【臨時休園中】 本日の園内は本当に「美しい」の一言でした。 大藤や八重黒龍藤が満開となり、最高の瞬間を迎えております。 最高の瞬間は数日程度。 私たちスタッフは365日のうち360日をこの瞬間のために頑張って参りました。 来年は多くのお客様に見て頂けることを、今はただ願うばかりです。 事態の沈静化、皆様のご安全を心よりお祈りいたします。 【temporary closed】 From April 13, the park will be temporarily closed. It is a state in the garden today. We sincerely hope that this will calm down and that you will be safe. #あしかがフラワーパーク #あしフラ #はなまっぷ #はな #花 #花部 #花が好き #花が好きな人と繋がりたい #花のある暮らし #花のある風景 #世界の夢の旅行先 #世界の夢の旅行先10カ所 #栃木の魅力を伝え隊 #素通り禁止足利 #ashikagaflowerpark #ashikaga_flower_park #ashikaga #tochigi #japan #flower #flowers #flowerstagram #flowerstagramer #mytochigi #visitjapan #discoverjapan #tlを花でいっぱいにしよう #私たちに今できること #うす紅藤 #藤の花

Wisteria trees are vines, and their flowers go all the way to the ground. Wisteria trees are actually giant umbrellas.
In Japan, wisteria trees symbolize love and beauty. The gorgeous trees are a symbol of immortality and victory.

If you ever go to the park, make sure you book your trip in spring, preferably in the middle of April to the middle of May. You don’t want to miss the “Flower Garden of Lights” event.

White fuji flowers make a tunnel, and there’s a restaurant for all the food lovers.
