Ashikaga flower park became famous since CNN introduced it's big wisteria tree
But there are many beautiful seasonal flowers except for the wisteria, such as roses.
They say Ashikaga school is the oldest school in Japan. Many priests and samurai learned in there.We can see old buildings.The school is over 500 years old or more.
Next to the school, there is an old temple, Bannaji.
It was built on the ruin of samurai residence.
Orihime shrine is located on a hill so we can see breathtaking view from there.
JR fare from Ashikaga flower park to Ashikaga, 200 Yen per person.
Entrance fee for Ashikaga school, 420 per person.
Entrance fee for Ashikaga flower park, it changes depends on flower situation.
We have to walk a lot and climb steep steps to Orihime shrine so you need comfortable shoes.
Ashikaga school closes every Monday.
So I can't do this tour on Monday.
Nao was an excellent tour guide. Other than myself, my mom and my dad were the only other people on the tour. Nao accompanied us on the trains to get to the samurai museum and to the bhuddist temple. It was also very nice of him to Take us to the vegetarian restaurant for the lunch. The samurai museum was very interesting and informative and the temple was very beautiful. I enjoyed the tour very much. It was also very nice of Nao to meet us at the hotel to take us on the tour. Suzette Carrillo
