Become enchanted by vibrant reds and pinks in a park dedicated to azaleas

Gunma Prefecture



Just 1 hour via the Tobu Railway Limited Express Ryomo from Asakusa Station in Tokyo, the beautiful Tsutsujigaoka Park in Tatebayashi provides visitors with a place to see the vibrant red and pink colors of azaleas each year from April through May. 

This azalea park has been continuously maintained since the Edo period (1603–1868) for a total of about 400 years, which means that the view of the azaleas you see may be the same sight that feudal lords of the Edo period saw. The park is also home to a large cluster of wild azaleas preserved in their natural state that are over 800 years old, and the space azalea that the Tatebayashi-born astronaut Chiaki Mukai took with her aboard the Space Shuttle Columbia and raised from a seed. 

Gunma is also home to many other places where you can enjoy a variety of flowers—do not miss them.


How to get there


From Tokyo Station, take the JR Ueno Tokyo Line and get off at Kuki Station (about 50 minutes). Transfer to the Tobu Isesaki Line and get off at Tatebayashi Station (about 30 minutes). Tsutsujigaoka Park is about 25 minutes on foot or 5 minutes by taxi from Tatebayashi Station.
