Trip: Ashikaga flowerpark

Wisteria trees are beside cherry trees a very popular kind of plant in Japan. You can see those and many other flowers in the Ashikaga flowerpark around 2 hours north from Tokyo. The park is big and offers a lot of colorful and different flowers depending on the season. In the evening the flowers are literally put under a different light which makes you want to go through the park once again. However apart from the flowerpark there is nothing else worth seeing at that area.
