quite the shade for it — especially when it’s 100 meters in length.
