Fukushima’s utopia Hanamiyama Park
Overview of Hanamiyama Park
Hanamiyama Park in the Tori district of Fukushima City, Fukushima Prefecture, is known as a tourist attraction that has become very famous for its catchphrase “There is utopia in Fukushima”.Originally, this is a private land opened by a flower gardener who grows flowers for cut flowers.
Tourists came here to see beautiful flowers from around 1950, after the end of World War II. The Flower producers named Hanamiyama Park in 1959 and opened it free of charge in an effort to cheer up those who suffered from the war.
Around 1975, photographer Shotaro Akiyama frequently visited Hanamiyama Park and introduced it in various places, acclaiming that “Fukushima has Togenkyo”, so the beauty of Hanamiyama Park has become known nationwide. During the cherry blossom season in April, the colorful flowers cultivated for cut flowers bloom to cover the entire mountain.
Scenery of flowers seen at Hanamiyama Park
Hanamiyama Park has three courses: a 30-minute course, a 45-minute course, and a 60-minute course.
You may feel a little painful for those with weak legs, but you can enjoy a spectacular view of the whole Hanamiyama Park, Fukushima city area, and the Azuma mountain range from a high ground.
The scenery of Hanamiyama Park seems to change every year depending on the cultivated varieties. It is up to the producer to see what the next year will look like.
The Hanamiyama viewing course is a long distance away, so there are only a few places that are crowded, such as bus stops and shops.
This is a Hanamiyama Park walking course, which is a famous spot for sightseeing. This was an early part of the walking course, so it was very popular with tourists.
Manor violation is prohibited
Hanamiyama Park is a private property, so do not enter the fields you are growing without permission. The number of places that can be viewed may be reduced, or the number of places where entry is prohibited may increase.
