Venue : Sera Kogen Farm, Hiroshima When : Late Apr - Mid May 2025

There are plenty of beautiful springtime blooms to enjoy once cherry blossom season passes, and one of the most elegant is wisteria, known as fuji in Japanese. One ethereal place to appreciate them is at Hiroshima's Sera Kogen Farm, which is home to approximately 1000 wisteria trees. A festival is held when the trees are looking their best, which also coincides with lupine season.

The purple-hued scenery makes for some excellent photo backdrops, so make sure your devices (camera, phones) are fully charged!

In addition to all the floral beauty to enjoy, there will be fun themed eats available for purchase, including a purple cream filled "wisteria" dorayaki, and wisteria soft cream.
