Hanamiyama Park

Hanamiyama Park

Hanamiyama Park is a privately-owned field for flowering and ornamental trees, in southeast Fukushima City. The park is located within a satoyama-type landscape i.e. managed woodland hill country close to human habitat. What originally began more than 60 years ago with local farmers planting flowers and trees, has grown into a beautiful scene. The landowner generously turned the area into a park in 1959 to allow visitors to enjoy the beautiful flowers there. Hanamiyama Park is now a place where thousands of admirers visit every year!

Springtime visits see cherry, plum, and forsythia trees paint everything in vivid colors. A gentle pink and purple landscape waving in the breeze with the picturesque snow-capped Azuma Mountains in the distance makes for an amazing sight. The riot of spring colors is spectacular enough to merit calling this park Fukushima's very own Xanadu. The flowering landscape moves all who see it and has been preserved through the cooperation of the local residents.

Breathe in nature at this free park and enjoy a leisurely one-hour stroll that will take you from the foot of the hill to the summit. Travel through groves of flowering trees and other vibrant flowers in full bloom. Hanamiyama Park is the perfect getaway for a day for nature lovers, hikers, or people trying to escape for a short time. The best part is that spring isn’t the only beautiful time to visit. Marvel in wonder during the lush green summer foliage or the dappled colors of autumn.

When you visit this fairytale-like wonderland, it is recommended that visitors wear comfortable walking shoes as the terrain includes graveled paths, steep slopes, and slippery areas. Mid- through late April is the peak season, so ready your camera and your heart for the beauty that awaits.
