Shizuoka's Acao Forest is home to 13 themed gardens, with 9 of them focused on roses. In particular, the English Rose Garden is famous for its wild rose varieties which are difficult to see elsewhere in Japan. The Acao Rose Festa is billed as one of the best rose events in the Kanto region, with around 4000 roses covering an incredible 600 species to enjoy.

There are other flowers too, such as blue foxgloves and delphiniums, creating some beautifully colorful landscapes.
