The garden’s most noticeable features are the two roughly 100 meter long tunnels full of wisteria trees of differing varieties and colors, ranging from white to dark purple.

As a child I used to visit this place with my parents and I thought I have come to the heaven on earth. It was amazingly beautiful.

The visuals are mesmerizing. Kawachi Wisteria Garden has around 150 wisteria trees and 22 different species of wisteria. Wisteria has been coaxed to grow up a long row of arches, and its petals dangle down as though in a fantasy setting, in the two amazing wisteria tunnels.

Nature has its own way of expression beyond imagination. Amazing isn’t it?
