Travel 50 Miles north of Tokyo and you will find the peaceful city of Ashikaga. Founded in 1921, it is home to Japan’s oldest and largest Wisteria tree found in Ashikaga Flower Park.

This tree is described as the most beautiful tree in the world.

The tree is huge, an impressive nearly 2,000 square meters (half an acre). The tree’s life began in 1870, and is meticulously cared for. Due to the weight of its vines, they must be held up by steel supports.

This allows visitors of the park to walk beneath its amazing canopy and bathe in the pink and purple light reflected by the beautiful hanging blossoms.
