The true gift is one family's generosity

Every spring, hundreds of thousands of visitors flock to Hanamiyama Park to see the remarkable work of the Abe family. Since they first opened their privately owned farmland to the public as a park in 1959. Visit this park to enjoy hundreds of cherry blossoms and other flowers.

How to Get There

The park is a 15-minute bus ride from Fukushima Station.

From Tokyo, take the Tohoku Shinkansen to Fukushima Station. During cherry blossom season, a 15-minute bus ride will take you within walking distance of the park entrance.

Backstory

The Abe family began planting the hillsides around their farm in the 1920s as a way to generate extra income by selling flowers.

In 1959, the family created a park, which they named Hanamiyama, and opened it to the public. Since 1959, three generations have continued to look after Hanamiyama and enjoy its success.

A multitude of flowers

Visit the park to see a wide variety of blossoms, including cherry and plum trees, rapeseed blossoms, weeping forsythia, and lily magnolia. The park also has gorgeous displays of hydrangeas, golden-rayed lilies, and brightly colored azaleas. In addition, non-native trees and plants are also scattered throughout the park.
