A garden at the edge of Lake Hamana, surrounded by vibrant flowers in all four seasons.
From around June, the cherry tree avenues transform into hydrangea-lined paths, Japanese irises bloom in purples and yellows, and the whole park is dyed in bright, vivid colors. Also during this time of year, you can see fireflies in the park, glittering majestically in the evening sky.
In October, the vibrant blooms of amethyst sage and roses flood the park with brilliant colors. The "Hamamatsu Chrysanthemum Convention" is held in November. Members of the Hamamatsu Chrysanthemum Committee exhibit the flowers that they have grown, and compete against each other. Starting from mid-November, there is the "Hyakushu Tsugiwakegiku" display. It is a display of more than 100 different varieties of chrysanthemums which have all been grafted onto a single base. You can see many different colors and shapes of flowers all in one place. This style of display was originally developed by an artisan in the Edo Period, and is not to be missed.
For December, the park is in Christmas mode. There are dazzling illuminations, a Christmas tree, concerts, and other Christmas events going on throughout the month. In the New Year, January brings rapeseed blossoms and daffodils, with plum flowers starting to bloom in February. And then it's spring all over again. No matter what time during the year you visit Hamamatsu Flower Park, you will be greeted by seasonal plants and enjoyable sights.
For indoor exhibits, there is a large greenhouse called the "Crystal Palace" in the center of the park. When you step inside, the first thing you'll see is the patio area covered in large flowers blooming to welcome you. As you progress into the interior, you will find the Garden Theater, where there are elaborate displays that change from season to season. (When we toured the park, the display was a collection of vivid and exotic colored Majorelle Blue plants.) At the large fountain in front of the Crystal Palace, there is a show every 30 minutes, on the hour and at half past, where music plays and the water almost seems to dance. If you visit the park at night, you can watch the show under illumination.
