True travelers and lovers of natural beauty should definitely look into the Japanese city of Kitakyushu, which is located 4 hours from Tokyo. Kitakuyushu has an unearthly wisteria garden called Kawachi Fuji. It has a magnificent wisteria tunnel.
This is where it would be worth taking a walk! This garden, tended by the best landscape designers in the country, has many quaint, beautiful nooks. But only one of them is a real pearl of the garden. This element of the garden landscape has its own name, world-famous in the circles of connoisseurs, - the Wisteria Tunnel.
Wisteria - the scientific name of wisteria, given to it two hundred years ago. And its Greek name has one root with the word "glucose".
Wisteria is “sweet” because it exudes the sweetest aromas.
From all sides in the Wisteria tunnel, the walking public is surrounded by delicate climbing vines of wisteria. They have completely braided the frame of the tunnel, and their heavy, luxurious, blossoming and wildly blooming clusters fall down in a dense carpet.
Everyone who walks through the Wisteria flower tunnel gets the impression of the absolute unreality of what is happening, as if they managed to find themselves inside a surreal picture, among the magical elven thickets, painted in incredibly juicy, bright colors.
Here you can take truly beautiful photographs that will become the pride of any traveler's collection.
But the photographs, even those that we see here, that is, flawlessly taken from the technical point of view, cannot convey all the delicate beauty of blooming wisteria vines. After all, the atmosphere of this beautiful garden includes silence, in which sounds are softened and concealed by thousands of fresh flower petals, and light breaths of the breeze that accidentally made their way through dense thickets, and a subtle, enchanting, beautiful, sweet aroma of wisteria inflorescences. All this remains behind the scenes.
This extraordinary wisteria tunnel immerses its guests in a special, indescribable atmosphere, affecting all the senses at once. A sudden harmony overwhelms a person snatched from his noisy and business-like everyday life, and not ready for such an aesthetic extravaganza.
Perhaps, more than one wandering philosopher, the Wisteria tunnel inspired sad thoughts about the Garden of Eden, once lost by man.
Wisteria blooms in spring. And every year from April to May, many travelers come here, to the Kawachi Fuji Garden, to join the great Japanese national tradition - a leisurely and concentrated contemplation of beauty.
