The Hana Biyori Botanical Garden opened in early 2020, and the venue is home to a wide variety of floral beauty to enjoy. A highlight during late winter and early spring are the plum trees in bloom, which number around 200 and encompass several varieties such as Kankobai, Shirakaga, and Beni-chidori.
A plum festival will be held at the garden from early to late February, with benches and wagasa (traditional umbrellas) set up to create a tea ceremony-style atmosphere for those viewing the blossoms.
If you do plan on attending, please note that the garden is closed on Monday, February 19 during the event dates.
Hana Biyori is located approximately 10 minutes on foot from from Keio Yomiuri-land Station. A free shuttle also operates from the station to the venue and vice versa on 15 minute intervals as outlined below:
