Yuya no Nagafuji

Best time to visit is mid April.
Yuya no Nagafuji is said that in the Heian Period, Yuya Gozen (a princess favored by Taira no Munemori, the leader in the capital at that time), who was born and raised in the area, had a great love of wisterias and planted them there, and so they are called Yuya no Nagafuji, meaning Yuya's long wisteria.
There are wisteria trellises, including a large tree estimated to be roughly 850 years old and designated a national monument, in the precincts. The best time to see them is usually from Middle of April.
Both Iwata Yuya Memorial Park and Yuya Traditional Performing Arts Center adjoin Gyokoji Temple. At Iwata Yuya Memorial Park there are benches and a lawn where you can appreciate the wisterias that are full of people enjoying picnics.
Blooming conditions are subject to climate and weather conditions. For the latest information, please refer to the following URL.
