Spring is the most exceptional season of the year; flowers blooming, birds singing, branches of trees dancing; it's just amazing! But this season is even more special for Japan because it happens to be the time for its annual 'Great Wisteria Festival,' a wondrous display that's not to be missed.
Located at the distance of two hours from Tokyo's railway station, Ashikaga Flower Park in Japan's Tochigi prefecture is the host of the festival and possesses over 350 wisteria trees that enrich the park with glaring colors.
People visiting the park can also take a stroll through an 80 metre-long tunnel covered by incredible white wisteria flowers.
Some of the trees are more than 150 years old, making them a landmark of Japanese natural heritage.
This year, the festival is going to start from 15th Of April and will last 'till may end. In 2014 it was marked as the "dream destinations for 2014," One of the wanderlusts has termed the Wisteria Flowers as "nearly identical to Avatar's spiritual Tree of Souls."
Then, what are you waiting for? Just squirrel away some pennies, grab your bags and just experience the tranquillity of this festival.
