According to many, spring is the queen of the seasons. You can feel it here in Japan, going on a journey through the most beautiful parks and gardens of the country, dotted with various seasonal flowers. Despite the fact that sakura flowers are associated with spring in Japan, there are other equally beautiful spring flowers. One of these colors that attracts our attention is the tulip! He is considered the most romantic bulbous flower, the beauty of which you can go on a trip to Japan in the spring?
Travelers from all over the world flock to the Netherlands to see incredible fields and tulip gardens. The same thing happens with Japan when sakura blooms. In my opinion, spring tours to Japan should include trips to some stunning tulip parks, such as the Hamamatsu Flower Park in Shizuoka or the Showa Memorial Park in Tokyo. Please note that the best time to admire tulips in Japan is from mid-April to early May. So, let’s get acquainted with a dozen of the best places to admire tulips in Japan.
