Walking along the pathways of Kawachi Wisteria garden (Karachi Fujien) to the south of the centre of Kitayushu, it’s easy to imagine oneself walking through a Van Gogh landscape. With floral domes and carpets of coloured petals, it is a pleasant scene.

The garden is maybe best known for its numerous tumbling foxgloves, its climbing plants and woody plants in purple, pink and white. Throughout the colourful trail, more than 150 varieties of flowers are mixed together, the 100 metre long tunnels are also not to be missed, giving you the impression that you’re walking through a cloud of flowers.

The flora is nonetheless capricious; the foxglove season is from mid-April to mid-May. But if you miss it, there is a second season, albeit with more autumnal colours on display; head out from mid-November to early December during the maple leaf season.
